Description

2020 OKTOBEARFEST VIRTUAL FUN RUN!

Join us for the first-ever virtual OktoBEARfest Fun Run and see how much fun your socks and sneakers can “bear” for charity!  Celebrate your German spirit as you run, walk or jog anywhere and anytime from October 18 - 31, 2020 - you can even run the official OktoBEARfest route.  Choose from a 5K for adults or a 1K for children – it’s perfect for the whole family!  And when you participate you're giving back to children and families within the community, which is more important than ever!

*What is a Virtual Fun Run?*

The OktoBEARfest Fun Run is safe and convenient, because you decide where and when you want to complete it.  Choose your own starting line, whether it's your  neighborhood street, a treadmill or the official OktoBEARfest route. Then, run or walk the race distance (5K or 1K) – even over multiple days.  You can also upload your finishing time to show you officially completed the race.  Challenge yourself to complete a goal or get a group together (register for 5 at a special rate) and participate remotely.  You decide how you want to join the fun!

Share your fun run experience and finisher medal on social media and tag @BEARSWHOCARE and #VIRTUALOKTOBEARFEST in the video or photo!  We will be posting updates and hosting some exciting activities on October 18, which was to be the in-person event day, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

When: Run or walk from October 18 - 31, 2020

Start/Finish: In the Hamlin community – anywhere and anytime!  You can also run or walk the official OktoBEARfest route, which will be posted soon.
