Mammoth Lakes Virtual Fun Run
Mammoth Parks and Recreation, together with Visit Mammoth and the Mammoth Track Club, invite you to celebrate Global Running Day and join us for the inaugural Mammoth Lakes Virtual Fun Run! We are encouraging everyone to participate in this FREE event, get active during the COVID-19 isolation period and reach a fitness goal! All ages are welcome and awards will be presented in multiple categories. Every participant will also be entered into the draw for a ’lucky finisher’ prize. Stay tuned for sponsors and prize details!
Register for one of the pre-determined routes (Super Sprint/1km/5km/Long Course) below at: https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/MammothLakes/2020MammothFunRun
Once you have registered, you will receive an email within 24 hours containing a printable bib number. If you do not have access to a printer, alternative arrangements can be made. Bib numbers are not mandatory during the Mammoth Lakes Virtual Fun Run, however we encourage you to wear them to ’get in the zone’.
This will allow you to track and time your Fun Run, and submit your results. Make sure to link the app to your Facebook or Instagram accounts.
We will also happily accept other running apps you are already using, e.g. Strava, Adidas Running, Runkeeper, Pacer etc.
Head out to the designated starting point of your chosen route (Super Sprint/ 1km/5km/Long Course) at any time between Monday, June 1 (8am) and Sunday, June 7 (8pm). You can even complete the course multiple times if you want to improve on your first attempts. Maps of each of the routes are provided above and chalk markings will be provided on the courses. Make sure to do some warm-up stretches, that your Map My Run app (or other running app) is ready to track and time your Fun Run, and that you take a few photos to post later.
While completing your chosen Fun Run, please remember to maintain physical distance of at least 6 feet from those outside your household unit. When passing others, please step off the path to preserve your 6 foot bubble, and wear a mask or face covering when physical distance cannot be maintained.
ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO! Run, walk, skip or push your way to the finish line. Don’t forget to tap ’Start’ to record your Fun Run on your chosen app and ’Finish’ when completed.
Share your Map My Run (or other app) Fun Run results with Instagram and/or Facebook and make sure to tag or mention Mammoth Parks N. Rec! Please include your bib number and any photos of the race as well - there will be a prize for best photo!
