About This Activity
This is a VIRTUAL RUN! Which means no official race site, and no official race time! No early wake up times and you get to sleep in your bed. However you are on the Honor System. From May 15th to July 4th, are the event dates to run, walk, skip, low crawl, or perform your 5K however you’d like! You pick when, where, and how you want to finish your 5K. You can even combine this event with another race you’re doing!!!
This event helps raise funds for Princess for Paws, a non-profit organization that provides financial assitance for Veterans and Families in need of Service Dogs!!!!
We do have one request, we ask that you take a picture of yourself (safely) while doing your run and post it to our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/princessforpawsonslow. If you are able to include your dog, it’ll make it even better (we are a dog charity after all).
Event details and schedule
You pick when, where, and how you want to complete your 5k! Just make sure you get it done before July 4th.
