Mon September 21 - Sat September 26

Join your fellow Cardinals in a virtual 5K for Homecoming & Family Week, September 21-26, 2020. While we cannot all come together in Westerville for homecoming weekend this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to put together something that could still unify Otterbein alumni, family and friends both near and far! Thus, the idea for a virtual race was born.

Once you sign up, you can complete your 5K on your own anywhere that you like. All registrants will receive a race medal and have the option to choose a t-shirt, as well. Choose your favorite bike path route, trail route, neighborhood route, or otherwise and have some fun! After completion, you can return to this race page (under the "Results" tab) to submit results. We are also encouraging participants to share race photos on social media by tagging Otterbein University and #OtterbeinHCFW #Virtual5K. This is a great way to show your Otterbein pride and to challenge your Otterbein friends & family! Thanks for your support and GO CARDS!

Race t-shirts are available for all registrants through September 10.

Packet Pickup and Shipping Options

Participants will receive a race t-shirt (if a t-shirt is selected within the registration process) and a race medal.
