A Note on Miles Submission:
This is NOT a entire month of May personal cumulative miles submission. Please submit the number of miles you ran for your ‘Rona Run-Off event – as if you were lining up for the race but instead of calling this a 5k you can choose whatever distance you want. The cumulative part of this event involves adding up the total miles of everyone’s ‘Rona Run-Off once they are all submitted. You do not need to complete your ‘Rona Run-Off on Saturday, May 16th at 9:00am but if you would like to feel like you are running “collectively” you can do your run at that time when you know many other people are out doing the same thing.
What: A FREE Virtual Run/Walk Event to run “together” as a community and also gives shoes to essential staff, specifically those who work hard in janitorial and healthcare roles in our communities.
Help put shoes on the feet of those who are in these serving positions by submitting your miles ran/walked.
Every 50 miles submitted by participants in the event = 1 pair of shoes donated. Please see the note on Miles submissions in the black box above.
Who: Anyone who lives and/or works in and around areas surrounding Oshkosh, Fox Cities, and Greater Green Bay.
When: Registration is open from May 1st through May 10th. Event bibs will be mailed out on May 11th. You may participate at any time between when you receive your bib and May 31st. If you would like to feel like you are participating with a “group” we are setting the official date and time of this virtual run at 9:00am on Saturday, May 16th. You do not have to complete your ‘Rona Run-Off at this time if you do not want to.
How far?: Any distance you choose!
Please Submit Your Miles After Your Run! The deadline to submit your miles is Sunday, May 31st. Submit the number of miles you ran or walked for this virtual event via the button at the top of this webpage or under “How To Participate” below. You may only submit your miles once, for one run or walk.
Where: Anywhere! (respecting social distancing rules, of course)
Included with your registration:
There are no individual awards for speed or distance, but Run Away Shoes will donate pairs of shoes to janitorial and healthcare workers in our area based on total miles collectively ran/walked of all virtual run participants! Every 50 miles = 1 pair of shoes.
FREE EVENT REGISTRATION
