MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — Add the Roundhouse Aquarium’s 8th Annual Fun Run for the Oceans to the list of fundraisers that have gone virtual this year, in this time of COVID-19. The October 10th event is a Virtual 5K and participants can walk or run anywhere and then upload their times. The first 100 registrants will receive a limited edition T-short with a $42.95 registration fee. The $30 registration fee includes a special gift, according to the Roundhouse.
Participants may register as an individual or create a team to compete with friends and have a friendly competition amongst each other. This year, the Fun Run also includes a virtual raffle with prizes. Purchase raffle tickets when you register.
The Virtual 5K can be run anywhere; you simply upload your time to Racewire. Participants will not receive “an award or medal for finishing first, but you will be making a difference to the Roundhouse, our animals, and our students,” according to a post on the Roundhouse website.
