Runners For Relief: A Virtual 5K Supporting Boston Marathon Bombing VictimsClaim Race (Race Directors Only)
Apr 22, 2013Start time: 2:50 PM
Part of the great legacy of running is that we continue to give back. In that spirit, please participate in the NYCRUNS Virtual 5K To Support Boston Marathon Bombing Victims. If you do really well, you might even win a free entry into every remaining NYCRUNS race this year.
Here’s how it works: Go wherever you want between now and 2:50 PM next Monday (a week to the minute after the two bombs went off) . Run (or walk) your 5K and record your time. At 3PM next Monday we will send all participants instructions on how to report their times. You must submit your time by the end of the day Tuesday. On Wednesday we will announce the winners. The winning times will be determined by a random process.They could be fast or they could be slow. The thing that matters is we will be giving something back as a community.
All proceeds from this virtual 5K will be donated to The One Fund Boston, the purpose of which is to raise money to help those families most affected by the tragic events that unfolded during Monday’s Boston Marathon.
