VIRTUAL 5K RUN TO 2021
December 21, 2020 to February 21, 2021
The Defense Association of New York is proud to announce the DANY Virtual 5k Run to 2021. Let’s leave 2020 behind and get 2021 off to a good start! We miss seeing all of our members and sponsors, and until that can safely happen again, we want to bring everyone together virtually for a couple of good causes – The Food Bank for New York City and The DANY Scholarship Fund. You will have two months to complete a 5 kilometer (about 3.10 miles) run or walk. You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside, as long as you complete the distance. You do not have to finish in one run or walk, or even in one day. You just have to finish the total distance between December 31, 2020 and February 21, 2021. You can choose to be in one of two divisions: (1) the Competitive Division; or (2) the Participation Division.
If you choose the Competitive Division, you submit your time, date of completion and age. The results from the Competitive Division will be posted after the race is completed.
If you choose the Participation Division, you only need to submit the date of completion. The list of those who entered the Participation Division will also be posted to our website after the race is completed.
This race is open to anyone – DANY members, their family members, our sponsors, our sponsors’ family members, or anyone else who wants to sign up and get some exercise! Invite your family and friends! The race is open to all ages.
Just make sure that you don’t run on any unsafe roads or areas that have been closed off to the public. Practice social distancing and any other requirements set forth by any local, state or federal guidelines. This is a virtual run only – so please do not gather as a crowd in any one location at the same time.**
If you want to submit any photographs of you or your family members participating in the 5k Run to 2021, we would love to receive them and will post them to our website after the race is over.
All participants will receive a shirt after the race. Proceeds from the race will benefit The Food Bank for New York City and the DANY Scholarship Fund. If you don’t want to participate in the run or walk, but still want to make a donation to The Food Bank for New York City or the DANY Scholarship Fund , you can do that from the registration page too.
We look forward to seeing you all virtually and cannot wait to see you again in person in 2021! Don’t forget to register for this by January 15, 2021. After January 15, 2021, registration will be closed.
And a big thank you to our race sponsors, we could not do this without you!
