*****This race is over, but there are still a few medals left. If you missed the race and wish to purchase a medal, email the Director at****

The Shoe Fanatic Run is a virtual 5k running event, and I'm working to make it unique in many ways. Among other things, there will be an actual race date and start time (May 30th at 9:00am Eastern time USA), a virtual check in and start on race day morning, timekeeping (runners will provide screenshots or pictures of their chosen method of time and distance keeping), and charms (gold, silver or bronze) added to the medals of age group winners. All participants will receive the custom Shoe Fanatic medal, with age group winners receiving their medal with the appropriate color charm. Note, the custom medal is a nice size, nearly 4 inches tall, and the age group winner charms are nearly an inch.

******* If you cannot participate on the scheduled race date/time, you can absolutely still register. Your medal or medals will still be shipped after the race. But, you won't be eligible for age group awards (charms) or to be counted among the "official" times posted after race day.******

Join private Facebook Group for access to race day live-stream virtual check-in and virtual start (Please note, the Facebook group is being used for our other races called the Quarantine Run (they are sold out).

Here is the Facebook Group link:

Race Date and start time: Saturday May 30th, 2020. Virtual check-in via live-stream in the Facebook group above starts at 8:00am Eastern time USA. Virtual race start via Facebook group above live-stream at 9:00am Eastern time USA. The live-stream will be going while you are running, and you will have until 11:00am Eastern time USA to complete your 5k and submit your time. Please note, in fairness to all runners, we need to maintain the 11:00am Eastern time deadline to submit your time in order for it to count toward age group placement.

Timekeeping: Race timing will operate on the honor system. Given the unique nature of each runner's situation, we will accept proof of completed 5k on race day via text prior to 11:00am as stated above (to be provided in pre-race emails). For example: Treadmill runners may text a picture of their treadmill console. Or, phone app users may screenshot their completed run on their phone app and text the picture. Or, runners using a watch may snap a pic of their watch-face and text it in. You may run in any way that is safe, legal, and ethical in your area. This may be on a treadmill, trail, sidewalk, laps around your house, laps inside your house, etc. It is entirely the runner's choice, and each runner is responsible for maintaining their own safety and social distancing and following all their own local laws, directives, regulations, etc.

Pricing includes shipping as quoted by our shipper as of April, 2020, and the registration links are configured for shipping costs within the Continental United States (CONUS) OR Canada only at this time. Please register for your location. Runners outside CONUS OR Canada, please send an email to the email address below, and I will do my best to get shipping prices for you. Please note - Shipping is via USPS. There have been a few rumors in the news about the USPS having some sort of financial issues due to the COVID19 related shutdown. It seems highly unlikely our event's shipping will be affected. BUT, if it is, and changes out of our control must be made to shipping, all runners will be notified via email.

Results will be published in the Facebook Group.
