About This Activity

Run a 5K in your kitchen! We've never seen times like this before, so why not run a 5K in a way that you've never seen before? Introducing our newest challenge...

Help support our food bank partners across the country by accepting the Kitchen 5K Challenge. Register to run by May 10th then run 5K in your kitchen (or surrounding rooms) and send in your result before May 10th.

Here's how it works...

1. Select your route. This could be a circle around your kitchen table or island, a figure-8 in different rooms of your house, anything you choose. <-

2. Count how many steps are in your selected route.

3. Calculate how many laps you need to take to complete the 5K. Simply divide 6,975 (the average amount of steps a person takes in a 5K) by your answer to step 2, and that is the number of laps needed to complete the 5K. You can also measure how many feet your route is and divide that number by the total number number of feet in a 5K (16404 feet).

4. Submit your results to get added to the National leader board and print out your finisher's certificate!

You may select a royal blue or heather army green as your commemorative shirt (included with registration). Add on the finisher medal for $9 extra!
