Join us for the virtual 2021 Race for Warmth!
While we will miss seeing your smiling faces in person, we have plenty of fun things planned for this virtual event.
The race will take place from January 29-31 so you have all weekend to run/walk your way to your own finish line. Registration for this event is $30 and all funds go directly to Operation Warm Heart.
A virtual run is just like running a race with thousands of other people… just not all at the same place! Come race weekend, you pick your own start time and finish line. You can run, walk, bike around your block, choose a route in your neighborhood, choose a route on our website or even complete the race on your treadmill.
Just like a usual Race for Warmth event, you get a packet with a shirt, a bib number, a participation medal (new this year), race swag, and more. And even though we’re not together in person, we still want to see pictures and videos of you running, walking and anything else Race for Warmth Related!
In lieu of prizes being awarded to racers with the fastest times, we’ll be doing raffle drawings leading up to and through the weekend of the race. Participants will receive an email with more details about raffle drawings, how to enter, and how to connect with fellow Race for Warmth participants from afar.
