The Arc of Northern Virginia's Team Challenge Virtual 5K Race and Distance Walk
The Arc of Northern Virginia’s Corporate and Community Team Challenge brings together companies and community to raise important funds to sustain and strengthen its vital programs, services, and advocacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year's event goes virtual, and includes more opportunities for individual runners and for walkers to participate and compete as a team.
About the Virtual 5K:
A virtual 5K is a race that you complete where ever you would like. Choose your own route in your neighborhood or favorite park. Then run or jog the distance and record your time to complete the virtual run. You are “competing” against other runners who are also running their own routes and recording their time.
To join in the fun and support the cause, first register for the virtual run. Your race package, including T-shirt, race bib, and participation medal, will be shipped to the address you provide at registration. Then complete your run any time between Friday, September 4 and 12:00 noon on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Post your result to the online race page. Then join us for the LIVE race awards program online Sunday, September 13, 2020.
About the Distance Walk:
A virtual distance walk is one that you complete where ever you would like, and your distance is combined with others on your team, resulting in your total team distance. Walking teams can have up to 10 participants. Each participant chooses one day during the event window that they will do their walk. On this day, the participant records their distance for that one walk. Individual walkers will report their distances, and compiled to determine the final team results. This is meant to be a fun walk, one that is pet, family, wheelchair and even stroller friendly!
Simply register for the distance walk. Each walker will get a participation T-shirt shipped to the address you provide at registration. Then complete your distance walk any time between Friday, September 4 and 12:00 noon on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Post your distance to the online walk page, and join us for the LIVE event awards program online Sunday, September 13, 2020.
