About this Event
On Saturday, June 19th, 2021, join the We Are Run Series and Fit, Black, and Educated, Inc. for our annual Juneteenth Celebration Virtual 5k run/walk. This event commemorates June 19th, 1865, the date when the last remaining Black American slaves in the Confederacy were emancipated, effectively marking the end of chattel slavery in the United States. Join us from wherever you are to celebrate a new beginning and reflect on this historic day.
What is a virtual walk / race? A virtual walk/race is a race that can be ran/walked/jogged at any location. You can use your treadmill, walk in your neighborhood, run outside or while you're participating in another walk. The race / walk is at your own pace but PLEASE adhere to the current social distancing measures suggested by the CDC and wear your mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19
1) Participants who register for the Virtual 5k will receive a custom race bib and a medal. Your race bib will be sent to you virtually so that you can design it with whatever or whomever is motivating you to get out and stay active during such a hard time. You may use your app of choice whether it is NikeRun, MapMyRun, AddidasRun, etc. Your commemorative medals will be shipped out no later than May 12th.
2) Please share your results, experiences, videos and photos on your social media (@wearerunseries @fitblackandeducated) or email them to us at [email protected] with the hashtag #Juneteenth5k. Visit our official race website: www.fitblackandeducated.org/wearerunseries.
