About This Activity

Come out and take part in a whole new 5k experience!
RunWage is excited to present the first annual RunWage Run For the Money 5K to help you kick start 2020 as your healthiest and most transformational year ever.
RunWage is a mobile app that was built and developed here in WV with the aim of growing the running and fitness community. This race is the first of it's kind, bringing the virtual world into the real world!

How it works: You have the option to use your entry fee as your "bet" to beat your own personal record, with the incentive of getting your entry fee back! Example: Your $35 registration fee is bet to beat your time of 25:00. If you finish below 25:00, you just won your $35 back! (Note: you have the option to get $50 sent via PayPal or donate it to the Charleston, WV Ronald McDonald House). You are not obligated to take part in the "bet" part of the 5k, but as long as you enter the race, you have the option!
