FAQ

WHAT is a Virtual 5K?  When you sign up for our virtual 5K you can run or walk whenever you want wherever you want on September 13, 2020.  We hope you will wear your 5K shirt and recruit friends to do it with you (socially distanced of course).

WHEN should I run or walk?  ANYTIME before 4pm on September 13, 2020!  Let us know you finished an send your photos and videos to info@foster5k.org by 3pm

WHERE can I run or walk?  ANYWHERE!  This is your virtual run and we want you to complete it from wherever you want, whenever you want on September 13, 2020.  You're welcome to use our original course at Sunnyvale Baylands (note there is a $6 parking fee) or use a smartphone distance tracking app such as MapMyRun, RunKeeper, Strava, or the iPhone Activity app. 

HOW do I get my SHIRT?  If you signed up before August 29, you can pick up your shirt on Sept. 11 (11am - 1pm) at Child Advocates in Milpitas or and Sept. 12 (10am - 5pm) at A Runner's Mind in Los Altos. Check the shirt pick-up section for details.  If you signed up after August 30, we're sorry but you missed the shirt cutoff, but we have masks for those who are later to the party. 

What are the RAFFLE prizes? YES!  Every who comes to T-shirt pickup gets a free raffle ticket.  Purchase raffle tickets HERE to increase your chance to win (and help foster kids). You could win a pair of running shoes from A Runner's Mind, AfterShokz Titanium bone conduction headphones, a FitBit Inspire HR heart rate and fitness tracker or a mini-photograph session with award winning photographer Chris Shum Photography.

How do I join a TEAM? You can choose or create a team when you SignUp.  If you've signed up, then you can click on the menu for Group/Teams and create or find a group there.  We strongly encourage teams - there will be a contest for the team with the most check ins on 5K day!

Why don't I see a place to order my 5K Shirt?  We're sorry you missed our 5K Shirt order deadline of August 29.  We will have fun masks for those who signed up after the deadline (while supplies last). We hope you will still join us!  It's for the kids.
