The T1D 5K for a Cure Virtual 5K event is a fundraiser for JDRF to research a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
Where ever you live, where ever you train, you probably know someone living with Type 1 Diabetes... Together we can fund a cure to this disease.
The best part about this virtual event is that you don't have to travel and you can fit YOUR run into YOUR schedule whenever you prefer to run... first thing in the morning... last part of the day... and you have a whole week to get your run in.
Our virtual race starts at 5am on October 19th... and you have until 10pm on the 26th to finish your 5K.
Run, walk, crawl, skip (if you skip I want pictures)
Don't want to run or walk or skip or crawl you can still support our event by purchasing an awesome amazing fabulous shirt.... or just donate... all donations go DIRECTLY to JDRF to find a cure!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
No way! Anyone and Everyone is welcomed to participate!
Is there a deadline to register and get a tshirt?
YES!!!!! Tshirts are only available to those who register BEFORE September 1st 2016. This is to keep costs as low as possible to enable us to get the most money possible to JDRF!
What exactly is a "Virtual 5K"... do I just run it in my mind???
Well... not exactly. A Virtual 5K is a race that you can run at any location.
You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or participate in another race. You can run your race at your pace wherever you like. There is not an official start or finish line... just get out and run...
We'd love it if you post a picture to our facebook page so we can flood social media with people getting out there and doing their thing for a cure!
How do I get my shirt.
Please indicate your preferred shirts size by selecting the appropriate regisrtation ticket. Shirts are available in Unisex, youth and Junior sizes (which are a ladies fitted tee and tend to run small)
Shirts will be mailed out to participants about a week before the event (early October!) or can be picked up locally in Hampstead, NC.
