The time for ShiftCon is almost here! If you were not able to attend this year, there are still ways for you to participate, such as our Virtual 5K that will be taking place the same dates as ShiftCon – but virtually, so you can run (or walk!) wherever you are. Arnicare, our sponsor for the 5K that will take place at ShiftCon on Saturday, October 3rd is also sponsoring the Virtual 5K for our at-home participants.
Whether you run, walk, or run AND walk, the point is that you’re moving with us for 3.1 miles. There are loads of reasons to run, everything from running being cheaper than therapy, wanting get in shape, loving a challenge or even because we just love running! If any one of these reasons (or any other reason!) strikes a cord with you, we would LOVE to have you join us as the ShiftCon community hosts a virtual 5K from October 2nd through October 4th.
How do I join in?
It’s simple really. You don’t need to meet us anywhere. It’s virtual, so we will all be walking or running together in our own communities, but chatting about it online. All you have to do is go to MAP MY RUN and map out a 5K in your own neighborhood and run/walk it between October 2nd and October 4th with us. You can even choose to do your 5K on a treadmill if that’s your only option.
When is it?
Thursday, October 2nd through Saturday, October 4th – you choose which day works best for you!
What time should I start?
It really doesn’t matter what time you start – whether you prefer to run in the morning, afternoon, or evening, so long as you are running (or walking) safely, it works.
Who should I do it with?
You can do it by yourself, with your family, with some friends, etc. We just want YOU doing it.
Is there a special hashtag?
Is there a prize?
Absolutely. Six participants will be randomly selected from those who have entered (by first RSVP’ing and then posting a sweaty after pic on the #shiftcon5K hashtag) and will receive a prize. The prize will be an Arnicare Runner Sip and Spray BPA-free water bottle.
How do I enter to win the prize?
First – RSVP to this post by hitting the Linky below
AND THEN during the dates of the 5K make sure to tweet a sweaty picture of yourself after it’s over using the hashtag #ShiftCon5K. We will be monitoring that hashtag and drawing a winner at random after the conference is concluded. Don’t have Twitter? Submit your pic on the Facebook event page here.
What if I can’t run?
No worries. We also are encouraging walkers. It’s really just an excuse for you to get moving.
