On January 6th, the world lost an amazing man, Sidney Poitier. The Hollywood star was known for films including Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night and Lilies of the Field, for which he became the first Black man to win a Best Actor Oscar. One of our favorite Sidney Poitier films is To Sir, With Love. So to honor Sidney we are celebrating with our To Sidney, With Love 1M 5K 10K 13.1 26.2.
Poitier was also very involved in civil-rights activism, so at least 15% of every registration to the Equal Justice Initiative, an organization that is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American Society.

Cost: The price is $18 and that includes your medal, bib and at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Equal Justice Initiative. *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. Running and walking on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5Ks, 10K, half marathon and more! Each of our races benefits a different charity. We’ve already raised more than $892,045 for charities from running events on this website! We are making a difference…one race at a time.
