Introducing: The Chasing Daylight Virtual 5K Series!

This is a series of four 5K races taking place over the course of the year.  You can sign up for any of the races individually, or sign up for the whole series!

The first three races are Virtual 5K's. This means that on the date of the race you run the 5K on your own, and you choose the time and place. Send it to us and that's your time!

The last race is a free in-person 5K to culminate the whole series.  If you are unable to make that race, you can still run and will still receive your medal if you are a series runner!

What it costs:  $25 for the series. $7 for an individual race.

What you get: 

  • A medal designed by a local Rochester runner for each race*
  • Access to Chasing Daylight Virtual 5K Facebook group to share motivation, encouragement, and add your own experiences
  • Professionally timed 5K for the last race in the series**

What are you paying for? The cost covers the awesome customized medal you will receive for each race and the shipping expense. If you decide not to have them shipped to you, you can pick your medal up at the store and receive $5 in store credit.

*Medal for last race only available to registrants for entire series.

**Registration will open on 3/17/2019 for the free 5K only option.
