A Virtual Run to Remember
Hosted by The Shelby YMCA
Friday May 28th, 2021 – Monday May 31st, 2021
Registration will be open through 5:00pm Friday, May 28th, but you must register by Monday, May 3rd in order to receive the race packet (t-shirt, dog tag,) before Memorial Day.
This year, our Run to Remember will definitely be one to remember! In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, we decided to make this year’s race a virtual run. Together, we can still honor the memories of our country’s fallen heroes on Memorial Day. The Shelby YMCA will provide you with everything you need for the best race day experience possible. You must sign up by Monday, May 3rd, 2021, to receive your race packet before Memorial Day weekend to complete your virtual race. Run or walk on your favorite route at your preferred time of day!
Virtual Timing – Use a smart device to track your time and distance. If you don’t own a smart device, simply use your car to plan the mileage of your route before you run and use any watch to start and stop your time! Pre-planned routes are also available on the Shelby YMCA website. When you register, a link will be sent to you with your BIB # and an explanation on how to report your time once you complete your run. This virtual race is just fun, friendly competition, so please be honest when you enter your time!
Don’t forget to send us your videos and photos! If you have a picture of the soldier or person you are honoring, feel free to hold that up for a photo too! Please send all photos and videos to [email protected] When you post on your personal social media pages, please tag the Shelby YMCA!
We know the last year has been a crazy one for many. We are happy to put on this event for our community and provide a reason to celebrate! Our goal at the Shelby YMCA is to strengthen our community. When you participate in A Virtual Run to Remember, we hope you find a sense of togetherness, a way to remember our current, retired, and fallen veterans, and ultimately a healthier YOU! If you are able, please consider partnering with us in our mission by contributing a meaningful donation along with your race fee to the Shelby YMCA.
