No live race in 2020 Free virtual race, 10/17-11/1

 
The 22nd annual Greasy-Gooney 10K, originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 24 October 2020, will not be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its stead, we have created a free "virtual race" via RunSignup, and we hope you will keep the spirit of Greasy-Gooney alive this October by signing up to run/walk ten kilometers on your own wherever you live!

What's this "virtual race"?
It's a race you do by yourself on your own time! First you register for the race, then you run or walk 10 kilometers (6.2137 miles) on your own wherever you want anytime during our 15-day race period (10/17 to 11/1), then you submit your result (by 11/1) and you see how you did against our other participants!

How much does it cost?
It's free to register & participate! Really!

When is this?
You can run or walk your 10K anytime between Saturday 17 October and Sunday 1 November. That gives you two full weeks and three full weekends!

Where do I do my 10K?
Anywhere! From your home, on a treadmill, on a track, wherever you want. (We know a few folks have expressed an intent to run the actual Greasy-Gooney 10K course; officially we are discouraging this, but if you absolutely must, please see our Course page for route details and our Directions page for important info on where to park.)

How do I report my result?
You submit your result here on RunSignup!

Are there premiums or awards?
Nope! This is all just for fun. And it's free, so we have no budget to pay for stuff anyway!

Is there a catch?
The only catch is that during the registration process, you'll be given the option to make a donation that will be split between our two regular beneficiaries in recent years, the Browntown Community Center Association and the Humane Society of Warren County. Donations are completely optional (and private), however, and you are absolutely welcome to participate in our virtual race without donating!

Questions?
Contact race director Karsten Brown by e-mail or at (540) 635-1773.

Will there be a live race in 2021?
We sure hope so! As our race always falls on the fourth Saturday in October, the 23rd annual Greasy-Gooney 10K is tentatively slated for Saturday 23 October 2021.
