What is a Virtual Run/Walk Event?

  • A virtual run/walk event is an event that can be run or walked from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.

How does a Virtual Run/Walk Event actually work?

  • Participants register on-line, choose your starting line, run/walk your chosen route, and upload your time on the race page!

Does the event take place on a specific date?

  • No, you have the freedom to complete your Cardinals 5K anytime and almost anywhere! Plenty of time to find that perfect race day! Please maintain proper social distancing while running. We have posted a few of our favorite courses on the Registration page.

Does the event have suggested courses?

  • You can run the official Cardinals 5K course, a few 5K courses in the St. Louis area are suggested on the race registration page, USATF certified 5K courses or create your own course.

I have family and friends who live out of town, can they participate in the Cardinals 5K Run?

  • Absolutely! Simply have them register, choose a 5K (3.1mile) course where they live, run/walk, and upload their time! The Cardinals 5K Run can be a fun competition with neighbors, family and friends, even those living elsewhere.
  • Remember, this doesn’t mean running together. Social Distancing saves lives.
