Social distancing may mean that we can't be together, but we can run alone, together!
Welcome to the FIRST EVER LIVE VIRTUAL run/walk! So, what is a LIVE VIRTUAL 5K run/walk?
A virtual run/walk is typically done on your own time and at a place of your own choosing. So whether you hop on a treadmill, walk or run around your neighborhood or local trail, you complete the distance on your own terms. However, we've put our own spin on the traditional virtual event to bring you a first of its kind event! The Wizard Run LIVE Virtual 5K will be held on Saturday, May 2 at 10:00a.m. CST. where we will set up the Wizard Run finish line complete with our infamous 9.5 ft spider and smoke machine. Our most adored wizard emcee and our fabulous deejay with the propriety Wizard Run soundtrack will be there to kick off the event LIVE on Facebook and Instagram. We encourage you to join us on your own walk or run. We will stay with you on your run/walk for 1 hour or longer if needed, encouraging you to keep going, entertaining you in a way only Bob Brown with Boca Enterprises can, and congratulating you when you finish! We are committed to bringing as much of the real life experience to you as we can in these unprecedented times! #wizardsrunningalonetogether
