Important Announcement About This Year’s Randi’s Race
As you may know, there is a lot of uncertainty about the spread of the COVID-19 and the future of our communities. We have made a difficult and yet the right decision to transition Randi’s Race: A 5k Run/Walk for Hope and Courage to a Virtual Race. We remain hopeful that the threat of COVID-19 will soon diminish and that we can responsibly return to our normal activities. However, public health and safety remain a top priority, and we plan to continue to follow the directives of CDC, national and local health authorities.
WHAT’S A ‘VIRTUAL RACE’? A virtual race is a race you can run or walk from the location of your choice. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on a trail, on a treadmill, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself! After the virtual race, participants post their times, be recognized on our race results page. More FAQs can be found here.
