Join us for our ninth annual Father’s Day 1M 5K 10K 13.1 26.2 virtual race! Father’s Day is June 18, 2023! It’s time to celebrate the #1 Dad in your life! This a fun medal made of slate with this phrased engraved on it, “DAD, YOU ARE MY FATHER”
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.”
These medals are GARAGE MADE – that’s right, they were made right here in our very garage! We’ve been adding some locally made medals, and these ones are made of slate and turned out so beautiful! This medal is 5 inches and comes with a Virtual Race Events bib where you can write in your race, distance and time.
What: This is a 1M 5K 10K 13.1 26.2 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 2023! Medals will start shipping out mid-May!
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 $17.99 and that includes your medal, bib and donation to charity. 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. 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.
