Virtual Race

Run for those who can’t, whenever you can! Show your support by becoming a virtual participant with this easy and fun community running/walking option. You will get all of the benefits of our race day participants.

This means, depending on when you sign up, you can complete this up to a month prior to or after race day and simply submit your details – race date, location, race distance, and finish time. You’ll then be sent a medal and t-shirt to show you did it and helped those who enslaved and trafficked be free again! The honor system is in effect.

Physical race date is Saturday August 31 at 9:00 am. Virtual race registration will remain open until September 15. All runs must be completed by Sept.30.

Our virtual challenge partner, Pacer Pedometer, will count your steps, show your miles, and help you share your success with others interested in fighting human trafficking. Sign up today and the details will be on the way to you.
