Photos Needed For Newsletter

We are needing photos for the May issue of The Long Run. Please send a selfie photo with a caption and any additional information of your Virtual Runs (Nielson Challenge, Woody's Tortoise and Hare, or other) to editor@pprrun.org

Woody's Tortoise and Hare 5K Virtual Event

  • Please adhere to the current guidelines on social distancing.

  • Governor Polis has asked Coloradans to enjoy outdoor time in your neighborhood and no further.

  • Participants must still register for the race on RunSignUp. The RunSignUp registration will be extended to midnight on race day. This is needed because we need the runner's gender, age, weight and height to compute a handicap. The easiest way to get that information is via the RunSignUp registration. Register Here

  • Run a 5K distance on your own. As you are running your 5K course, imagine that there are a string of runners ahead of you, and you masterfully power your way past as many of them as you can.

  • The 5K can be run anytime on race day, a 24-hour window. If you are a little bit on either side of the 24-hour window, that's perfectly fine.

  • It is the honor system to run a distance that is reasonably close to a 5K. There's no need to send in your tracking data or anything like that. If you say you ran a 5K, we believe you.

  • But please self-time your run, and report your finish time via the following Google Form: Click Here to report your result.

  • In-Progress results will be posted about every 2 hours during waking hours on race day. Final results will be posted around noon on the day after the race.

  • The results should be taken with a grain of salt, since everybody will be running different courses at different times of the day. But the results will be presented in such a fashion that it appears that everybody ran the normal course and we used a traditional staggered start based on registrants' handicap values. You'll be able to see how many runners you passed, and how many passed you, virtually, of course.

  • For those that use Strava, Tim Steffens has set up a Strava Club where you can share your virtual run with others.

  • In conjunction with this event, Marilyn Goodloe is heading up an effort to collect donations for Colorado Springs Care and Share, the food bank for Southern Colorado. COVID-19 is forcing many families to go without meals, paychecks, and essential resources. Care and Share is working with partner agencies across Southern Colorado to provide meal assistance to our neighbors in need. Thank you very much to those of you that donated funds to the Colorado Springs Care and Share. You went the extra miles and do make a difference in our community!

  • The normal entry fee for this event is free for PPRR members, and $5 for non-PPRR members. Shortly after the event was changed to a Virtual event, the entry fee was changed to free for everybody. At that time, there was $175 collected in entry fees from 35 non-PPRR registrants. That $175 will be added to the amount that will be donated to the Colorado Springs Care and Share. However, if you are one of the non-PPRR registrants that paid an entry fee before the race was changed to all free and you would like a refund, please let us know and we'll make that happen.
