WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
The Great Pup-Kin is a 5k (3.2 mile) race that you run on your own schedule, and at a location of your choice… time yourself… and, send us your results.
DO I HAVE TO BE A RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
No! You choose an activity that you enjoy, whether it be running, walking, wheelchair rolling, bicycle, treadmill, eliptical or any other activity where you can track your distance.
WHERE AND WHEN DO I PARTICIPATE?
Since this is a virtual race, it is all up to you! Pick any date and time between August 28th and October 30th that suits YOUR schedule. Make a plan on what activity you want to enjoy and plan a route that is the distance of 5 kilometers (3.2 miles). You can do this from the comfort of your own home, gym or backyard, or you might want to plan an outing to a nearby park or area that you enjoy. And, don’t forget to record the total time it took you to complete your 5k distance.
WHAT IF I CAN’T DO 5K ALL AT ONE TIME?
No problem! You can break up the distance into multiple outings if you want. Just add your times together to get an overall time for completing your 5k distance.
WHAT DOES MY REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDE?
Every participant will receive a custom T-shirt for the event and a nice big shiny medal. We will send you your swag bag within 2-weeks of receiving your registration. Proceeds from this event benefit the UDS Service Dogs!
WHAT DO I DO WHEN I FINISH MY RACE?
Return to this page and upload your timed results above. You can check back here during the first week of November when we will post the ranked results.
SHARE YOUR PICTURES WITH US… We would LOVE for you to share a picture(s) of you completing your 5k! You can upload them to Facebook or Instagram using #UDSv5k or you can email them to LoriB@udservices.org.
