Happy Hug Day 5K & 10K
*This is a virtual race!
Did you know that National Hug Day is January 21?  We are celebrating with our first annual Happy Hug Day 5K & 10K! Get out there and race, and maybe even give out some free hugs! 
Plus, January is Glaucoma Awareness Month and we will be donating at least 15% of every registration to the Glaucoma Research Foundation,  a great organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for glaucoma. 
What: This is a 5K or 10K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate Hug Day! You choose the distance you want to complete.
When: Complete your race any time in January 2019, if you can complete it on January 21 (Hug Day), even better.  
*Medals and bibs will ship out mid-December. After that they will ship out every 2 to 5 days.
Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Why:  To celebrate HUGS!
Cost:  The price is $20 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Glaucoma Research Foundation.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Run on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
