We are excited to announce the RunVermont Virtual Run/Walk Series, Get Out, Give Back. This three race series will also support some of Vermont’s most important non-profit organizations. The series dates are May 24th, June 20th and July 18th. Race registration is now open for the first in the series. For more information and to register, go to: https://runsignup.com/Race/VT/Burlington/GetOutGiveBack5KFirstLeg
For the May 24th event, $15 of your $25 registration fee will go directly to The United Way of Northwest Vermont to support their efforts in helping our community during the pandemic. We are including an additional donation option as well in case you'd like to add to that $15.
Their mission is "to build a stronger Northwest Vermont by mobilizing our community to improve people’s lives. United Way isn't just our name – it's how we work. We bring together individuals, nonprofits, businesses, and government entities to create a strong, vibrant, and healthy community. We fight for the education, financial stability and health of every person in Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties."
Your race fee also includes:
- A Virtual Bib - Print it, decorate it and wear it for your virtual run!
- Prize Swag – “Spring Cleaning Grab Bag”. We have great t-shirts, hats and hoodies from previous races looking for a good home!
- And if you complete all 3 races in the series, we’ll send you a RunVermont buff.

Right after you register you will receive a unique URL to share with your friends -- if 5 sign up using your unique URL you will receive a (really cool) RunVermont Trucker Hat. Just send them (or post) your special URL for your friends to use so YOU get the credit.
