GREAT COMMUNITY FUND RUN

A Production of Eclectic Edge Racing

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15 - SUNDAY, APRIL 19


VIRTUAL RACE DETAILS

The Great Community Fund Run encourages and celebrates your health journey, as you continue working toward your personal fitness goals with the support of the running community. Participating in a virtual race is a great way to motivate each other and hold each other accountable. This also encourages you to get active and enjoy time outdoors, while still respecting social distancing.


Run (or walk) your chosen distance, at your own pace, whenever and wherever you’d like.  You can choose to be competitive with your friends or yourself while not traveling to a race. Encourage your friends to sign up, agree on a time to run and then share your success with one another in the official Facebook group!


RUN OR WALK FOR A CAUSE

Help to raise money for a great cause! When you sign up, choose from one of the following charities that your run will benefit: Food For Lane County, American Red Cross, Direct Relief, United Way of Lane County or Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon & Southwest Washington. Proceeds from this event will go directly to your chosen beneficiary.


LOCATION

Anywhere! Trail, road, cross country style – your choice. Preferably outdoors, but your treadmill works, too.


TIME

Complete your chosen distance of a half marathon, 10K or 5K anytime between Wednesday, April 15 and Sunday, April 19

HOW IT WORKS


1. REGISTER FOR YOUR VIRTUAL RACE

Sign up online -- choose your distance and the cause you want to support with your run. Each race package contains a unique race bib, a custom event shirt and a super cool finisher’s medal. You are contributing to a cause with a portion of your registration donated to a great charity! Click the link below to register online.


2. RACE PACKET

Your bib, shirt and medal will be shipped to you after you sign up. You do not have to wait for your bib to arrive to complete your race. Join the official Facebook group, where you can post about your goals, share your progress and upload photos of you and your race swag! The entry includes a shirt while supplies last.


3. RUN

Complete your run on your own time, at your own pace and wherever you like. Snap a few photos and then share on social media using #virtuallyrunningtogether to connect with fellow participants! We want to build our sense of community, positivity and togetherness in a time when we cannot come together in person at a typical running event.


4. SEND YOUR RESULTS

Email your finish time to William@EclecticEdgeRacing.com

Shortly after, you will have access to your printable finisher certificate!


5. TAKE PHOTOS WITH YOUR MEDAL & SHARE YOUR RACE WITH US

We would love to hear about your race. Join the Facebook Event to add this event to your calendar & see who else is coming. Once you're registered, join the official Facebook Group to share your photos/videos/awesomeness and connect with fellow participants! Be sure to use #virtuallyrunningtogether when you post, so that we can all stay connected!
