Refuse To Abuse 5k® 2020

What is a virtual 5K?

On race day (July 11, 2020), you walk, jog, or run a 5K (3.1 miles) on your own, wherever it is safe to do so. You can be in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, or go on an adventure in a nearby neighborhood. The USATF website is great for mapping out a run. Just enter the zip code of where you want to start and go from there! We'll be interacting with you across social media channels throughout race day to make the experience fun and interactive. We will kick of the live event at 9:00 am PST at 

Do I get any of the usual race swag? Yes! This event is known for having amazing and unique finishers' medals and this year is no different! All registered participants will receive a finishers' medal and a Bluetooth speaker. You can either pick up your swag at T-Mobile Park on July 11 between 11:00 am - 2:00 pm or we will mail it to you. We'll have a safe, social-distancing compliant "drive-through" for you on the plaza next to the Mariners Parking Garage. Please wear a mask! If you don't come to race-day pick up, we will automatically mail your race swag to you the week of July 13. 

When does registration close?

Registration closes on Friday, July 10, 2020 at 11:59 pm US/Pacific.

Is there team registration? 

Yes. When you register you will be given the option to create a team, join an existing team, or just register on your own. 

Do I have to fundraise?

No, you are not required to fundraise to participate in this event, but we hope you will! Money raised will directly support the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence. At a time when so many survivors of abuse are experiencing isolation, we hope that this virtual event and fundraiser will provide some much needed connection and communicate to everyone experiencing abuse that you are not alone.
