Mark Bancroft Virtual Memorial Run/Walk Race Description

So, what is a virtual event??? A virtual event is a run (or walk) from any location you choose that is 5 Kilometers in length or 3.10686 miles. Essentially, you get to run or walk your own race, at your pace, and time it yourself!! How great is that!!! Please keep in mind that the World Record for a 5K event is 12 minutes, 51 seconds (just as a reminder when reporting your winning times!). Registration is quick and easy. You even have the ability to print out your own race bib that you can wear! You may run or walk your race anytime after you register up to and including Monday, November 23, 2020! After your race is completed, you will need to email your times and the date your ran directly to Rick Marsh at richardmarsh2@aol.com. You are also encouraged to post a photo or video of your finish on the website.

Please note that the pick up location has changed. See below!

We will distribute all medals, shirts, and goody bags on December 5, 2020 in the open parking lot of the former Walmart (or Zayre) store behind the McDonalds off of Galena Road in Aurora at the following times: 

Saturday, December 5, 2020 10am - 12 Noon - Address for your GPS is 2095 W. Galena Blvd, Aurora, IL

This way, you can wear your shirts and medals to at all the Virtual Holiday Parties you will be attending during the Christmas Season! 

If that isn't enough, we are overjoyed to announce that Father Smith from Holy Angels will be participating this year. He's contemplating running/walking Mt. Olivet cemetery on the feast of all souls (Nov 2). There is a little known Catholic tradition of releasing souls from Purgatory through prayer and the usual conditions during the month of November octave so if you choose you may either sponsor him or look to sponsor yourself and join him to receive multiple blessings! 

So what are you waiting for?? Sign up now using the Registration Link below and be counted in this years event. Remember, all profits will be donated following the end of the Race to our charities so the more we can raise, the more we give back! The timing couldn't be better during the season of giving!

Love this virtual stuff. I walked home after dropping my car off at the mechanic this morning and turned it into an opportunity to do this 5K.

Review On:
Rosary 5K Leg

I ran from Rosary High School (sponsored by Dominican Sisters of Springfield) to Holy Angels Church (about 2.2 miles). I circumnavigated the Church counterclockwise (to turn back time & pick up a few seconds) to commemorate the Infinite and eternity before running another 0.9 mile heading back to Rosary. The race timer (me) screwed up. I probably ran 0.5 before I had my iWatch working properly so I docked my race organizational rating. I have no complaints about the course as I picked it. It was mostly flat and fast, except the initial leg south into fierce, chilling wind. I have pics but don't see how to upload.
