and to improve the lives of patients and caregivers.

 

What is a 5K YOUR WAY event?

You’ll choose the location and date — a holiday or a random weekday - any time that works for you — and decide if you want to organize your 5K as a solo run or neighborhood stroll with friends (please social distance).
 
Do I need to time myself/my squad?
Due to the range of activity types and athletic abilities, you are not required to time yourself. However, you will have the option to upload your time and track your mileage. See below.
 
What do I get with my virtual registration?
  • Official Event T-Shirt
  • Participant Center/Dashboard and Personal Fundraising Page
When should I expect my Run for the Rose packet?
We are looking at having a drive-thru packet pick-up after December 6. If this isn't feasible, we will mail shirts and runner medals (if applicable) after the race.
 
Does my entire team need to run on the same day/together?
No, your team members do not need to run on the same day or in the same place.
 
Where can I do my virtual Run for the Rose event?
That's entirely up to YOU! Complete your 5K on your own time and wherever you’d like, whether it’s on a treadmill, running track, park, or city streets — you pick!
 
Where can I share my virtual event photos?
Join the Virtual Run for the Rose/DMRF Facebook page! This is where you can post updates leading up to your event, chat with other virtual squads, and share your event day photos. Use the hashtag #RFTRYOURWAY and tag the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation Facebook page. See below for more instructions.
