Wellington Parks & Recreation To Host Virtual 5K

Whether you are a beginner looking to complete your first 5K, an experienced distance runner, or somewhere in-between, you are invited to participate in the Village of Wellington’s first-ever Social Distance Virtual 5K.

What is a virtual 5K and how does it work? A virtual 5K is a race that can be completed from anywhere. Run, walk, jog or treadmill to complete the distance on your own time (within the race period) and at your own pace.

Complete your distance anytime between Saturday, Aug. 22 and Sunday, Sept. 13. It can be done anywhere! Pick your favorite trail, sidewalk or treadmill. Complete the run at your own pace; run, walk, jog or use a treadmill; track your run; and submit your results to receive a finisher medal.

Registration opened Monday, Aug. 3 and continues through Friday, Aug. 21. Participation is free and open to all, but spaces are limited, so register early. Registered participants (within the United States) who complete the run and submit their results will receive a finisher medal.

Wellington thanks Humana and Fit2Run Wellington for their partnership in this event.
