VIRTUAL RUNNER/WALKER OPPORTUNITY We have added a Virtual Runner/Walker opportunity so that anyone, anywhere can support our race and charity partner. Those who sign up as a Virtual Runner/Walker make a $30 donation and we’ll mail you your commemorative race shirt and bib. Then you can run/walk (optional) your own A Midsummer Night’s Run 5K in your own hometown on your own schedule. This is great for people who live outside the Lexington area or will be out of town during our August 8th event.
