Description

This year's race is more important than ever. Without the support of the community many adults with disabilities will not have access to receive an education and the tools that allows them the opportunity to thrive within our community. Livitup is asking for your support!  Please join us for the 40th Annual Elvis 5K (Virtual)  event or the popular Elvis 100 challenge (Virtual) event benefitting Livitup, Inc. For the 2021 Elvis 100 Challenge, we had 136 entrants logging in 13,353 miles. Challenge yourself to  log 100 miles (accumulating your mileage... over 10 weeks),.

About the Elvis 100 Challenge: The Elvis 100 challenge is a virtual run/walk anywhere taking you along the route from the birth place of Elvis Presley in Tupelo to Graceland in Memphis. Participants will log their mileage in RunSignUp and receive the   Elvis 100 Challenge shirt and finisher medal upon completion. As you log your miles, you will be able to track your and your friends progress along the route. See virtual course map below.  We want to encourage you to get your friends to join you in the Elvis 100 challenge. For every (3) friends you refer that use your personal registration link to register, you'll get a refund of $15 credited back to the card you used to register for the race. Grab a friend or (3) to help motivate, support and even challenge each other!

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the race, please contact Kelly Burrow at kburrow@livitupinc.org or 901-761-4277

Elvis 5K Virtual FAQ

Q: Do I have to be in a certain city/state to do this event?
A: Anyone can do the VIRTUAL Elvis 5K wherever you are, on your time between Saturday July 30th and Saturday August 13th!  This is great way for families and friends to stay active together, even if you don't live close to each other.  
 
Q: Do I have to run or can I walk?
A: You can run, walk, runwalk ... as long as you are purposefully moving and logging miles, it counts. IF YOU ARE COMPETING IN THE WALKING EVENT, YOU MUST ONLY WALK, NO RUNNING.
 
Q: Do I have to complete the 5K Virtual distance at one time?
A: Yes, since this is a "timed" event, you will need to complete the full  5k during one activity ... not multiple combined activities.
 
Q: Do I have to put in my miles outside?
A: Preferably you will be able to go outside so you can use our Live GPS tracking app, RaceJoy (see RaceJoy How To below). but if you need to complete your miles inside (on a treadmill, at the gym, etc.) that will be possible with the alternate reporting option of submitting your time on the results page beginning Saturday July 30th. 
 
Q: How do I record my miles/time?
A: The easiest and best way will be to utilize the RaceJoy app (see below)  ... you simply hit start on the app and it will register your time in results when you complete the 5K distance.  But, if you are unable to carry your phone; will be in a location with poor cell service; or need to complete your miles inside or on a treadmill, then there will be alternate ways to report your time.  You can upload directly to the RunSignUp system.  Just go to the Results Tab (click here)  on this webpage and choose "Submit Virtual Results". Virtual results will be presented in a format similar to in person results, but for recognition only.
