What is the New Year’s Eve 5K Virtual Run?


The New Year’s Eve 5K Virtual Run is one way to earn your right to party for New Year’s Eve. Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year, and we’re all ready to move on to 2021 and better times ahead. Running is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, so as we look ahead to the new year making running a part of life is a good thing to do. With the New Year’s Eve 5K Virtual Run you can get started on making running a part of your 2021 and have a great time doing it. Run (or walk) the distance you pick wherever you want. We’ll ship your swag bag including the finisher medal, personalized bib, performance long-sleeve 1/4 zip pullover and buff to you.

Where can I run/walk?


Anywhere! This is your virtual run, and we want you to complete it wherever and whenever you want. Sidewalks, paths, treadmill--make this race your own!


Want to make this a family run or walk with a stroller or your dog? Now’s the chance!


What items are included with the New Year’s Eve 5K Virtual Run?


Your swag bag includes a stylish, performance 1/4 zip jacket with a New Year’s Eve 5K 2020/21 logo, a finisher’s medal, New Year’s Eve 5K branded runner’s buff, personalized race bib and more.


When do I need to complete my run?


Beginning on December 26th, 2020, you can log your results and complete other post-race experience actions, like download your personalized Finisher’s Certificate, see how you rank on the leaderboard of other participants, and upload your photos. To download a Finisher’s Certificate, we ask that you complete your run by January 3rd, 2021.


Do I need to submit results to get a medal?


Your medal will be mailed to you with your packet, but if you’d like to download a finisher’s certificate with your results, you can go here to enter your information: https://enmotive.com/users/login.


How do I track my distance and time?


For the Virtual Run, we accept results on the honor system, but the most accurate tracking is typically via a device with GPS tracking.


When will my packet ship?


Race packets will begin shipping the week of December 14th, 2020.  Participants should be registered by December 15th, 2020 to ensure that they received their packet by New Year’s Eve, pending any unforeseen delays. For participants registering after December 15th, 2020, best efforts will be made to have your packet arrive by New Year’s Eve.  Note that you will be able to upload your results and photos during the run period (December 26 – January 3) regardless if you have received your race packet.

Do you ship internationally?


The New Year’s Eve 5K Virtual Run is currently available only for addresses within the contiguous United States. At this time, we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, or anywhere internationally.


What do I do if my goodie bag doesn’t fit?


Can I swap it? We do not offer any size exchanges post packet shipment. All changes to sizes need to be made prior to confirming registration.
