If you don’t know what an #Anywhere5K is, the concept is simple. Instead of registering for a scheduled race at a predetermined location, #Anywhere5K says, “Don’t bother. Go run your own race.”
No registration fees, stale onion bagels, or watered down Gatorade. Just roll out of bed and go.
For the Troop Tribute #Anywhere5K we had a few handful of runners who accepted the virtual running challenge and supported the troops worldwide!
80 runners registered
61 supported the troops
27 men and 34 women
Ages 7 to 65
11 states and 6 countries

Many of you PR’d. Huge props to you. Running a race by yourself, against yourself, is difficult, making a PR all that more fantastic.
We’d like to improve wherever we can, and it’s also nice to know if we’re doing something right. If you have a spare moment, please fill out this 3 question survey.
