Our Virtual Run and How it Works
- Open to everyone
- Run/walk your own course. You can run 5k, 10k, 15k, 20k, or 1k as you would at our Strong Kids Run.
- You have 2 days to complete your chosen event.
- The distance must be completed in 1 attempt. Meaning you can‚Äôt break down 20 km into 10 km Saturday and 10 km Sunday.
- Your distance can be measured using Google Maps, a Personal Fitness Tracker like a Fit Bit or Apps such as Map My Run, Just Move, Strava and Run keeper.¬†
- You can run a route, your driveway, living room or yard. The main idea is to have fun!
- Post a photo, video or your route to one of the social media formats below please include your time and distance (see sample pictures below) :
