About this Event

Join us on March 28, 2021 for the Unity Virtual “Spring Fling” 5K/1K Run, Walk, and Roll.

You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time yourself. You can run alone or with a small group of family/friends.

In the Unity Virtual “Spring Fling” 5K/1K Run, Walk, and Roll event, everyone is a winner. T-shirts are included with your registration, and will be available for pick-up for local participants or mailed to you if you are out of the area.

Description

Join a ZOOM group warm-up to kick off the event on March 28, 2021 at 1:00 p.m., then start your run at 1:30 p.m.—or anytime between Sunday, March 28 through Monday, March 29, 2021! You can run, jog, walk, or roll your 5K or 1K anywhere you like: on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track.

Get your friends and family involved! We will have support, activities, and advice for both novice and experienced runners, and fun ways to include your kids and pets. Invite your friends and family from anywhere to join and celebrate health, fitness, and the return of spring, sunshine, and flowers (socially distanced) together.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please let us know!

Trouble buying tickets?

We’ve been notified that some people are having issues completing the purchase.

So far, we have determined that the problem is caused by your browser’s pop-up blocker.

(“Browser” is the program you use to browse the web. Common browsers included Google’s Chrome, Microsoft’s Edge, Mozilla’s Firefox, and Apple’s Safari.)

If we identify other issues with the purchase process, we’ll update this section with more help.

Solutions

Disabling your browser’s pop-up blocker

Obviously, you don’t want to disable your pop-up blocker completely. So, you have two options:

  • Turn off pop-up blocking temporarily, purchase your tickets, then turn it back on; or
  • Turn off pop-up blocking only for Eventbrite

Fortunately, all modern browsers let you tweak security settings on a per-website basis. Disabling the pop-up blocker only for Eventbrite will allow you to complete your purchase—while still keeping you safe on the rest of the web.

Here are the instructions for doing this in each major browser:

Chrome

Edge

  • edge://settings/content/popups

Firefox

Safari
