Virtual Event
We will also holding a virtual Charles River Center 5k Run/1Mile Walk from September 18-25, 2022.

What does a virtual run/walk mean? Participants will have one week (from 8:00 am on September 18th 2022 to 9:00 pm on September 25th, 2022) to run/walk the 5k or 1 Mile wherever you'd like. You can run or walk anywhere, indoor on a treadmill or outside on a 5k/1 mile route you know. (You may even want to use USATF's route finder to find a certified 5K route close to where you live:

Remember to time your run/walk and submit your results via the google form found in your registration confirmation email. We accept results on the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. The most accurate way to do this is by using a GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices (eg, Strava, Garmin, Map My Run)

In addition, we encourage you to share photos of your run or walk by emailing them to or sharing them to our Facebook page: (Be sure to "like" the Charles River Center 5K Run/1 Mile Run Facebook page, which will enable you to post your photos.)
