Going the “Social Distance”
To promote social connection, health and wellness, NAMI Wood County is hosted the first every PreBurn Virtual 5K! Either complete the 3.1 miles/5K all at once or over several runs or walks. Use this as an opportunity to exercise ant get some fresh air. We encourage you follow CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. This is also a great opportunity to raise funds to support those affected by mental illness in Wood County.
Registration for the PreBurn virtual 5K extends from April 21, 2020 to June 5th. There are two types of registrations available:
- Individual 5K = $35
- Five Person Group Rate = $145 (18% discount!)
Shirts will be delivered between May 22 and 29, 2020. Shirts will be delayed for registrations after May 15th.
Sponsor a Runner or Walker
One of NAMI Wood County’s goals (besides promoting exercise and self-care) for the PreBurn Virtual 5K is to have participants fund raise from the opening of registration to the end of the race on June 12, 2020.
On the donation form, make sure to include the name of the runner or walker you are sponsoring in the comments section.
The top fundraiser will be recognized!
Make sure to join the Facebook group once you register and follow our “NAMI Quarantunes” playlist on Spotify for some energizing tunes!
After you register, you should receive an automated email with additional instructions on how to stay connected and report your results.
Be sure to send us and your fellow runners messages of encouragement in the Facebook group. We’re all in this together!
Tracking Your Race and Submitting Your Results
You may complete the 5K all at once, or over the entire length of the race period. But to win an award for top three male or female, the 5K must be run all at once. Submitting your results is optional.
You can use your app of choice to track your time and submit a screen shot of your finish time when you are done. This will allow you to see how your results compare to others. Results will be available on our website.
Results are due June 12!
The top three male and top three female times will be announced on our social media on June 19, along with the top fundraiser. Winners will receive a commemorative certificate and bragging rights!
