As a result of the the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we are now offering a Virtual option at our Charlotte 5k and at our Lowcountry 5k. Read out Covid-19 statement by clicking HERE. The following information is for the 5k events scheduled throughout 2020. Here are a few FAQ’s we thought may be helpful for you if, like us, this is your first experience with a virtual 5k run/walk.
What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
A virtual event is a race that you do on your own time and on your own course. You choose the location and if you would like to run, walk, or wheel. Done this way, you have the fun of completing the race without the crowds, which is ideal for us right now. Track your distance and time with a smartphone app and get a great, fun race packet.
What is the Date Range for Completion?
The date range to complete the 5k:
Charlotte is May 15, 2020 through May 31, 2020
Lowcountry is September 26, 2020 through October 31, 2020
Can I Log My Results?
Results are based on the honor system and do not require proof of event completion. Logging your results on the website will allow you to see how you rank among other participants, but it is not required.
What Comes With My Virtual Registration?
It really depends on which level you sign up for. See the images below.
When will I Receive My Swag?
We will begin mailing swag bags the week of May 16, 2020 for Charlotte.
We will begin mailing swag the week of Sept 26, 2020 for the Lowcountry 5k.
For the Lowcountry, two dates to notate:
August 2, 2020 - cutoff to be guaranteed a medal
August 30, 2020 - cutoff to be guaranteed a t-shirt
Can I Still Have a Team?
YES! Absolutely. There is no ban from getting out and walking or running if you keep your distance from others. There are coveted awards for the largest team and now, your team can participate from anywhere in the world. You can choose to participate as a team on a certain day or throughout the allotted time frame.
Can I Still Have a Fundraising Team?
YES! Fundraising is an intricate part of the event and helps Teal Diva with community programming. There are coveted awards for highest fundraising teams and you will be making an impact in the local community.
Here is a look at our Fundraising incentives this year:
Where Does the Money I Fundraise Go?
We have 3 programs we are fundraising for. Click the following link to read more about each: https://www.tealdiva.org/survivorsupport
For the Lowcountry, we are fundraising to expand our port shirt program and increase survivor support.
We won’t technically be together. But we for sure do not want to miss out on the FUN! We encourage you to take A LOT of PHOTOS from your walk or run and share them with us. We want to see you with your swag. Let us celebrate with you as you take photos and videos of you presenting one another with your finishers medal. Wear your race bibs. This is an accomplishment and a wonderful opportunity to raise more awareness through social sharing. Use #tealdiva5k when posting.
