Still Need More Information?

Here are some FAQs:

Q: What exactly is a “Virtual” 5K?
A: A virtual 5K is an opportunity for people from all over to come together to support a cause they all care about… just not all at the same time or in the same place. You can complete it on your own time, anywhere and any way you’d like.
Q: How will I get my awesome SHELTON 5K long sleeve t-shirt?
A: We’ll start mailing those out in the middle of October. Make sure we have your best address so it gets to you.
Q: I just want to support the Red Hat Shelton Challenge and get that cool t-shirt. Do I really have to run?
A: Nope! There is no requirement to actually complete the 5K, although we hope you all take this opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy the great October weather… responsibly distanced from others, of course!
Q: Do I have to submit anything when I’m done?
A: Again, nope! BUT, we’d love to see some selfies or screenshots from your walk/run/bike apps to share on social media. You can submit them HERE or tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
