RACE DIRECTOR INSTRUCTIONS 5K Walk or Run: Walk or run a 5K indoors or outdoors. Record time for the distance. It's ok if you're slightly over the distance and your result will be adjusted for the race distance. If using a treadmill, set to 1% incline to simulate outdoor conditions. Works on the honor system, but feel free to upload a photo of your wearable, device or equipment (showing time and distance).
You can complete the 5K as many times as you like during the event start and end dates and we'll count your fastest time towards your live standings and final results.

GENERAL INFORMATION What is a virtual 5K?
Athletes have the convenience of walking or running the distance of a 5K on their own schedule anywhere in the world — indoors or outside. The beauty of a virtual 5K is the flexibility.
Who is a virtual 5K for?
Anyone! Whether you’re looking to do your first 5K or have done hundreds, anyone can participate. To be considered a finisher, you simply need to complete the required distance before the end of the event.
Where should I participate?
Wherever you can safely walk or run! Walk or run on a treadmill, track or trail. As long as you can measure your time and distance via a smartwatch, GPS-enabled device or phone, you can enter your time and distance on the Virtual Sports Racing platform.
What equipment do I need?
A GPS-enabled device, phone or smartwatch to record your workout is encouraged, but you do not have to have a tracking device. Basic run gear and access to a treadmill, track or trail is all you really need to participate.
