Virtual 5k

How does the Virtual 5k work?

While we would love to have everyone join us in Mesa, Arizona, we know that isn’t possible for many of you. So, for those of you unable to make it in person, we invite you to run with us virtually.  That means you can still participate by picking a time and place convenient for you to do your #RUN3rd 5k.

To register, click here and select the ‘Virtual 5k’ option (international if you live outside the US).  Then pick a time and place to do your 5k (3.1 miles).  It can be done at a local event, on your favorite running path (or treadmill), while on vacation or around your neighborhood.  You can do it on April 7th while we are running in Mesa or pick another day and time between now and April 30th.


Once you finish your 5k, we encourage you to post your experience and pictures on our Facebook Event Page or tag us on Twitter and Instagram. Use hashtag #RUN3rd5k so we can all celebrate with you.

After the event on April 7th we will begin sending shirts and medals out to all our virtual runners.
