Ahoy Mateys! Grab yer pirate hat and decorate yerself for the Virtual Pirate Rum Runner!
Run, walk or hike a 5K, 10K or Half Marathon (either as one run/walk or in segments) between June 27th and August 28th and earn a super commemorative finisher’s medal as well as a cool, comfortable performance shirt.
FORM A TEAM Expand your race fun by starting a social team or joining an existing team. Teams can be formed by families, churches, businesses, running clubs, or just random friends. All you need is a team name (Feel free to be creative!) to get started. Once you form your team invite your friends to join the fun.
SHARE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT We encourage you to share a photo or workout data on our FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE once you’ve completed your “race”. This will give our community an opportunity to celebrate your accomplishment and finish virtually.
POST YOUR RESULTS You can post your race results through your RunSignUp.com account. Just log-in and find the Pirate Rum Runner event. Look to the right hand side for the link to “Post Results”. From there you can post your results and/or indicate you have completed your 5K, 10K or Half Marathon.
PACKET PICKUP/MAILING OF PACKETS We plan to have several opportunities for local runners/walkers the end of August/early September. For those who live outside, we’ll mail you your packet for a $5.00 shipping charge.
ARE YOU NEW TO THE VIRTUAL RUN/WALK CONCEPT? A virtual run/walk provides the opportunity for our community to still conduct charity events during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since we are limited in our ability to gather together a virtual race gives you the opportunity to run/walk/hike your race on your schedule in your hometown. You can run/walk any route you wish and do it in one run/walk or in segments to accumulate the mileage.
SHIRT SIZING Our shirts are unisex sizes. We will only order the shirts which are claimed through the race registration process so there will be no shirt swaps once you receive your shirt.
In order to receive a FREE race t-shirt and medal you MUST pre-register BY August 14th. The first 150 people to register by August 14th will receive the SWAG. After August 14th, you will no longer be able to receive the swag, as they will be going to print.
Aside from the fun stuff, your participation supports a great cause. The Pirate 5K Rum Runner raises funds to benefit local veterans organizations.
The race cost is $25.
