SATURDAY & SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2-3, 2021
Join us for the 3rd Annual VIRTUAL Murphy Half Marathon, 10K and 5K!
All proceeds from this event benefit the Kyle Kucauskas Education Foundation
We regret to report that the 2021 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will be VIRTUAL this year due to road construction along our race route. The North Maxwell Creek Road Replacement and Waterline Improvements project is not scheduled to be complete until mid year, pending no further project delays. AMPT Running is proud to offer a VIRTUAL option to those that still want to participate and earn that AWESOME swag! Run it anytime, anywhere. Now through October 3rd.
All virtual participants will receive a 4-inch 3D finisher medal, a gender-specific technical shirt, and a custom race bib. This VIRTUAL event is part of the AMPT Champ 5K & 10K Challenge and can serve as a great training run for your BIG race! Definitely a cause and race swag worth running for!
About the Foundation

In memory of Aaron ‘Kyle’ Kucauskas, a Murphy Police Sergeant who died in March 2013, the educational foundation provides educational assistance to students pursuing careers in the fields of law enforcement and/or criminal justice.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual run event is similar to a traditional running event except the participant completes it entirely on their own. There is not a required location that the event must be completed nor a mandatory time. You choose the race, distance, location, and time. AMPT virtual events create positive motivation by awarding each race participant with a bib, shirt, and finisher medal.
DO I HAVE TO RUN THE VIRTUAL MURPHY HALF MARATHON, 10K & 5K ON OCTOBER 18, 2020?
Nope. Run or walk your race anytime and anywhere; however, RACE RESULTS must be submitted on or before October 3, 2021.
HOW DOES THE VIRTUAL RACE WORK?
Run or walk your race anytime and anywhere. Choose your time and place – trails, streets, neighborhood, treadmill, or wherever. Once you have completed your distance, simply submit your RESULTS, download your Finisher Certificate, and share your photos with everyone on social media. Be sure to use hashtag #VirtualMurphyMiles
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY RESULTS?
Once you complete your distance, simply go to our RESULTS PAGE. Choose your event from the drop-down menu, then enter your VIRTUAL confirmation number and last name. Record your time, upload a screenshot from your running app (optional), and then hit submit. Don’t forget to print your Finisher Certificate and share your photos with everyone on social media. Be sure to use hashtag #VirtualMurphyMiles. VIRTUAL race results for the 2021 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K must be submitted on or before October 3, 2021.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE TO COMPLETE THIS VIRTUAL RACE?
Currently we have no limitations on age. We encourage all ages to take on our challenges and complete them.
DO I HAVE TO “RUN” THE VIRTUAL RACE?
Our challenges all have the same goal and the goal is to get you up and moving. It’s entirely up to you how you complete your race. So, whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood, or walk laps around a track, AMPT virtual races are an ideal way to train for other events and to stay active.
I DO NOT LIVE WITHIN THE UNITED STATES, CAN I STILL REGISTER?
Unfortunately, price includes shipping and handling within the continental US only. We do not ship outside of the continental US.
DOES THIS VIRTUAL RACE OFFER REFUNDS?
Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on registrations. You do have the option to transfer your registration to another person or select to have the full amount donated to the benefiting charity. Please email transfer request to email@example.com.
DO I NEED TO SHOW PROOF THAT I COMPLETED MY VIRTUAL RACE?
While our virtual events rely on the honor system and we can’t force you to participate, we do LOVE seeing your results. You can post your results with photos to our Facebook page or post results to our RESULTS PAGE.
I HAVE A LARGE GROUP THAT WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE, DO YOU OFFER ANY GROUP DISCOUNTS?
