We invite you to participate in the 2020 Consolidation Run for FREE to make up for the loss of any cancelled physical event during the pandemic.
If you signed up for a run/walk with 5Kevents.org that was cancelled or switched to a Remote Run due to the Corona Virus we want to make it up to you. We've decided to orchestrate this event and consolidate all physical events that have been canceled into one. This event will be open to everyone that signed up for a prior event. We will allow others to join that were not impacted simply by registering as a normal race.
Why is it called a "Consolidation run"? Throughout the Spring of 2020 we were forced to cancel, postpone or convert many events to Remote Runs (aka Virtual Runs) due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Since we could not physically run as an organized group, we adopted this term to refer to the run/walk we will do as a "make-up" event for all events that were impacted.
EVENT DATES and PLACES: As soon as the 'stay at home' order is lifted we will schedule specific event dates. Below dates are tentative and may be rescheduled pending County approval.
EVENT #1. Will be held at TBA in Racine - DATE: June 27, 2020
EVENT #2. Will be held at TBA in Waterford/Burlington - DATE: June 28, 2020
EVENT #3. Will be held at remotely, Anywhere/Any Place - DATE: June 27 or 28, 2020
NOTE: Due to potential limitations with event participation size, registrations will be limited to a "first come, first serve basis". Make sure you register early to secure your space. Check back for additional details.

Let's start Training!
New to running? DOWNLOAD our ZERO to 5K program - Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place. The Zero to 5K program has been specifically designed to instill a love of running and ends with participating in your first timed 5K See our event directory here: https://5kevents.raceentry.com/
We’re here to help you achieve your goal(s), be it your first 5K, improving your run, or simply offering a resource where you can run with a group that is designed to help each other stay motivated. You should ease into your 5K training plan gradually. In fact, the program we provide is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from a non-runner, getting you to begin running a 5K ( or 3.1 miles) and on a regular basis in just 4 weeks.
It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program, but hold yourself back. Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can. If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out. Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able. Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.
