Are you tired of not feeling safe when running alone? Worried about all of the "likely" possibilities before you lace your shoes and head outside? Are you mad, fearful, or annoyed with having to think about your safety as a runner? Whether you love running, are new to running, love to hate running - this is the run for you! All are welcomed as we hope to continue growing a community for safe group running. #MyFavorite5k
Included: Run/Walk, Medal, Bib, Photos, Wine Tasting (one tasting per registration)
We will be raising funds for our group to feel "safe" while running - such as paying for self-defense workshops, safety gear (headlamps, safety vests), self-defense tools, and more. Any excess will be donated to a local women's shelter.
This will be a low-key, no frills organized 5k inspired by true crime comedy podcast My Favorite Murder! Limited spots due to winery capacity.
Virtual 5k option: Medal, Bib will be mailed to you after the race. A Virtual 5K (or any other virtual race) is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run, use a treadmill, or participate in another race. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. You do not need to send us proof - just send us your mailing address to mail medal, etc. Wine tasting is not included in virtual option.

Questions about registration.
Q. Is there DAY OF Registration?
A. Yes, please note, there is a $10 additional day of fee.
Q. What comes with the kid's entry?
A. The kid's entry includes everything an adult entry would include, but at a lesser charge. Please only register for the kid's entry if the kid is 10 and under. The kid's entry will be listed under the person who purchased the registration (their name).
Q. Are there refunds?
Q. Can I transfer my entry to a friend?
A. Yes, with a $10 transaction fee. You can transfer to another person or another event. However, no transfers will be allowed two weeks prior to the event. You can pay via www.paypal.com (use friends/family option to avoid fees) to our email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, original event signed up for and new date requesting.
Q. Can I transfer my entry to another date?
A. Yes, but you will need to pay any fee differences PLUS transfer fee and must be done one week prior the event.
Q. What is a virtual race?
A. A Virtual 5K (or any other virtual race) is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run, use a treadmill, or participate in another race. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. Do not show up to the race on race day, unfortunately, you will not be able to get your medal/bib. All bibs/medals will be mailed AFTER the race.
DO NOT SHOW UP TO THE EVENT. A virtual race does not provide you with a day of registration.
Q. Can I transfer to a virtual race or vice versa?
A. Sorry, no transfers.
Q. I couldn't make it to the event, can I get my medal and bib mailed to me?
A. No, you must attend the event to receive medal/bib.
Q. Does everyone get a finisher's medal?
A. Please stay up to date on our race medal deadline. Each race will have a deadline to receive finisher's medals (typically 4-6 weeks prior to the race). After this date, we will no longer be guaranteeing medals.
Our 2020 goal is to produce less and waste less. If you really want a medal, register ahead of time as we will not be ordering extra medals. After this date, we'll be using the medal fee and donating it towards the race-specific charity, our running group, and/or our gofundme fundraiser. Thank you for understanding.
Q. What if I'm running late?
A. You can start the run/walk on your own and pick up your packet AFTER you complete the run/walk.
Our goal is to offer quality races for new and novices runners & walkers - come back to our monthly races or our annual races!
