June’s run challenge we present to you: the Run For It virtual half marathon & 5k race!
On Sunday, July 5th any and everyone is encouraged to register and take part in a unique spin on the usual challenge of a 13.1 half marathon or 5k run. For this race, YOU choose your own custom route, anywhere in our beautiful city or wherever you may be - then complete the half marathon or 5k on your own or with friends and family. Livestream, record, take pics and document your journey as we’ll be sharing everyone’s own race journey throughout the day from all over the city and hopefully beyond!
100% of ALL RACE PROCEEDS will then be donated to the two following organizations:
1. The Loveland Foundation - An organization committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on black women and girls.
2. Islamic relief USA: Lost among our own countries injustices and problems, Yemen is currently experiencing the worlds worst humanitarian crisis currently w 20 million people facing famine and many children starving to death daily, in an already ravaged country unable to deal with covid 19 on top of this.
Half marathon and 5k proceeds will benefit these two organizations directly. $20 flat virtual race entry donation fee, $10 to each cause.

Our virtual race on July 5th has become an amazing opportunity to contribute to three organizations who are all fighting for human rights and equality all over the world! We appreciate all of your participation and are happy to know that we are collectively making the effort to be the change we want to see!
Despite the increasing popularity of half marathons and 5k runs throughout the years, still less than 1% of people in the country have completed a full 13.1 mile half marathon or 5k race. We challenge you and anyone who hasn’t done either of these to use this race as the day to challenge yourself and change that! If you’ve done both, who not go for a new best time.
Sometime before race day on Sunday July 5th, simply follow the google drive link below and add your name and race choice in the column. Once you’ve completed your race, log your time to see listed on the overall finishers board.
We also highly encourage you to send us pics of your run or tag us on Instagram as we will be featuring all racers throughout the day on the page. The great thing about the virtual challenge is the ability to choose wherever you want as your course to be - we’ll be showcasing everyone participating all day so we can all be running as one even in different spots for this one. Thank you so much runners for your participation in our virtual race challenge for a couple very important causes. Follow our Instagram page @Runforitep for updates and on race day! Love to all
