Join the University Park community starting April 24th through May 9th as we run (or walk!) the Azalea Classic – virtually! Let’s show how strong we are together, even when we are apart!
How do I run a virtual Azalea Classic?
Indeed; though it’s really not that cerebral. UPES PTA Azalea Classic Director Extra, Abby McDermott, shares how a virtual 5K works:
- “Register for the Azalea Classic ONLINE here and run any race of your choice on ANY route of your choice – choose between the 5K, our 1 Mile Challenge, or our 1K Family Fun Run.
- Next: Run/walk any time between Friday April 24 – Sunday May 9, 2021 and submit your times (and a photo!) via the link on our Azalea Classic Runner Info page here.
Put another way, your run at your place (wherever that may be) at your pace (15-minute mile here…) for this virtual 5K. We realize this is not the same as an in-person race, but it’s the safest way right now so let’s lace up, do our 5K/1K/1-mile thang and help raise much needed funds for our beloved community public school!
*All registrants get an official race t-shirt with a design contributed by 2020 University Park Elementary School graduate Me’Lana Bell!
