      READ A BOOK DAY 5K & 10K – TAKE A LOOK, IT’S IN A BOOK -This is a virtual race! Did you know thatNational Read A Book Day is observed annually on September 6th?  This year we want to celebrate with inspiration from Reading Rainbow – Take A Look, It’s In A Book! So go out, read a book and get running! Plus, at least 15% of every registration will go to Books for Africa. “A simple name for an organization with a simple mission. We collect, sort, ship, and distribute books to students of all ages in Africa. Our goal: to end the book famine in Africa.”  *For a limited time get an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE. What: This is a 5K & 10K virtual run (or walk) to encourage others to get out there and READ A BOOK! When: Complete your race any time in September 2018, even better if its September 6. *Medals and bibs will begin shipping out mid-August.  If you sign up after that your medals will ship within 2 to 5 days of signing up. Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because this is our way to celebrate READING! Cost:  The price is $18 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to the    Books for Africa *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked)  from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
