World Refugee Day – Be a part of the movement with a virtual 5K!

Disclaimer: I received free entry to the World Refugee Virtual 5K as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!

From time to time I will hear runners question the value of running a virtual race.  For me, it is typically about running to raise awareness and/or funds for a favorite cause.  I figure if I am healthy enough to run a 5K or more, surely I can put my gift of health and fitness towards helping others, right?  If you feel the same way, consider the World Refugee Day 5K, which is happening around the globe now through June 20th, 2019!

I will be running on June 20th (in Canada), along with many of my fellow BibRave Pros. Join us!  Your registration also includes a donation to the work of American Refugee Committee (ARCRelief.org). According to the website, ARC is able to bring more than 35 years of expertise in services – like health care and sanitation – that are critical to refugee communities.

  1. I am definitely pro virtual racing. I don’t need to worry about logistics on race morning, getting up at the crack of dawn, or not using my own bathroom before the race hehe. You still get cool swag, and it’s for an amazing cause. I can’t wait to run this virtually with ya!

  2. There is definitely something to be said for Virtual races. While I think most of us would love to be able to be there in person for each one, the truth is that there are times in which the logistics of it all just don’t work out for us, so having a virtual option is absolutely great in cases like this.
