MAY 1, 2021

Our virtual 5K is a 3.12 mile walk, run, crawl, etc. with friends of Young Life in Northern California and Nevada who just happen to live all over the country. You pick your own starting line and even the best time of day for you to participate. Since there is no official race course, there are no crowds (yay social distancing)! 

Here's how to do it:

1. Register online (you are here...good job!)

2. Your racing bib will be emailed to you with your race confirmation. Print it off and pin it to yourself (carefully).

3. Grab a water bottle and head outside. 

4. Run 5 kilometers (3.12 miles) anywhere.  Literally...walk out your 1.56 back OR go to your favorite running spot and start there! Run with family, run with your dog, run with friends (practicing good social distancing and all that of course), run with your friend's dog...the possibilities are endless. 

5. Post a picture and your time on an Instagram post or story and tag: #yl21runnorcalnevada
