We Run The Parks - Racine County Race Description

"WE RUN THE PARKS" is a FREE self guided run or walk program designed to get people outdoors and exercising.  

THE CHALLENGE: We've partnered with local communities to put together a unique REMOTE RUNNERS® experience. Discover your community parks by walking or running all the trails in Racine County listed below by October 31, 2020. Take your time and enjoy the journey. This unique REMOTE RUNNERS® experience is designed to get people outdoors and moving.

While we are all currently urged to self-isolate, running or walking outdoors (especially solo) is still encouraged for your fitness and mental well-being. For most this will not be a race but an opportunity to explore the local parks in our community.

Entry into the challenge is FREE! You will have the option to purchase commemorative shirts, medals and event bibs if desired.

STEP 3: Run, Walk, Bike the Routes! (Not all routes allow bike traffic)

At the end of the run, you'll have the option in the app to “Share with Virtual Race,” where you’ll select “We Run the Parks – Racine County” This will seamlessly add your run or runs to the leader-board on our race website. These results will get verified and weighted based on your performance.

STEP 5: Celebrate! We will be sending out promotions and specials as this program evolves that are exclusive to our participants who purchase a T-shirt. If the sponsor sees you wearing your event shirt (optional with registration), you will receive exclusive specials. No Shirt, No Service, whoops... we mean, No Specials.

Note: Actively running or walking the full distance of any of these routes is not mandatory, as you may submit any distance, but the leaderboard may boost entries if they run the full suggested route, if they run more than one of the suggested routes, if they run hillier routes, etc. The leaderboard may also compensate for differences in distance, to equate a 2 mile distance with a 5 mile distance, etc.

  • There is no designated start time or date to complete your run/walk. Run or walk at your pace and your time. The event ends October 31, 2020.

 ARE YOU NEW TO RUNNING? Join our Zero to 5K Training Program

Zero to 5K

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.
