Run Like Health

Virtual Competition for Individuals

Event description

Thank you for registering for Good Shepherd’s Run Like Health Virtual Event! Please join our facebook group for a supportive virtual community where we will announce challenges, prizes, and you will have the chance to interact with other runners.


Instead of a traditional 5k event, you will be challenged to complete more than just a 5k; this year you will build new habits by covering more distance over a longer period of time.  Your participation won’t just help you build the habit of moving your body, but will also support the Good Shepherd Clinic and its mission to provide healthcare for those in need. 


What is a virtual run?

You will complete the miles you signed up for (25, 50, or 75)  wherever and  whenever you want in the month of July.  You can run one mile every day over 25 days, walk a couple of miles every other day - however you want.   Once you finish the mileage you chose, you’ll get your finisher medal, t-shirt, bib, water bottle, and beer! 


How do I track my miles?

First, you will need a method to track each walk/run.  The easiest way to do this is with an app on your phone. MapMyRun, Runkeeper, and Strava are some commonly used apps.


After you have completed a run, if you would like to compete on a leaderboard submit your score here on competitioncorner.net and a screenshot of your running app to runlikehealth2020@gmail.com. 


How long do I have to complete my miles?

From July 1 until July 31, 2020.


I’m not a runner/jogger/speed demon, I’m a walker; is this “race” for me?

YES!  While we will have some prizes for fastest times, this is YOUR race to complete on your terms.  We will have challenges and prizes for achievements not related to how fast you can move, including for runners who bring in the most referrals! 


Running and walking by myself is boring and I miss the traditional 5K crowd.  How does a virtual event replace that experience?


We miss the energy of the traditional 5k race too.  With our virtual event, we have created a private Facebook group just for Run Like Health participants.  On this page we encourage you to share your miles; pics you take on your outings;  ask questions and share frustrations! 


The Facebook page is where we will announce challenges, prizes, and highlight participant activities!  Join our provate event group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/607365646805266/


I’m not on Facebook, can I still participate?

Of course. We will track the miles you submit to competitioncorner.net and you can pick up finisher prizes when you complete the miles (or we will send them to you if you’re from out of town).


What is the Good Shepherd Clinic?

Good Shepherd Clinic provides consistent, quality medical and dental services for the vulnerable members in our community. Our medical and dental providers, mainly volunteers, offer care at no cost. Read more about our clinic at goodshepherdokc.org.
