Run4Dreams: Virtual 5k
For Help Fill a Dream Foundation

Run4Dreams is Virtual 5k Race, where the net proceeds from registration will be donated to Help Fill a Dream Foundation.  

A Virtual Race  is a race that you can run, walk or jog at any time anywhere. You can choose to do it with friends or by yourself, on the trails or on the road, on the treadmill or at another local race that's happening in your hometown. 

You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Then, submit your Garmin, Strava or another running app results. You can also submit your results from a local race. 

For example, if you are running the Seattle Half Marathon, you can submit the link to your official results and we will be able to see your 5k split time. 

As long as you submit your 5k time between the time that you signed up for the race and April 15, 2018, you are entered. Yes, this means that you can submit your Island Race Series time as well.

INCLUDED with your registration is a FREE pair of Run4Dreams Endur Athletic Socks. There are also great draw prizes to be won!

CASH PRIZES: Top Male & Female each get $75 cash. Most creative run submission gets $50 Cash.

The first Run4Dreams was a small event and raised $400 for Help Fill a Dream Foundation. You can see the RESULTS HERE.

Note: there are no refunds on registrations; participants are responsible for provinding accurate shipping information for draw prizes and swag; we are not responsible for lost shipments due to participant error.
