*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Join us for our sixth annual Father’s Day 5K & 10K virtual race! Father’s Day is June 16, 2019! It’s time to celebrate your father the HERO! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.” *For a limited time purchase your official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE. What: This is a 5K and 10K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the awesome Dads out there! You choose which distance you want to complete. When: Complete your race any time in June 2019. Even better if it’s on Father’s Day, which is June 16th!  Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because this is our way of celebrating Father’s Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Team Hoyt Cost:  The price is $20 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Team Hoyt.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Run on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
