What is a virtual run?

A race that can take place anywhere and at any time based on what best suits your personal schedule. Participants can run, walk, bike, even swim the race distance wherever they want between the specified race dates. The world is your gym, use it any way you please.

Where do the funds from this virtual run go?

The funds go towards AHMA-PSW Foundation to provide academic and vocational scholarships to low income, at-risk youth and adult residents as a pathway to a brighter future.

How long is a 5k?

A 5k run is about 3.1 miles. Did you know that the average Disney park guest can easily walk 10 miles in a day’s visit?

Whether you choose to run around the neighborhood, walk at home, or walk around the entire office property to avoid your boss at work, you can complete your virtual run wherever you feel comfortable.

You have from September 15 – October 15 to record your time and share your run experience with our followers on Facebook!
