National Park Week 2019

791 Participants

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - ALL SWAG IS SOLD OUT


It's often said that National Parks are 'America's Best Idea' and we agree. With 60 National Parks and another 400 or so protected areas, the National Park Service overseas over 85 million acres of land. These areas include monuments, battlefields, military parks, historic sites, lake/sea shores, and even the White House.

Over 330,000,000 people visit National parks each year and we're celebrating this year with "National Park Week" which is April 20-28. Even if you can't make it to a park during that time, you can still participate in our race and raise money for the National Park Foundation. And earn some awesome swag.

You can run, walk or hike this race and do it wherever you want! Sign up now.


NOTE: We have sold out of our first & second batch of finisher medals. More are on the way, but they will not ship to those that report their finish time until June.

Shirt/Bib/Sticker Info & Deadlines

  • Register by March 25 & your shirt/bib/sticker will arrive by April 20
  • Register after March 25 and your swag will not ship until Late-May

We will place two shirt orders for this event — one before and one after. Everyone that registers for a shirt, bib and/or sticker will get it - regardless of whether you finish your race. ALL SHIRTS HAVE THE SAME IMPRINT.

*Note: registrations are a la carte, so you get to choose what swag you want

Finisher Medal Info & Deadlines

Only those that register for a medal will get one, AND only if they report a finish time. Medals will start to ship shortly after the event but only to those that registered before we sold out early in the day April 25. Those that regsitered after that time will get their medal in late June, but only to those that report their time. The last day to report your finish time is May 19, 2019.

Add On Options

 

We are also providing our usual customized printed bibs & stickers for this event. One or both of these can be added once you make your registration option selection. Stickers are about 6" x1".

Important Info

The official race day is as listed above. Registration will be open through that day as supplies last.

To maintain the spirit of traditional events, we believe a finisher reward should be earned by finishing the race. We verify that you finished by requiring that you report your time to your account. If you do not report, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REWARD.

As far as we’re concerned, race day is as listed above and we anticipate that most people will race that day - BUT - the advantage of having a virtual race is you can do it when and where works best for you. So it’s up to you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, but just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.

A portion of each registration will be donated to the National Park Foundation.


Boring Yet Important Notes: 1) All swag usually ships separately and all timelines are based on US Domestic shipping via the USPS. 2) In rare cases where the shirt style/color we list is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you. 3) If you intend on registering more than one person for this race, please add them to your account BEFORE you register yourself. You can do that in "Profile" once you're logged in. Watch this video to see how this is done. 4) For our US Territory friends, on your address, please list your two-letter country code in "State" and then "United States" in the country field. (AS, GU, MP, FM, PR, VI, MH).
