2022 Girls With Guts Virtual 5K
September 3, 2022
Join us for the 2022 Girls With Guts Virtual 5K Fundraiser!
What is a virtual race?
A virtual race can be done anywhere anytime. You can walk, run, jog, roller skate, skateboard, bike, or crabwalk outside, indoors, or on a treadmill if you really want to get crazy. The idea is that we’re all supporting GWG on the same date and with the same goals!
How does a virtual 5k work?
You register for the race using the link below and complete the 5k distance on September 3, 2022 however you want. There is no start or end time. We don’t track time for this 5k because the event is more about our community than it is a competition, but you can certainly track your time if you want. You can connect with other ladies in your area to start teams via our Facebook forum!
Have fun inviting people to join your team, and start fundraising!
Who can participate?
Absolutely anyone! If you’re a Girl With Guts, you love a Girl With Guts, if you just like thinking about guts – we encourage you to join! We encourage participants of all ages, genders, and ability levels.
If you can’t currently run, walk, skateboard, or crabwalk, you can still participate! Register for the event and help us fundraise! You’ll still receive a racing packet.
Can I walk? Do I have to do the 5K all at once?
Participants are encouraged to complete their race all at once, but we understand that not everyone is able to complete our minimum 5k distance in one outing. The Girls With Guts Virtual 5K is less about your race results and more about bringing our community together to accomplish mutual goals and have a successful fundraiser.
Is this a fundraiser?
Yes! Much like other walks or runs, we’re encouraging participants to set fundraising goals and spread the word to meet those goals. Although it is not a requirement, our goal is to have each participant raise $200.
Our goal is to raise $15,000 to continue to be able to sponsor our future Newbie Retreats!
Are there incentives for fundraising?
All participants will receive a race day swag bag. The highest individual fundraiser will receive complimentary registration to an annual retreat!
(Fundraiser must fundraise a minimum of $500 by 9/3. Winner will be announced on 9/4. Retreat registration valued at $350, valid until 2025.)
Can I sponsor the Virtual 5K?
Absolutely! You can check out our Sponsorship Packet here.
What do I get for registering?
All 5K participants will get a hat, a race bib, some other race/walk goodies and online training information. Domestic shipping in the United States is included in your registration fee.
How do I register for the 5K?
Registration is now closed for this year, but you can still help us reach our goal by sharing our fundraising page!
