Distance:  Run, walk, hike, or treadmill 13.1 miles or 26.2.  This can be done in one single run/walk/hike or break it up and accumulate your mileage.

Race Benefits:  Our race beneficiary is God's Pantry Food Bank  They play an important role in distributing food to the hungry.  At this challenging time, their resources are stretched yet are needed more than ever, so this is our chance to make a difference.  

Packets:  We plan on doing a drive-thru race packet pick-up at a date in June to be announced.. This may change depending on the state restrictions. If needed, we will be mailing the packets.  Packets will be mailed to anyone living outside of the area or out of state.

Social Sharing:  We have set up a FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE where participants can share their "Big Day" and completion of their virtual race.  While we don't need everyone to submit their actual race time (since there are no awards based on time) we would like everyone to post on this page when they finish their race and share a photo, location and (optional) Garmin/workout data.  We encourage you to tag #creatinghope and #HopeandHeartswiththeArts.  For those who are not on Facebook you may email me at when you complete your Half Marathon/Marathon distance.

Who Can Participant?:  Anyone from anywhere!  We only ask that you follow the CDC Guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic regarding social distancing and the limitation on group gatherings.  This is great way to unite virtually with your corporate group, place of worship, school/classroom, club or team.  It could even serve as a virtual family reunion.

Form a Social Team:  Running and racing is a social activity.  While we can't run or race in large groups for the time being, you can still show your pride by starting or joining an existing Half Marathon Social Team for your virtual runs.  Name your team after your family, company, club, church, running group, or come up with a completely new & creative team name.
