Join us for the First Annual ConnecT1D All Alpha No Beta Virtual 5K!
World Diabetes Day is November 14th. How will you get involved this November and commemorate Sir Frederick Banting and his discovery of insulin?
The ConnecT1D All Alpha No Beta Virtual 5K is your opportunity to support programs for people impacted by Type 1 Diabetes while breaking a sweat, exploring your community, and connecting with friends, old and new.
Why a Virtual 5K? Maybe you are traveling in November, or love to run at night on trails.
Regardless of your location or schedule, you can be a part of the first ever ConnecT1D All Alpha No Beta Virtual 5K. Run, walk, jog, or maybe even rollerskate at your own pace, on your preferred course, at your favorite time of day, and still be able to support ConnecT1D and our programs.
You may be asking yourself - how does this whole Virtual 5K thing work? Well, it is really quite simple:
- Register through the Eventbrite Link to the right
- Join our Facebook Group to coordinate your run and meet others
- Run your course anytime from 12:01 AM November 14th to 11:59 PM November 20th (PT)
- Upload your results to the ConnecT1D Strava Group
- Receive your Race Medal in the mail
- Don't forget to take pictures of your event, and post them to our Facebook page. There will be a prize for the best picture!
Would you prefer to run with ConnecT1D as a group? We will be meeting on Saturday, November 19th around 1pm to do a 5K lap around Green Lake in Seattle. We re still working out the details, but make sure to watch the Facebook page and our website for updated information. We would love to have a large group join us on Saturday - what better way is there to make connections and build a larger community?
Thanks to our generous sponsor Road ID, we will have prizes available. As mentioned above, there will be a prize for best picture uploaded to our Facebook page. We will have other ways to win awards, so stay tuned.
Get plugged into ConnecT1D, meet new people, build lasting connections, and become an integral part of our community by joining us this November through the ConnecT1D All Alpha No Beta Virtual 5K.
