CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK) – Since 2007, Tristate Racer has hosted hundreds of races across West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, and this weekend held the first-ever, “social-distance virtual 5k”.
This race is completed alone, the racer chooses the course and himself/herself and then submit the time online on an honor system.
The 5k must be completed this weekend, March 28th-29th. To signup, you must register online for a $20 entry fee.
The money raised goes to support area food banks during this difficult time. Racers will be mailed a t-shirt and those with the best times have the chance to win a Fitbit Flex 2 and door prizes.
13 News Reporter Haley Kosik participated at Sissonville High School’s track.
Many other virtual 5ks are planned for the future.
