The Young Life Expeditions Ripple Effect Virtual 5K is a fun and easy way for you to come along side Young Life staff and volunteer leaders around the world as they make every effort to radically impact the lives of teenagers, their families and the communities where they live.
The concept is simple! You run/walk/jog a 5K(3.1miles) anytime during the two week window and post your finishing time here.
Anytime...Anywhere...Any route you choose.
Want to run the entire thing downhill? You can!
Running on a treadmill? That's fine too!
Already entered into another 5K? Bring it!
Running near my house and want to make it a color run? I'll send my kids out to throw paint at you as you run by!
Why wait until after the holidays to start exercising? Get a jump on all those holiday treats AND make a huge difference in the life of kid at the same time?
Registration fee is just $35. You will receive a race day t-shirt and prizes will be awarded to overall winners and age division winners. *To be eligible for prizes you must provide documentation of date and time of run through Nike+, Map My Run or some other GPS enabled device when reporting your finishing time.
