Fall in Love with Running Virtual 5K and Giveaway!

Thanks to everyone who entered the pre-registration giveaway! It is now officially closed and the winner of the $25 Sports Authority gift card is...(drum roll)


Congratulations Elizabeth S!

Now it's time for the main event! "The Fall in Love with Running" Virtual 5K and giveaway! After a long summer of running through the heat and humidity, we are ready to celebrate Fall! It's the most wonderful time of year for runners!

In order to celebrate, I have teamed up with Toni from Running, Loving, Living to host a Fall in Love with Running Virtual 5K and Giveaway. Two hosts means twice the giveaway prizes and twice the fun! Are you in?

You have questions. We have answers.

What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is a running event that you run where you live. There are no parking hassles or long lines at the porta-potty. You decide where you will run 5k (3.1 miles). Afterwards join the other participants online to brag about report your run. You can run the virtual race in your neighborhood, on the treadmill, on your local trails or a track (or wherever else you can dream up). The beauty of a virtual race is that you choose the location. You can learn more by reading a post I wrote about everything you ever wanted to know about virtual racing here.

Who can join?
Anyone who wants to run or walk (skip, crawl or cartwheel) a 5k can join in on the fun on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #FALLinlovevirtual5k and by tagging @runningwithollie and @runninglovingliving. The giveaway is limited to US residents only.

How much does it cost?
It's FREE! We organize these virtual races to motivate runners and walkers, build an online community, to raise awareness of our blogs and to help promote the brands we love. 

When is it? 
You can participate in the virtual race by running or walking a 5k (3.1 miles) anytime between October 11-17. Run it all at once. Break it up over a couple of days. Whatever works for you.
