We are excited to launch Willow Adventure's inaugural run. It will be a virtual run that we are calling "Weight To Run”. Choose a race distance, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or all 3, then choose the amount of weight to carry (minimum of 5 lbs maximum of 50 lbs). This can be a weighted vest, a backpack filled with weights or household items, dumbbells or kettlebells, ruck sack or anything you can carry.  Then go and run anywhere and anytime you want! Each pound of weight you run with (both body weight and carried weight) counts as a 10 second deduction in your overall time!

You'll have 4 weeks from the day you register to run your chosen race(s). After you complete your run submit your total time to the Run Signup Page (instructions will be given to each participant upon registering) and add your total weight to the comment section.You can perform this run as many times as you would like, resubmitting your new time if you improved from previous attempts throughout the entire 4 weeks.

Finishing just once earns you your swag, finish in the top 3 of your age group earns you Awards/Prizes. 

Finisher Photos
 We ask that everyone takes their own “Finisher Photo” showing you and your weight at the end of your run, then share it on
Instagram and/or Facebook for a chance at a special prize using the following tags: @willowadventure_ny @willowrunning @ocrlibrarian315

Before your run, grab your weight that you are carrying with you and weigh yourself. Your total
weight (body weight and extra weight carried) should be noted and submitted in the comments section when you upload your time. For every pound of weight you run with we will take 10 seconds off your overall time!


A 200-pound man runs the 5k race with a 20 pound pack in 38 minutes and 44 seconds.
220 (total weight) x 10 = 2,200 seconds or 36:42
36:42- 38:44 = 2:02
This man’s total time would be 2:02 for a 5k!
Don’t worry… we will take care of the math!

Please email results to Marty at to ensure accuracy!

5k Finishers will receive a pair of Willow Running Socks
10k Finishers will receive a Willow Running Buff
Half Marathon Finishers will receive a Willow Adventure Belt
Finishers of all 3 runs in 4-week timeframe will receive all above prizes as well as a Willow Adventure Pint Glass

Prizes for top male and female performers as well as age group winners will be announced soon.
