How do I participate in the virtual 5K?
Sign up is easy! Just register by clicking the link here AND the event link on CCC. After signing up, you can choose whether to run, jog, or walk the 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) anytime throughout the month, from anywhere you can.
We encourage everyone to take pictures of their Run Without Borders experience and share them on social media to help spread awareness about DWB! Don't forget to tag us @uofrdoctorswithoutborders!
IMPORTANT NOTICE! Please be sure to maintain social distancing guidelines (6 feet distance between runners) at all times. On-campus participants are encouraged to follow the on-campus route mapped out below. Off-campus participants are advised to follow their own state and local restrictions about public spaces, trails, or running locations. Please run/jog/walk in a safe neighborhood and consider bringing a friend. Have fun!
What do I do after I finish the race?
When the race period starts, you will be emailed instructions for how to submit your time. You can do that by either responding to the email with the correct format, or by using the website link provided.
After the race is over, we will share the total distance our participants have walked in solidarity with DWB patients!
Are there any prizes?
YES!! Anyone who registers and completes the race will be eligible to win one of five available customized race t-shirts. Winners will be randomly selected and notified at the end of the race. T-shirts will be mailed out (or available for campus pick-up) once the race period has ended.
