We are saddened by the cancellation of this year’s Lewisburg Chocolate Festival and HospiceCare is very fortunate to be part of this festival each year, however with the ongoing situation we still want to have a successful fundraiser for Hospice.  This event will be a “first” for our local area and hope it will encourage all runners and walkers  to participate, have fun and donate to Hospice.  We are looking forward to getting back with the festival in 2021.

FAQs

What exactly is a Virtual Run? 
Since we are unable to run together, a Virtual Run is a Run/Walk at your own location/time (on the roads, treadmill, trails, etc).  Everything is up to you and you can choose your own course.

What distances are we offering? 
Our event is a 10k (6.2 miles).  Everyone is welcome to participate! So get your friends together (virtually of course); get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.  Take selfies and submit so everyone can see how much fun you had.

What are the important dates to keep in mind?
You have all of June to run your distance. Registration ends June 30th; however you have until July 6th to submit your time.  You will receive instructions on how to submit results soon and please be on the lookout as well for the Facebook Event  on HospiceCare’s FB Page where you can stay connected.

Once registration closes we will be placing the final orders for the finisher medals and T-shirts purchased.
Once the items arrive we will:
1. Ship it to you if you live far away or simply aren’t able to do one of our no contact pickups. 
2. Be hosting several no contact pickups at various locations. We will keep those who selected this option up to date once those details are decided.

What swag items will I receive by participating?
All participants will receive a finisher medal and a special gift from one of our local vendors with their registration. We will also be offering t-shirts to purchase for an additional fee - just for this event.  You can also print a “virtual bib” for the event and submit a picture to us once you have received your swag items.

How will I get my swag items?
During registration you will be asked if you would be interested in a no-contact pickup. If you are able, we would love to have you come to one of these no-contact pickups (dates/locations TBD) to help us save funds on shipping (and thus raise more money for HospiceCare and The Peyton Hospice House). 

However, if this is something you are unable to do (for example, if you live in Kentucky) then we will be glad to mail out your swag! 

Please keep in mind that this event lasts the entire month of June. Our plan is to order our swag once registration closes and have it all arrive early July. Once it arrives we will coordinate the pickups and the shipments for those that want it delivered. Again, we will keep you all updated on this process so you know when your swag will arrive!

What if I’m already registered online?
Your non-refundable pre-registration online will automatically transfer over to the virtual registration and you will be all set.  If you do not wish to participate in the virtual race (which we hope you will) please let us know and we will remove your registration. We thank you for your donation and support to Hospice and hope to see you next year.

What if I want to order a T-shirt but I’ve already pre-registered?
Simple! Claim the registration as yours (you might have to make an account on RunSignUp) and go to your Profile. Then under the race hit "Manage Registration".
