The 2020 Pace and Pedal has gone VIRTUAL!!!

The COVID-19 outbreak may place limits on events and gatherings of people, but it doesn't put a limit on physical activity and having fun! While we are sad not to get to see your smiling faces in person this year, we are SUPER EXCITED to host our first ever VIRTUAL event! The Pace and Pedal event will be a Virtual 5K Color Fun Run/Walk. Sign up today, keep exercising and training, and plan your own personal Pace and Pedal 5K in your own neighborhood and backyard (just please be mindful of staying within your family/small groups, based on the current CDC and State of Wisconsin guidelines on your chosen race day). This is a great opportunity to stay active and healthy during this crazy time in our lives.

Note: The Pace and Pedal Duathlon portion of the event has been cancelled. Pre-registered participants will be contact with option of switching to the 5K event or having their registration fees refunded. Also, the 1 Mile Youth Run is no longer listed but youth can simply register for the 5K event and complete whatever distance they are able.

How does the Virtual Pace and Pedal 5K Color Fun Run/Walk work?

  1. Register for the Pace and Pedal 5K (pre-registered participants will be given option of switching to new virtual race or having money refunded). Registration will re-open on Monday, March 30.
    • Participants age 13 and up: $10
    • Participants age 12 and under: $5 (FREE for local youth with coupon code)
      • Our virtual race can be done by anyone, anywhere! This is super exciting and a great way to share our event with others, but could break our budget if youth all over the country want to be a part of the fun. To help manage our expenses, the cost will be $5 for youth but we will be distributing a coupon code for area youth. Please contact jacksoninaction12@gmail.com for your code if you do not receive it.
