Virtual Runner Option:

We are offering a virtual runner option for this event! A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked)  from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  The first 20 registered virtual runners will be mailed a t-shirt.

A mere $177 pays for a Malawian girl to attend one year of school, including tuition, room and board, textbooks, transportation, school uniform, and learning supplies. That means for every 10 virtual runners we can support a girl for a full year!

Virtual Runner Pricing: $17.70
