Description

April 10 update: As you know, our county and state has been in a shelter-in-place order since mid-March and it looks like this will be extended through much of May. We have been continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the recommendations and updates given by the County of Santa Clara and its Health Service Agency. The health and safety of our participants is our number one priority. We had high hopes that things might change, allowing us to host the 12th annual Jenny’s Light Run on Sunday, May 31 as planned. We are disappointed that we will be unable to be together in person this year, but we are excited to announce that the 12th annual Jenny’s Light Run is going virtual!


 


The Jenny’s Light Virtual Run will be held on Sunday May 31, the last day of Maternal Mental Health Awareness Month. Registration will remain open until May 31, and we will charge the original race fees of $30 for the 5k, $35 for the 10k and $15 for the kids 1k. We plan to mail a tshirt and race bib to any registered participant so that they can wear it while they run on their own (and share pictures in their gear)! 


 


What’s a virtual race? A virtual race is a race 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. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.


 


Why should I participate? We need your support more than ever. With the shelter-in-place rules pregnant and new moms are even more isolated at home. Supporting Mamas has remained committed to supporting mothers and is now offering two free, virtual support groups per week. We’d like to add more and target specific populations. Your support keeps these programs running. 


 


How to participate: 1. Choose your location, then run/ walk/ jog/ bike/ roll or treadmill a 5k or 10k (or any amount of miles!) at any pace. MapMyRun and RunKeeper are great apps to track your distance and route. 2. Share your photos with everyone on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtags #runjennyslight #supportingmamas so we can cheer each other on and more! 3. And get creative because this year’s awards will be based on creativity, not speed!

Registration is still open! *Note that in order to receive a t-shirt by May 31 you must register by April 19.* Registration will remain open until race day and each registrant will receive a t-shirt, but you will not receive your t-shirt before the race if registering after April 19.
