A Virtual Race by Eclectic Edge Racing

THURSDAY, JUNE 18 - SUNDAY, JUNE 21


VIRTUAL RACE DETAILS

Let's welcome in summer with the Summer Solstice Stroll, a run/walk event to raise funds to help support local youth and family-focused nonprofit organizations. Participating in a virtual race is a great way to motivate and encourage one another, building our sense of community, while we cannot come together at a typical running event. 

The Summer Solstice Stroll celebrates your health journey, as you continue working toward your personal fitness goals with community support. It also inspires you to keep moving + enjoy time outdoors, while still respecting physical distancing.

Help promote Fitness for the Future as we reach out to the youth, parents and educators in our lives and invite them to stroll with us! Join the School Team Competition or the Graduating Seniors Challenge for extra fun and camaraderie. We invite the Graduating Class of 2020 to unite and commemorate your graduation with this event. Encourage your friends to sign up with you as a team, agree on a time to run and then share your success with one another in the official Summer Solstice Stroll Facebook Group. Prioritize your health by staying active and participating in an event that directly supports some incredible organizations.
