5/30 7 am - 5/31 7 pm | ANYWHERE

Everyone loves a standing ovation…
Well, how about a moving one?!

Join us as we celebrate the Superheroes of

the COVID-19 epidemic: our brave essential workers.

CAPE’s Marathon Project will host its first-ever virtual 5K race! That means you can complete this race however and wherever works for you!!! We are hosting this event in honor of our brave essential workers. It’s a great way to stay socially distant while standing up for a cause and promoting self-care during this difficult time.
CAPE’s Marathon Project is an innovative, long-distance running program that pairs adult mentors with at-risk youth in participating school districts in the Hudson Valley. The program provides opportunities for students to set/achieve goals, explore avenues for character development, improve health, and build positive student/adult relationships through mentoring.

What is a virtual race?

In order to adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines for social distancing, we are doing a virtual 5K. That means you can run, walk, or skip your way to your ‘finish line’ from wherever you want. You can join us on your treadmill, take a walk in the woods, or hit the pavement in your neighborhood! You will qualify for the race as long as you complete a 5K (3.1 miles), track your time and your route using a fitness device (such as a FitBit or Apple Watch) or a fitness app with GPS (free ones include Map My Run or Runkeeper). Once complete, you can submit your results to us online and post a picture of yourself at the finish line. Instructions will be provided for you to snap a photo at the end using a special NASWC finish line filter that will available on social media during the event timeframe.
