Due to the global pandemic, the 2020 Goddess Run will now be a virtual run.
A message from Cathy, our Chief Goddess
I hope you and your family are staying healthy during these tumultuous times. I am sure you aren’t surprised by this message, but with the current ban on events and crowds, and with the safety of each of our wonderful Goddesses in mind, we have decided to move from an in-person event to a virtual experience for this year’s Goddess Run. While not the situation any of us wanted, luckily we have lots of experience in the Virtual Goddess Run world!
We are going to close registration as of April 22 and have a limited number of spots available. But there is still time to join us and receive all our awesome swag!
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN?
In case you haven’t participated in one before, a virtual run is a run/walk/skip that you do on your own, recording you distance and time yourself (if you want!). So rather than us all starting and finishing at Belmont School on June 6, we will instead encourage you to map out your own route on a day and time that works for you. You can also do the distance over multiple days. Even a treadmill will work! Please do practice physical distancing as we really do not want to see any of you running together if we are still isolating.
With the help of Race Roster, we will be providing you with a wonderful virtual experience with the ability to post your results, photos and more. And, of course as is a Goddess tradition, you will still be receiving all your swag, including your shirt, bead and a race bag filled with other goodies by June 1. And prizes of course! We will still have diamond jewelry from Lugaro that we will be doing draws for and everyone will be eligible no matter what distance you complete.
To be eligible for prizes, we will have a window of June 1 to June 22 for you to complete your Goddess Virtual Run. This window may change as the global situation changes.
IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED, WHAT’S NEXT
We will send you more details on how to participate in the virtual run as we get closer to the event. With the virtual run, you can still run your BMO 5K, Westhills 10K or even a half marathon. You can do the distance in one day or over a couple days. Login to your race roster account if you want to change to a different distance or send me an email at email@example.com
Fear not you don’t need to do anything (except train of course!). As all the swag has been ordered and is on its way we cannot issue refunds on the event. You will also be getting a special registration code once we open registration for the 10th Annual Goddess Run scheduled for June 5, 2021 and it will be a full weekend of activities.
GODDESS ONLINE TRAINING GROUP
Our Goddess community are meeting online, and our Goddess Ambassador Yana Hempler is setting up challenges and answering questions in the group. When you register you can join this group as well!
NOT REGISTERED YET?
We are going to keep registration open until April 22, but we have limited spots so we may sell out early. We hope you join us – register today HERE.
If you have any questions, please let me know. We are all in this together and we’re here to support you.
Take care Goddesses!
Cathy Noel, Chief Goddess
