2019 Hobbit Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2
*THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE!
Did you know that September 22 is Hobbit Day? It’s the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins! We are celebrating with our fourth annual Hobbit Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2. The medal has a quote from Gandalf that says, “I found it is small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay…small acts of kindness and love.”
September is also Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness Month, so we will be donating at least 15% of every registration to Be The Match, “for the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant.”
*For a limited time purchase an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
