Runners For Relief: A Virtual 5K Supporting Boston Marathon Bombing VictimsClaim Race (Race Directors Only)

April 22, 2013

Start time: 2:50 PM


Address: 700 Boylston Street Boston, MA

Like many of you, we are incredibly moved and disturbed by the events that happened at the finish line in Boston yesterday. This has directly affected our community; it happened in our home.

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.
