Description

Join us VIRTUALLY for this year’s Market Street Mission 5K Race for Recovery! In an effort to keep our community safe and healthy, this year you can participate and virtually “attend” our annual 5K from ANYWHERE while joining the fun right on our Facebook Event page! Although we may be miles or states apart, we can gather our friends, family, and coworkers together in a virtual effort to celebrate recovery, independence and community, support one another, the Market Street Mission and those it serves, and get fit along the way! Your support is especially important this year as the Mission remains open and committed to serving those who are homeless, hungry and hurting in our community. 

Our virtual event experience will bring you not only the chance to run or walk a 5K on 4th of July weekend and report your time for the results, but a virtual event venue on Facebook where we will host many interactive activities including raffle giveaways, prizes, challenges, special participant focus days, and more during event week (June 29 - July 5). We encourage you to share your goals and accomplishments, selfies with our souvenir bibs and tech tees, and follow event updates. We’ll even be hosting a LIVE kick-off on Friday July 3rd at 9 a.m. RSVP GOING on our Facebook event and stay connected! 

Why do we race THIS year? 
  • To come together as an online community to race and enjoy the 4th of July holiday. 
  • To support the programs of the Market Street Mission and those they serve.
  • To promote a healthy drug-free lifestyle for those in recovery.
  • To remember a loved one who lost his/her battle to addiction. 
You can support Market Street Mission in a number of ways!
  • Register to participate!
  • Consider a donation above your registration fee (donations are tax deductible).
  • Fundraise by asking family & friends to sponsor your run or walk with a donation.
  • Become a sponsor and help make the race possible! Email Eric for more information - eric.jonesinvt@icloud.com.
Proceeds from the 5K benefit Market Street Mission's Life Change Recovery Program. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides all our services free of charge to those in need. We are not subsidized by government funding. To learn more about Market Street Mission, visit www.marketstreet.org.
How Our Virtual Event Works

Step 1: Register for the 5K Race and share the event with your family and friends (near and far)! Register by June 16, 2020 to ensure you can pick-up your souvenir tech tee before the event kick-off on July 3rd! (For registrations after June 16, we will attempt to have your shirt available prior to race weekend, but cannot guarantee this.)

Step 2: Print and wear your personalized bib # (more info below). 

Step 3: Join us online during event week for special virtual activities and daily giveaways!

Step 4: Run/walk the distance on your own at anytime during the race window (July 3 - July 5 at 8pm). Submit your results using the instructions below, and then download and share your finisher certificate! If you're not ready to do the full 5K at one time, split it up across a few days. 

Facebook Event

Since we can't meet in person, our Facebook Event Page will act as our Virtual Event Venue in 2020. This is where we can interact, share our goals and results, post pictures of our bibs, shirts, and our run, and get new information about the race! AND this is where you can be part of our Live Kick-Off.

Click here to go the Facebook Event Page and then click GOING! Be sure to share your pictures, tag us on Facebook or Instagram and use hashtag #msm5k!

Get Your Personalized Bib #

Click the icon below to download the attached PDF.

PDF

Participants in live fitness events wear bib #s like the one above during the event. We hope you will print yours and wear it on your 5K Race for Recovery run or walk (or even as you accumulate Miles for the Mission). It’s one extra way for us all to be connected through our shared Virtual experience!  As a bonus, you'll spread the word about Market Street Mission further than ever before as you run or walk through your neighborhood. 

1) To access and print your personalized bib # through your RunSignUp registration, follow these steps:

  • Log-in to RunSignUp.com and go to your profile by clicking the circle in the upper right corner. Scroll down to Upcoming Events and locate our event.
  • Click on the last option for "View Digital Bib"
  • Voila, your bib will appear! There is a prominent Print button above the bib image. You can also use the Print button to save your bib as a pdf if you'd like to share it on social media or save it for a future time. 

2) Alternatively, you can print a blank bib pdf here (without your name and assigned #) and decorate with sharpie, pen, crayons, bedazzler, etc! Add your name, team name, a message of hope or support, or a drawing...anything you feel inspired to include! 

3) No printer? Use any paper you have and create your own bib #!

Once your bib # is ready to go, you can cut out your bib, poke holes through the 4 corners, and attach to your event day top. Usually, bib #s are attached to a participant’s shirt with safety pins through the 4 corner pin holes. Pins will be available when you pick-up your souvenir event tech tee. You can get creative and use anything you have at home though such as decorative pins, string, badge holders, or tape!
