Geek Pride Day is celebrated each year on May 25! The date was chosen because its the date that the movie Star Wars was released. Let’s face it, we all are geeks in our own way and we all have things that we “GEEK OUT” on. Perhaps you geek out on reading or science or solving mathematical equations, or you geek out on trying new recipes, learning different cultures or learning survival skills. One thing is for sure, there are millions of us out there that GEEK OUT on running, jogging and/or walking. So it’s time to GET YOUR GEEK ON and celebrate Geek Day by completing a virtual 5K or 10K and we’ll send you an awesome GEEK DAY MEDAL!
This year’s medal has a quote from Sheldon Cooper, “Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”
Along with celebrating all GEEKS worldwide, we will also be donating 15% of every registration to PENCILS OF PROMISE, an incredible organization that builds schools for children around the world, to give more kids an opportunity to gain an education. We’re excited to do our part and help build a new school!
*FOR A LIMITED YOU CAN PURCHASE YOUR OFFICIAL T-SHIRT AND/OR HOODIE HERE.
What: This is a 5K and 10K virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the GEEK in all of us.
When: Complete your race any time in 2019!
*Medals and bibs will ship out every 2 to 5 days.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Why: Because this is our way of celebrating Geek Pride Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: PENCILS OF PROMISE.
Cost: The price is $20 (now only $10) and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to PENCILS OF PROMISE. *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. Run on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
