Event Information

Run4Meghan Virtual 5K Race
We hope this 5k will give you a great reason to get out, be safe, and run. The run4meghan 5k is first and foremost a fundraising event. Our friend and former teammate at SUU, Meghan, was diagnosed with cancer this past September. Since October she has had 18 weeks of intense chemotherapy treatment along with a double mastectomy. She is now in the middle of her radiation treatments and will finish up at the end of April. Meghan has had a serious uphill climb over these past 7 months, yet has handled it with such strength. She is an amazing mother to 3 beautiful little girls, incredible wife, and is a great example to all who meet her. We, as her friends, wanted to find a way to support her through her trial. Holding a 5k just made sense, since running is where our relationship started. We love Meghan, and know that this will be a great way to support her. We would love for all to join us in our efforts in bringing some relief to her and her family. #run4meghan5k

What is a Virtual Race?
A Virtual race is one where you can run/walk it from a location of your choosing. For this specific race...you register, receive an awesome t-shirt, run the race distance, upload your finishing time, and feel that runner's high all for a really great cause.

Why a Virtual Race?
It makes racing really convenient. You have a several hour time window to complete the race. No hassle with parking, porta potty lines, and especially right now, big crowds. It is a great way to get out and race off all the stress surrounding the Coronavirus while also being safe. So, in the spirit of social distancing, a virtual 5K is a perfect way to get in that race you've been looking for.
