What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that you can do anywhere and anytime! We know, it's not ideal...but what about this year is? How does it work? Run your 5k or walk your two miles anywhere, anytime between October 1 and October 11 and then tune into to Facebook LIVE at 6:00pm on October 11 for our virtual celebration.

What are referral rewards and how do they work?

Referral rewards are a way for us to reward our participants by helping to promote Gilda's Run/Walk! When you register, you'll get a unique referral code within your confirmation email and the rest is easy! Share that special URL on Facebook, via email, text, or anywhere else you want to; if five people register using your referral code, you'll automatically be refunded $20 of your registration fee.
