What Is It? 

The Run Solo Project is a 4-week virtual 5K race series starting April 27th and ending on May 24th. Participants will be asked to run a 5K each week for four weeks. 

At the end of each week, runners can see how they stacked up against other runners across the nation, but most importantly, each team can see how they did against other.

Participants will be charged $50 ($20 of this will go back to your team - see “Let’s Get Down to Business” for more details) for this 4-week series, which will include: 

  • Run Solo Shirt
  • SUPER Cool Unique Custom Handmade Medal (we make these at our house using resin, color, hemp cord, a small wooden circle, and a stamp.) 
  • Online “Results” Each Week

Why Should My Team Get Involved? 

We know your athletic season and fundraising efforts were forced to be cut short, so we wanted to create something to engage the running community, help school teams, and generate some much needed funds to stay afloat until normalcy returns. Alongside our event management company, we also own two specialty running stores in Southern California that were forced to close their doors. With the event industry on pause for an indeterminable amount of time, we have been scrambling to adapt and survive because events made up about 80% of our revenue. So, much like you, we are personally experiencing first-hand how difficult a time like this can be and we all know how running can always make things better. After the idea of the Run Solo Project was created, we thought we should unite runners and support the running community across the nation. 

In addition to this being a fundraising opportunity, Run Solo will offer your team the ability to continue your connection with your athletes and supporters in perhaps a different outlet than normal. It’s also a great way to maintain your athletes’ physical fitness levels and generate accountability. This will be a fun, interactive challenge to keep your athletes and the community engaged while joining in for some healthy competition. 

Who Can Be On My Team? 

Athletes on your school’s team, friends, parents, siblings, community members who are team supporters, and alumni are all welcome to join your team. 

Let’s Get Down to Business 

Remember how we said participants were going to be charged $50? Well for each paying participant that you get to represent your school team*, $20 of that fee will go directly to your team. 

In the early phases of brainstorming ideas, we felt we needed to bring the running community together virtually while still helping out school teams. If a team were to push this idea to their athletes and fellow supporters and get 100 people to sign up for the challenge, that team would get $2,000! We know many fundraising opportunities were lost because of COVID-19 and we believe this could be a fun way to bring in some much needed funds. 

The checks will get issued to your team halfway through the series, so you will receive your portion quickly. 

* During the registration process, runners must select a team/group they would like to represent. Upon signing up below your team will be added to the team list. This will help us determine how many people are on your team and it will also help us aggregate your team’s results.
