It’s a good cause and enjoyed it.
I can’t believe, while people all around the world are sick and dying, this race promoter tried making a quick buck, originally charging $25 for people to run his remote race with the name “COVID 19.5 k”. Disgusting. Will never run another 5k events race again. He is still trying to make money off merchandise for his “COVID” race.
Was a great way to do something, that keeps us moving.
It’s a good cause and enjoyed it.
I ran early in the morning
Remember, we don't "have to run", we "get to run".
It got me out running/walking with a mission!
Amazing run! Love doing virtual runs with 5kevents
It was great fun, get me going and made me motivated!
The race wasn’t bad. It’s logging in the time that’s confusing and it didn’t match my Apple Watch time.
This process was easy and priced right. I can't wait to get my shirt and medal.
This was a good race competition. However I bought a face mask neck warmer and never got it!!!!
This was my first 5k and I had a great time. My mother and I ran it together. At first I completed this event for my Physical Education class. Now I want to run a 5k at least once a month. We wore our masks and gloves and completed the 5k in our backyard.
