WHERE can I run/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 join a team? You will be invited to 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!
