Our First 5K

So my best friend and I have really enjoyed the 5K’s we’ve done since we did The Color Run.  We did one other that was an actual in person event (through a corn maze, I’ll write about it later) but then we also have done several other virtual races together, including the Zombies Run Virtual 5K that I’ll also post a review of soon.

Because we’ve been having so much fun, we decided we kind of wanted to get in on this too, and start our own virtual event.  But since we’re new at it, we wanted to start small this year to build up for a bigger event next year.

Which is how the 50K5K Pledge was born.  The event this year is just being run through Facebook, so check out the link for the full information.  But the basics are it’s a virtual 5K run with virtual winner’s goodies, and we’re encouraging participants to donate to National Novel Writing Month, one of our favorite events that promotes writing and creativity.  Anybody that participates this year and submits a time will be automatically notified when we do the full event next year so they can get a jump start on sign-ups, and will get a 10% off code for the race too.

So if you’re into virtual 5Ks, do this race with us and support a great cause, have fun, and help us get started on some even bigger and better events in the future!
