About This Activity

Brik's Buddies and Team Baby Jayde would like to invite you to participate in #whyirun Virtual 5K.  You can do this run, or walk, anytime anywhere at your convenience.  You can use the treadmill, run outside, your own course, another race, or get your running group together.  Registration ends April 19, 2015, but you have until May 31, 2015, to complete your race.

Active.com requires a city so we chose Oklahoma City, OK, but this race is open to anyone anywhere.  You will complete the race where you want. 

Grab all your friends, get signed up, and get ready for some fun times!

Questions?  Let's see if we can answer some of those.

What is a Virtual Race?

You can register from anywhere and train like you would for any 5k.  The difference is you choose when and where you will race.    Instead of driving to an event, runners mark out a 5K in their own community.  It could be on a trail, on the road, or even on a treadmill, it really doesn’t matter.  You can meet all your friends at a park and run together!!  You simply run your 5K, record your own time.  Feel free to share any pictures.  We would love to see them.  It is simple and tons of FUN!!!!!

Why a virtual 5K?

It is a great way for us to raise money for March of Dimes so moms can have healthy pregnancies and babies get a healthy start.  The research and programs funded by generous donations to March of Dimes are the reason Brik, Jayde and many babies like them are doing so well today.  A virtual race allows people to race where they are.  No matter where you live you can participate and help a great cause!

Do I need to show proof I ran/walked?

No.  We set this race up on the honor system and while we’d love for you to post your pictures and share your time on our facebook event page, it’s not required. 

How are proceeds used?

100% of the proceeds from this walk will benefit March of Dimes March for Babies so they can continue educating and researching. 

When will I get my medal?

Medals will be mailed out after May 2.  Everyone should have them by the end of May.
