2019 Girls With Guts Virtual 5K


For detailed event information, check out our website!

Join us for Girls With Guts’ annual Virtual 5K!

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race can be done anywhere anytime. You can walk, run, jog, roller skate, skateboard, bike, or crabwalk outside, indoors, or on a treadmill if you really want to get crazy. The idea is that we’re all supporting GWG on the same date and with the same goals!

How does a virtual 5k work?

You register for the race using the link below and complete the 5k distance on September 7-8, 2019 however you want. This year we are opening it up for an entire weekend so you have more time to walk! There is no start or end time. We don’t track time for this 5k because the event is more about our community than it is a competition, but you can certainly track your time if you want. Search for Girls With Guts on Charity Miles! You can connect with other ladies in your area to start teams via our Facebook forum!

Who can participate?

Absolutely anyone! If you’re a Girl With Guts, you love a Girl With Guts, if you just like thinking about guts - we encourage you to join! We encourage participants of all ages, genders, and ability levels.

If you can’t currently run, walk, skateboard, or crabwalk, you can still participate! Register for the event and help us fundraise! You’ll still receive a racing packet.

Can I walk?

Participants are encouraged to complete their race all at once, but we understand that not everyone is able to complete our minimum 5k distance in one outing. The Girls With Guts Virtual 5K is less about your race results and more about bringing our community together to accomplish mutual goals and have a successful fundraiser.

Is this a fundraiser?

Yes! Much like other walks or runs, we're encouraging participants to set fundraising goals and spread the word to meet those goals. Although it is not a requirement, our goal is to have each participant raise $200. All participants who hit at least $200 will receive exclusive an GWG merch item! This year, our goal is to raise $15,000 to continue to be able to sponsor our future Newbie Retreats! So, if you haven’t had the chance to attend an in-person retreat before, this is for you.

Are there incentives for fundraising?

We have incentives for those who reach and exceed the fundraising goal!

Tier 1 (at least $2000) - Future Retreat registration (approx $300 value) AND your travel will be covered!

Tier 2 (at least $1000) - Future Retreat registration (approx $300 value).

Tier 3 (at least $500) - 50% off Future Retreat registration (approx $150 value).
