Ele's Race 5K Virtual Run/Walk
Saturday, July 25, 2020 - Start time 8:00 a.m. - or whenever you choose!

Ele's Race is an annual 5K Run/Walk that directly benefits Ele's Place - Capital Region, a healing center for grieving children and teens. It's a fun-filled family event that helps to raise funds and awareness for Ele's Place. All Ele's Place bereavement support services are provided at no cost to families, thanks to our generous community and participants in Ele's Race 5k.

Location: This year, Ele's Race 5K Run/Walk is going to be Virtual!   This means you can run/walk wherever you'd like, as we will not be gathering as a group due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

Packet Pick-up -  T-shirts and water bottles will be available for pick up the week of the Race at Ele's Place.  We will send out an email with dates and times closer to the event.

How does this work?  You are able to run/walk wherever you'd like...and anytime!  We will have online festivities on July 25th!

Will I get a shirt?  YES!  The hope is that we will have a time for you to pick them up.  If you are out of town, let us know and we can ship it to you.

Will I get anything else?  YES!  Ele's Race 5K participants will receive a cool water bottle.  These are available for pick-up only and will not be shipped.

Can kids participate in the Race?  YES!  If your child is able to do 3.1 miles, then register for the 5K. There is also a FREE Kids Mile option and Kids Dash.

Will I get a bib number?  YES!  You will be able to print yours from home!

Can my dog run/walk with me?  YES!  We are glad to add this feature to Ele's Race this year!  As long as you are in a place where dogs are ok to be there, too...then enjoy!  *No cost for dogs!

Will there be awards?   While we are not able to validate times and courses, participants are able to submit times.  Of all the times submitted, we will randomly select five lucky participants to receive a Playmakers Gift Card!  Winners will be notified by email.

Will there be Race Bags?  Yes!   The link is available on the Race website to registered participants.

Can I purchase a Memory Heart?  Yes!  These will be available for $20 each.  You will be able to take your Memory Heart and place it in your yard - or even carry it with your during your 5K.

How will I find out more details about the Race?  We will update closer to Race Day via email.  In the meantime, be sure to "like" our Race Facebook page for updates, inspiration and fun facts!
