McAuliffe's Annual 5K Road Race Re-imagined! Virtually!
McAuliffe is about community! We are after all “Crew Not Passengers”.
Our annual road race is a time when our community joins together with the greater metrowest community to celebrate spring, be active, and have fun together. We could certainly be discouraged by the COVID-19 roadblock that is not allowing us to gather in groups, but instead are looking at this as an opportunity to bring our community together in a new way - virtually.
This new virtual race will allow participants to run, walk, bike, or do what you love to be active while supporting McAuliffe. #challengebychoice The funds raised support our fieldwork program as well as professional development for faculty to support scholars of all learning styles.
The virtual event will take place the weekend of May 9-10, 2020, giving all participants ample time to get out and complete an activity with a distance of 5K doing an activity they love. Please remember to maintain the appropriate social distancing guidelines for this activity.
This is an opportunity for friends and family members near and far to support McAuliffe no matter where they live. After the race, the website will allow participants to enter their time so everyone can see how they performed doing the activity they love.
We look forward to continuing to build our "Crew" through this event. We are especially looking forward to the selfies you take along your route!
