Virtual 5K Race To Benefit Relief Fund

Do you run? Do you walk? Can you do .19 miles a day for 16 days? Then let your feet do the talking for Scouting!

In light of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Patriots’ Path Council’s annual 5K race is going virtual for 2020. Through this unique event, PPC hopes to unite participants as they engage in a common activity and provide a feeling of togetherness while apart.

A virtual race can be ran or walked on your treadmill or from any location you choose as long as social distancing and all COVID-19 guidelines are practiced. Get your run/walk in between August 15, 2020, at 12:01 a.m. through August 30, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. You will need to upload your time through the registration process.

An event special for a team of two recently was announced. For $50 ($38 registration fee and a donation of $12), the team will receive as a gift one each of the Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation and Winnebago Scout Reservation 2020 summer camp patches.

JUST ADDED: Every registered participant will receive three music playlists to help your feet keep the beat!

All proceeds from this event will go toward Patriots’ Path Council’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund – Campaign For Scouting. This fund will help continue to serve 15,000 Scouts in northern and central New Jersey that count on Scouting to instill character, develop skills and leadership, and build resilience.
