What: We hope you’ll join us for our 10th annual STRIVE For 5K! We have made the difficult decision to switch the race to virtual only in 2021. Here's a reminder for how a virtual 5k works... All participants have the ability to make their own 5K course- whether that’s walking in your neighborhood, running a certain trail or previous race course, or using a treadmill at your home or the gym, and more!

Our virtual race takes place anytime that is convenient for you Friday, September 17th-Sunday, September 19th.
