To promote social connection, health and wellness, NAMI Wood County is hosted our second virtual 5K, "the Burn!" Either complete the 3.1 miles/5K all at once or over several runs or walks. Use this as an opportunity to exercise and get some fresh air. This is a great opportunity to raise funds to support those affected by mental illness in Wood County.
Registration for The Burn virtual 5K extends from August 18th to September 25th, 2020.
Individual 5K = $35
Any shirts ordered between August 20th and September 3rd will be shipped between September 14th and September 24th. Any shirts ordered after these dates will be delayed.
Sponsor a Runner or Walker
One of NAMI Wood County’s goals (besides promoting exercise and self-care) for the Burn Virtual 5K is to have participants fund raise from the opening of registration to the end of the race on September 20, 2020.
The top fundraiser will be recognized at the AfterBurn drive-thru style event on September 25, 2020!
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 September 20th!
The top three male and top three female times will be announced at the AfterBurn on September 25, along with the top fundraiser. Winners will receive a commemorative certificate and bragging rights!
