A Virtual Run to Remember
Hosted by The Shelby YMCA
Monday, May 25th, 2020 (Memorial Day)
Registration will be open through Sunday, May 24th, but you must register by Saturday, May 9th in order to receive the race packet (t-shirt, participation military dog tag, and bib) 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. If you sign up by Saturday, May 9, 2020, we will mail you your race t-shirt, participation military dog tag, and race bib 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 track the mileage of your route before you run and use any watch to start and stop your time! On the day before the race, you will receive a link where you can add your race time. 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! We will be creating a video to highlight all walkers and runners at the conclusion of the race. We want to see you cross your homemade finish line in your race shirt and bib with your finishing time. 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] to be included in our highlight video. And when you post on your personal social media pages, please tag the Shelby YMCA and use the hashtag #shelbyYvirtualR2R
Due to these uncertain times, we know many of you are struggling emotionally, financially, and physically. Our goal at the Shelby YMCA is to strengthen our community. When you participate in the virtual Run to Remember, we hope you find a sense of togetherness, a way to relieve some stress, 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.
