Never done a Virtual 5K Run. How does it work? I’ve done a dozen Regular 5Ks & 8Ks this year, but never a virtual one. 

Asked by: BamaNashville
Good Afternoon, Thank you for your question. A Gone For A Run virtual race is a race on your terms, your turf and your pace! Run (or walk) the predetermined distance with friends, family, or yourself whenever and wherever you’d like. Each race package contains a unique race bib and a truly awesome finisher’s medal. Contributing to the cause, a portion of your registration will be donated to a great charity! Each of our fun themed races vary in distance, beginning at 5K (3.1 miles). So, find the right race for you and once you register, we’ll send you your race packet. After you run the race, feel free to post your time on our race recap page! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

How much goes to the humane society?

Asked by: Drew96
Thank you for your question! We commit a minimum of $500 to each charity that is supported through our Virtual Races. Since this is an ongoing race with no set end date, it is our goal to raise as much money as possible for this incredible organization. We appreciate all of the support we've continued to receive from the wonderful runners (and animal lovers) in the Gone for a Run community!

When is the live race for the Run for the Rescue?

Asked by: Kari
Thank you for your question! This race is the newest addition to our Ongoing Virtual Races, which have no set start and end date. Helping animals is a cause that is very close to our hearts (we have at least 2 rescue dogs roaming our offices on any given day!), so we're keeping this race ongoing to do as much as we can to help the Connecticut Humane Society, right here in our home state! We appreciate your support!
