May 1, 2021  - July 31, 2021

 

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN?

A virtual run is a run that can be run (walked or rolled) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, walk or bike on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. 

Sign Up for the “Run for Your Life” Virtual Run

Registration for the Virtual Run is currently open.

  • 5K Run – $25.00
  • 10K Run – $35.00

Register Here

Or call the office to register at 248-922-9610.

Once you have signed up for the run, either a 5K or 10K, then decide on the course you want to do, or you can do it on the treadmill. You time yourself. You can even get your friends and/or your kids to run with you too. The run should be completed between May 1, 2022, and July 31, 2022.
