We’ve gone virtual!

We’re so excited to be able to host our annual 5k race and fun run again this year! Things will be a bit different due to the current restrictions in place for large gatherings, but we’re sure that this year’s event will be just as fun in this new format! As a 501c3 Non-Profit, Earth Spirit relies on funds from events and donations in order to continue programming at a low cost for schools and groups.

How it works…

This year’s event is being held virtually! This means that all registered participants will run their own 5k (or 1-mile) course any time between April 17th and April 25th and will be able to download the itsyourrace.com app or login to easily submit their 5k (or 1-mile) time. Once all participants have submitted their times, you’ll be able to see how yours compares to your friends or family. It’s that easy!

Registrants will be given their choice of event (5k or 1-mile) and whether or not they’d like to purchase discounted Earth Spirit merchandise as well!

Not sure where to run? Check out our USATF Certified 5k course at Chestnut Ridge County Park!

Support your local school…

New for this year, we are offering Tortoise and the Hare participants an opportunity support their local elementary or middle school by simply mentioning it when registering. The school with the most mentions will be eligible for a 25% discount on an Earth Spirit program of their choice during the 2021/2022 school year! Get your friends and family to register and mention your child’s school!
