Sports Backers is launching a new ‘Pumpkin Spice 5k’ virtual event to celebrate fall and all the fun seasonal items that it brings, and the event will take place from now through Friday, October 30.
Registration is now open at www.sportsbackers.org. “The Pumpkin Spice 5k is the perfect virtual event for anyone who looks forward to fall and all that it brings,” Sports Backers’ Pete Woody said in a release. “If you think the spice is nice then you’re going to want to celebrate it by wearing your new Pumpkin Spice 5k shirt and running or walking 3.1 miles. Get your squash-loving crew to join you and then celebrate with a pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin beer, pumpkin cake, pumpkin doughnut, pumpkin pie…the options are endless.”
Registration is $17 and includes a Pumpkin Spice 5k short-sleeve shirt, printable Pumpkin Spice race bib, and a virtual event badge to share online. Participants can register now through October 30, 2020, then run or walk a 5k (3.1 miles) wherever they like (remembering to follow social-distancing guidelines). Sports Backers will start shipping participant shirts in early October.
Participants can also snap a photo and send it to Sports Backers, or tag @sportsbackers on social media. Use #pumpkinspice and #spiceisnice.
“We are continually striving to create fun and innovative ways to enjoy active living, and the Pumpkin Spice 5k a great way to do that,” said Meghan Keogh, Director of Events for Sports Backers. “We know that people love to get creative with their fall festivities and this provides a chance to celebrate in a unique and active way.”
