Valentine’s Day Dash 2021

This year we have made the difficult decision to make the February 2021 Valentine’s Day Dash 5k Run/Walk Virtual.

This decision became even more eminent after realizing so many of our participants and supporters are immunocompromised. Since we want EVERYONE to be able to participate and want to ensure everyone’s safety and health, we decided to go virtual!

With that said, this year will be just as fun as last year!! Alexander’s Hope supporters from ALL OVER the world can participate this year and we will still give away all the goodies!!

Donate $10 or more for the possibility to win one of our GIVEAWAYS!

What is a virtual race?

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself!


Will I see race results?

Yes! Everyone will submit their results (or map them on our Strava group) and we will send out results after the race.

What is the distance of the Valentine’s Day Dash?

Participants are asked to run or walk a 5k (3.1 miles)!

Will there be t-shirts and giveaways?

Yes! Every participant will get a shirt (photo coming soon!!) and plenty of goodies from local companies!! Goodie bags will be dropped off or shipped to your home prior to the race (depending on where you live!)

Are there prizes?

Yes! There will be prizes for the fastest runners in each age group – we will ship them (or drop them off) to you!

Is there a certain day I need to do the race by?

The days you have to complete the race are February 13-14, 2021!

How do I track my distance and time?

We accept results on the honor system, but the most accurate tracking is typically via a device with GPS tracking – we are recommending Strava. After registering, prior to the race you will be receiving an email from us with how to join our Strava group! Results will also be submitted on the sign up page after the race (we will send a link via email!)
