No live race in 2021 Free virtual race, 10/13-11/8

 
The 23rd annual Greasy-Gooney 10K, which we'd hoped to hold as a live race on Saturday 23 October 2021, will not take place in person this year due to ongoing complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its stead, we are conducting a free "virtual race" via RunSignup like we did in 2020, and we hope you will keep the spirit of Greasy-Gooney alive 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 27-day race period (10/13 to 11/8), then you submit your result (by the end of the day on 11/8) 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 Wednesday 13 October and Monday 8 November. That gives you almost four weeks and four full weekends to get it done!

Where do I do my 10K?
Anywhere! From your home, on a treadmill, on a track, wherever you want. We know a few locals may want to run the actual Greasy-Gooney 10K course; if you intend to do so, 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. (Last year's virtual race raised a whopping $1,226.98!)

Questions?

Will there be a live race in 2022?
Boy, we sure hope so. We had been quite optimistic that we'd be able to hold the 2021 race in person, but the rise of the Delta variant and the late-summer spike in COVID-19 cases forced us to reconsider. Here's hoping we'll feel more comfortable with the idea of staging a live race next year. As our race always falls on the fourth Saturday in October, the 24th annual Greasy-Gooney 10K is tentatively slated for Saturday 22 October 2022.
