Virtual Father's Day 5k

Contact Us

June 21 & 22, 2020

Spooky Nook Sports is hosting its fifth annual Father’s Day 5K a little differently this year!

ALL PROCEEDS from these registrations will be used to buy gift cards to local restaurants that the winners can then use to continue supporting our community.

This VIRTUAL 5K and fun run is for families and runners of all ages. Dads, moms, kids, friends, coworkers, and members of the community are invited to participate in this fun event from the safety of their own communities!

 

Have questions about this race? Don't worry. We have the answers below.

How does this race work?

  • Register online at EventBrite or on this page.
  • Run whenever you want throughout the 2020 Father's Day weekend (6/20 & 6/21) at your own pace, your own time, and on the path of your choosing.
  • Share a photo of you doing this run with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for a chance to win some great prizes.

Why am I being charged if this race is 'virtual'?

Great question. Our team really racked our brains for ways to provide this race to all of you, while simultaneously supporting local restaurants. So, this is what we came up with:

  • Registration will be $10 for adults and $5 for kids (12 and under).
  • ALL PROCEEDS from these registrations will be used to buy gift cards to local restaurants that the winners can then use to continue supporting our community.
  • There is an option to provide additional funds to support these businesses if you'd like to go above and beyond the registration fee.

How do I win a gift card?
