Due to the COVID-19 situation, the 2020 Clarksburg 5k Run, 5k Walk, and Kids Fun Run is now the Clarksburg 5k 2020 Virtual Run!
What is a Virtual Run?
A Virtual Run is an event that participants sign up for and complete on their own (social distancing!) at a time and place of their choosing. It can be on a trail, on the roads, or even on a treadmill. We even saw a recent news report of a runner who trained for a marathon that was cancelled and he completed the marathon on the balcony of his apartment! It is totally up to you!
Why did we switch to a Virtual Run?
We had 3 options - cancel, postpone, or switch to a Virtual Run. Cancelling would be the easy thing to do. Postponing is a challenge because we don't know when things will get back to normal in the relative short term. The fall race calendar is very crowded with local races and will only become more crowded with some spring events rescheduling for the fall. Also, with the current COVID 19 situation, people want something to do and want to know "how can I help". Everyone is impacted by the pandemic, and charities are being hit especially hard. We want to give people the opportunity to lend a hand and support The Dwelling Place, Compassion International, Clarksburg CAN, and Clarksburg Closet. These are great organizations that rely 100% on donations. And we know that pretty soon, cabin fever will set in and we want to give you a reason to get outside and get some exercise!!
