    If you opt for the virtual race, you can participate on your own 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) route any time between Saturday, June 29 - Saturday, July 6 at 5:00 PM.   We will likely have a virtual awards ceremony via ZOOM for all virtual racers later on the evening of July 6.   Details about the virtual awards ceremony are forthcoming.  For more information about the virtual race option, please see 'Virtual Race Details' below.

   * The results and awards for the live race option and the virtual race option will be totally separate!*

  Virtual Race Details:  The virtual race format is based on the honor system, and in order to preserve the competitive integrity of this race and have fun with it, here are the rules:

   1).  Develop or find a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) route of your choosing over any terrain and any level of difficulty.   Hit the flattest area you can find (such as a track), run up the mountains, hike through the woods, loop through your backyard, jog on the beach, whatever you like.  If you would rather participate indoors, you can run/walk on a treadmill for 3.1 miles.

   2).   However and wherever you choose to cover the 5-kilometers, please email me your times (noah.wood1983@gmail.com).   We are doing this on the honor system, so be honest about the time you clock for yourself.  This is a race, so I will be compiling the times and by the end of the day on July 6th, all of the results should be in order.  You never know, you may earn an award!!!!

 3).  Your finish times will not be matched against those at the live race.  The virtual and live races are separate races.  However, both will receive coverage on our community Facebook page (www.facebook.com/daringtheblaze5K)

  4).  You do not have to take a photo of yourself, your timing device, and/or your route, but you are welcome to do so if you would like.  In addition, if want to submit any photos and have it posted on our event's Facebook community page (www.facebook.com/daringtheblaze5K) just let me know.    It's fun to see the variety of routes and photos along the way.

  5).   For updates, results, and photos, please check out our event's Facebook community page at:  www.facebook.com/daringtheblaze5K        Any questions, please contact the race director, Noah Wood:  noah.wood1983@gmail.com  

Course:  Since it's a virtual 5-kilometer race, you can choose a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) route to run, jog, walk, treadmill or hike.   

Awards (virtual race):   Award winners will be getting a virtual award certificate emailed to them based on if they place in the following categories:

       Top 3 overall males and top 3 overall females

       Top overall Masters male and female (age 40 & over)

        Top 3 in the following age groups for males and females:  0-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-and-up

   * Results should be fully available on the Facebook page with awards emailed to award winners by Monday evening, July 8.

 We would be happy to have you join us either in person or remotely for some fun and fitness to support our excellent fire department!    Thank you!
