Anyone is invited to participate in this event and all fitness levels are welcome! You don’t need to be a regular runner to do this – you can jog or walk the distances, too. Families and friends as well as individuals are encouraged to participate in the fun – while maintaining proper social distancing, of course. This event is totally FREE to participate in, but registration is encouraged. Runners and walkers will receive a virtual race bib that can be printed and worn during your race.
A virtual race is a race that you can do anywhere, and it does not have a specific starting time or starting place. You can choose the day, time, and even the route you want to take. A virtual fitness event like this can literally be done anywhere.
To be fair to all participants, we ask that you complete one of the event distances in the same outing. If you have a fitness tracking device, such as a FitBit, Apple Watch, or an app on your smartphone, you may be able to see the distance of your walk or run while you are doing it. Another great option is to find a route using MapMyRun online to find your perfect 5K or 12K course. This makes it great for folks that don’t live near the location we hosted this event in the past.
Fort HealthCare is offering an entire race series the fall/winter of 2021-2022, and the Frosty Rock race is just one of the six races. Check out the flyer below for the other race opportunities during this series, and visit the Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Virtual 5k Series registration page.
*New for 2021* If you want/need to do an alternative exercise aside from walking or running, we have calculated the distances for both biking and rowing a 5k race. Please note this in your completion email, and the distances are below:
Participants will have a choice when registering to elect to do the 5K or the 12K as a timed race. If a timed race option is chosen, racers’ times will be documented on a virtual leaderboard after proof of completion and time is submitted. You can record your time using a stopwatch, phone, or personal health tracking device. To be eligible for prizes and for leaderboard recognition for the timed races, participants are encouraged to take a photo of their tracking device’s results and the time completed as email attachments and send them to Wellness.Advisor@forthc.com between November 12 and 14, 2021. No late submissions will be permitted.
