What is a Virtual 5K?
A Virtual 5K is like any other 5K race, but with a different way of participating. A runner will run/walk the 5K race on their own time in a location they choose. This could be around the neighborhood, in a park, on a treadmill, with friends, family or alone. The runner must complete the 5K between the start and end dates that are set.
