A “REMOTE RUNNER” is an individual that participates in one of our events at an alternate location. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race, at your pace, anywhere in the world. 

 

5Kevents.org’s REMOTE RUNNERS program is a great way to stay fit and active all year round, run for a good cause and get awesome medals for your participation!

Join our FACEBOOK & TWITTER groups dedicated to our REMOTE RUNNERS!

Our races come with no time pressure – your pace is individual to you and you will earn your medal for completing whatever your speed. You can even walk our races without the fear of crowds at the beginning or at the point in your race when you really could do with that 2 second pause. Each of our races have dates to complete allowing lots of flexibility to complete your challenge, see our website for the race dates and deadline at www.5Kevents.org

TEAMS, FITNESS CLUBS, RUNNING CLUBS

5Kevents.org’s REMOTE RUNNERS program is designed for running clubs and groups who wish to orchestrate running events in their communities without the expense that larger events must absorb. 

 

DILEMMA: XYZ Running club of 25 people wants to orchestrate a St.. Pat’s Day 5K® but simply does not have enough people to do a full blown commercial event. 

 

SOLUTION: Join the REMOTE RUNNERS program. We provide the T-shirts, Race Bibs, Finisher Medals and Award Pins in advance of your group run. Then give these to your participants upon completion. 

How does the TEAM Program work?

STEP 1: Designate a team captain 

STEP 2: Team Captain signs up for desired event and creates a team.

STEP 3: Encourage your Fitness Club, Group or Organization to sign up. Send your group a link to the event web page. From there they go to REGISTRATION> then select the “REMOTE RUNNERS” Category.  During the registration just follow the prompts. If you accidently select the wrong team let us know and we will correct.

STEP 5: 1 week before the event we will ship the shirts, race bibs and medals to the team captain for distribution. 

STEP 6: Run Your event and submit individual times via this website.

STEP 6: Distribute award pins to the top 3 overall Male and female participants.

FAQ’s

 

HOW DO I RACE IN MY OWN TIME?  

You can complete your race on your own around your home, at the gym on a treadmill or even with a group of running buddies – essentially you can compete anywhere in the world! Our races come with no time pressure – your pace is individual to you and you will earn your medal for completing whatever your speed. You can even walk our races without the fear of crowds at the beginning or at the point in your race when you really could do with that 2 second pause. Each of our races have dates to complete allowing lots of flexibility to complete your challenge, see our website for the race dates and deadline at www.5Kevents.org 

 

WHAT ABOUT TIMING & RESULTS 

 

No official timing necessary for Remote Runners (TM), but you must return back to our website with your proof. We accept many forms of proof, as long as we can see you have completed the distance and the time it takes you, we’re happy.

Examples include Garmin photos, app screenshots, fitbit stats, program times etc.

 

All REMOTE DIVISION results submitted will be included on our Race Results Page and for the specific event participated in.  

 

DIVISION AWARD MEDALS will be mailed to the top 3 Male and Females within one week after event closes. REMOTE DIVISION is excluded from the TOP OVERALL Male And Female Age Divisions as they are not professionally timed. Team and Group events (at their discretion) may also recognize OVERALL WINNERS and are provided medals for that purpose, but is exclusive to each unique group.
