Community Virtual 5k
The Everett Special Education PTSA is hosting our 2nd annual Virtual 5k event for all families, students, staff and community members to participate in this Winter. Proceeds will go to support all Everett School District PTA/PTSA/Cascade - Bruin Community Parents (BCP). This is a week long event from December 6th - 12th, 2021 to allow for everyone's schedule.
How to support your School's PTA/PTSA/BCP
Anyone and everyone who registers, will have a week to run, walk, roll, hop, skip or jump to the 5k distance. Registrants will pick their own course anywhere they want. The Virtual 5k can be completed all at one time or broken up into multiple days.
When you register for the event, each participant will be required to select a school PTA/PTSA/BCP. Then 50% of the proceeds from registrants who selected your school will go directly to your school's PTA/PTSA/BCP. The other 50% goes to the Everett Special Education PTSA Grant Fund, which supports teacher grants for special education classrooms throughout our School District.
What is a virtual run?
When we can't come together as a community, in person, safely, we go for virtual runs. A virtual run is a running/walking race or event that allows to safely participate at home. We will mail all of your swag, and you run on your own time on your preferred home course.
What is the difference between the All In Participant and the 5K Supporter?
The All In 5k Participant registration fee covers a Finishers Medal, Racing Bib and postage for these items to be mailed directly to you.
Registration for the All In Participant has been extended and is now open until November 27th, 2021. HOWEVER only the first 400 registrants are guaranteed to get their swag (medal and bibs) PRIOR to race week.
We have opened a 2nd registration period for ALL in 5k Participant level that is open from Sunday Nov 28 - Friday Dec 3rd...there is NO guarantee that your race packet will arrive prior to race week, but you will still receive a custom medal and running bib.
The 5k Supporter level, does NOT include a Finishers Medal or Racing Bib. Registration for this level is available all the way up to race week.
For either registration level, after the race you can come back and enter your results to get a Digital Finishers Certificate.
When will I receive my swag in the mail?
The All in 5k Participant - For the first 400 people who register by November 26th, we will be mailing your finishers medal and running bib to you the week prior to the event. If you register after November 26th and we still have medals available, they will arrive during race week or shortly after.
Why should I participate?
This event is to help encourage a healthy lifestyle, family engagement, to get outdoors, and as a community come to support each other.
Would you like to receive a digital Finishers Certificate?
Once you have completed your event, go back to our race event site, find the "Results" button and add your individual times. A digital certificate will be emailed to you. Remember, since you run your own course, you set where the finish line is located. Many people use smart phones, watches with GPS to tell them how far they have gone. You can also google online your course and figure out your distance before you go...just make sure to time yourself!
Should you follow along on social media?
Of course you should! On our Facebook and Instagram pages we will be sharing updates and information as we get closer to race week. Plus this is a great way to tag us in your own photos when participating.
