You can join the 5x5K FOR GOOD wherever you live. Our Live Virtual Race option is not your typical virtual run where you’re completely on your own.
We will have five scheduled 5Ks where 5x5K FOR GOOD participants all over the country can run or walk together at the same time, with a running coach keeping you motivated and connected, all from the comfort of your own neighborhood or treadmill.
How It Works
Our Live Virtual Race is powered by the Charge Running app. A dedicated running coach will keep you updated on your current pace, average pace, cadence, and distance, all in real-time, all while you run along with other runners and walkers from all around the country, together in one race, all at the same time.
With in-app chat, you will be able to communicate via text to the coaches, as well as others who are in the run with you.
The races will take place at 5:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m., 8:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. and each live broadcast will last an hour. If you can’t make any of the five scheduled 5Ks, you will be able to access all five races on-demand in the Charge app after they have taken place.
When you register, you will receive a 2-week free trial to the Charge Running app where you can take advantage of more than 20 live classes a day as well as a vast on-demand library of classes.
BE A DO GOODer
You can choose to support a charity partner with your participation and fundraise. We will create a fundraising webpage for you (which you can personalize with your own photo and story) and give you tools to help you raise money. There’s no commitment, no requirement to raise a certain amount of money, so there is nothing to lose – and everything to gain.
