FAQs

What is a virtual 5K?

A virtual 5K is a race that can be run at any location.

How does a virtual race work?

Participants can run/walk their 5K any time during Homecoming week, anywhere they choose!

Why should I do a virtual race?

The short answer would be because they are cool! If you need more convincing, the top 3 reasons would include:

  1. The chance to add a really cool medal to your collection.
  2. Complete control over your schedule. Complete the race on your own time, at your own venue.
  3. An opportunity to support a great cause. Proceeds from the 5K will benefit the CU Safely Back Fund.

Who can participate?

Everybody and anybody!  There is no age limit and there are no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, crawl, run alone, run in a group, run with your pet, bike, hike, it doesn’t matter. Just get out there and get moving!

Do I need to submit my 5K route and time?

We trust our fellow Panthers — no route or time submission is required. But you can record your time on the printable race certificate and hang it on your fridge, or share it on social media for bragging rights. 

When will I receive my medal?

Medals will be shipped out weekly starting Friday, September 11th. Make sure to register early and guarantee that you’ll have your medal during Homecoming Week.
