Registration Closes Countdown


Isn’t it iRunic - we are closer together, six feet apart! Join us for the 3rd Annual iRunic Holiday Hero 5K. This virtual race benefits the American Heart Association and honors the men and women that serve our communities each day. Local heroes come to aid of the 805,000 Americans that suffer from a heart attack each year. Their efforts, largely unseen, save countless lives. This year, we want to come together while maintaining our distance and honor our local heroes. We would also like to encourage physical exercise which is essential to reducing the risk of heart disease.  

Last year we kicked off our Holiday Heroes race series that consists of four individual medals that interlock together to create our Unique Holiday Hero Lineup. Simply answer the call for the next four Holiday Hero races and complete your medal lineup.

The third medal of our Holiday Heroes Medal series will be released this year and the remaining one will be released during their corresponding year  (2024). You can purchase the previous years medal in the shop. 

  So, will you answer the call to be a Holiday Hero?

About the American Heart Association

For nearly 100 years, the American Heart Association has been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. The six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association in 1924 would be amazed. From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites more than 33 million volunteers and supporters as well as their more than 3,400 employees.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish the quality of life. The American Heart Association wants to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

What is a virtual run/walk? A virtual run where an individual can run (or walk) from the location of their choice. At your own pace, you can run, jog, walk, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track. Once you're done, you submit your results and share your virtual run photos with us on social media.

Why virtual? We're all practicing safe physical distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus - and this is critical. However, we cannot lose sight of our physical and mental health during this time. A virtual run provides us the ability to exercise safely while also socially interacting with our community (online). While in-person engagement is ideal, online interaction can be a healthy way to reconnect with friends, family, and our running community.

When must I complete my run? For this event you must complete your run from December 5th - January 31, anytime and anywhere.

Is there a specific way to track our time? This virtual run, like most, is based on the honor system. You may download and use a tracking app on your phone, watch, or any fitness device of your choice.

When will I receive my swag bag with my medal/bib/shirt? Shipping the first round of Swag bags with race goodies will start in Mid Dec 2020. The second round of medals will ship the first week of January.
