DIRTY WOOKIE 10K - EPISODE IV: SOLO... A 2020 Story
The 4th Annual Dirty Wookie 10K/ 5K will be held VIRTUALLY for 2020!
The Dirty Wookie race event was created to showcase the Dirty Wookie -Imperial Brown Ale Beer- from The Brewer's Cabinet, a local Reno brewery.
Due to Covid-19, we are unable to host this event in person, but we are excited to bring you a virtual race and celebrate Halloween week and all things WOOKIE!
2020 Reg Opening Soon!
DATE & LOCATION:
This is a VIRTUAL RACE! Complete your miles anywhere, anytime between October 24-31, 2020.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE:
A virtual race is a race you do on your own, wherever you are. You can run, walk, or hike and complete either a 5K or a 10K distance (whichever distance you registered for). After you finish your race, you can submit your results online. All we ask is that you complete your race between October 24-31 for your results to count!
$5 of every registration fee goes directly to CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada!
We have a limited number of slots available for this event to help keep the event costs at a minimum. We will likely sell-out!
INCLUDED IN REGISTRATION:
Virtual race bib upon signing up that you can print out and wear during your run!
Virtual goodie bag that includes discounts to local Reno small businesses!
Online results on RunSignUp.
Sense of accomplishment!
Finisher's medal & sticker mailed to you! Shipping of the finisher's medal & sticker is already included in your entry fee.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY MEDAL & STICKER:
Our plan is to have your finisher's medal and sticker sent to you before race week so you can proudly wear your medal after you finish your virtual race. PLEASE BE AWARE... due to circumstances beyond our control, there could be major shipping delays due to COVID-19 and changes in the USPS. We will do our best to ensure that everything ships before race week.
Results will be based on the honor system. You will be able to submit your own results through our platform on RunSignUp. You will receive an email during race week that will give you a link for submitting results. It is very simple! All you need to enter is your time and distance.
Shipping is included in your registration fee. As of right now, we are not offering international shipping.
For the safety of yourself and your community, we please ask that you follow local, state, and federal regulations in regard to social distancing and Covid-19.
There are NO refunds for this virtual event. NO exceptions.
MEMORIES OF HONOR:
We are thrilled to work with Memories of Honor for our events. Memories of Honor is a free service that allows you to run in the memory of a fallen soldier. They are doing virtual bibs for 2020. Click the link below, print your bib for free, and run in memory of a fallen soldier. The family of that soldier will be notified that someone is running in their honor! It's a great way to support families of fallen soldiers, and keep their memory alive through running. Link coming soon!
