Our race is still VIRTUAL for 2021!! That means you can run, walk or hike a 5K (3.1 miles) from anywhere, any town, on your own, at your own pace anytime between SATURDAY, JUNE 19th to SATURDAY, JUNE 26, 2021! Every participant who completes will get a finisher certificate and a special DCD5K facemask with the Seeds of Hope for Haiti and race logo imprinted on the side.
NEW THIS YEAR - an opportunity for all to participate in a 30 Day Virtual Challenge
If you are looking for more than a "one and done" road race or walkathon, or if you are not a competitive runner, consider entering a 30 Day Challenge instead! With the 30 Day Fitness Challenge, you can set a goal for yourself such as "Run a 5K a day for 30 days" or "Swim 30 laps a day for 30 Days". If that's not your thing, then consider the 30Day Activity Challenge. You can choose from several activities/endeavors. Read, garden, paint, knit, crochet, yoga, Pilates, tai chi, cross fit, weight lift, or do calisthenics for 30 days and log the minutes/hours spent doing your favorite activities. Both challenges allow you to set a custom goal for yourself and follow your progress; receiving milestone badges to encourage you along the way.
REGISTRATION OPENS ON MAY 1, 2o21 for these events! Stay tuned to our Facebook page, Instagram and your inbox for updates
