About This Activity

*Due to COVID-19, CVCC had chosen to adminster classes virtually and therefore the race will be run virtually as well.

The CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5K is a race open to anyone who wishes to participate. The course will be on campus and will contain some hills, pavement, sidewalks, and parts on grass so be prepared for changing terrain. The race will start at 9:00am in the lower parking lot. Parking will be available in the upper parking lots. Race will be held rain or shine. Registrations will be donated to two causes including the American Lung Association. Packet pick up will include Planet Fitness goodies, a Lynchburg Hillcats general admission ticket (only the first 50 registrants guaranteed), and other fun stuff! Registration on event day will be cash or check only. Checks can be made to CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club. Race prices will increase March 1st so sign up soon!

Do I need to be a fit runner to do this?

Oh my goodness, NO. You can run, walk, crawl or cartwheel if you wish. There is a two hour cutoff time, but that will be more than enough time!


What is included with my CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k registration?

Each registrant will receive a race day goodie bag, post race grub, knowing part of your registration will goes directly to the American Lung Association, and sponsor information. To inquire about Sponsorship openings, email


Is The CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k for a charity or a non-profit organization?

The proceeds from the race will be divided between two organizations. Registrations will benefit the American Lung Association, a voluntary health organization whose mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. Proceeds will also go to CVCC’s Respiratory Therapy Club and give students the opportunity to participate in off campus conferences.


Can I run with a jogging stroller and my kids?

YES! Strollers are allowed but, part of the race is off pavement in grass and on sidewalks so be warned.


Can I run with my dog?

Sorry, NO DOGS are allowed at our races


Is there an age limit for younger runners?

No age limits! If they can cover (running, jogging, walking) the 3 miles of CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k course in 2 hours, they can absolutely have fun! **Remember though, every participant will need to register.


Is there a packet pick up for the event? How does all that work?

Packet pick up/Race Check-in will be starting at 8am the day of the race.


Can spectators attend?

Absolutely! The can cheer on you and the other runners.


Is The CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k timed?

The CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k will be a gun time event based on the start/finish line managed manually. We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a more accurate finish time.


Are there refunds?

Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the check in, pick up your CVCC Respiratory Therapy Club 5k gear, and say hi to us!
