Running with Wolves Virtual 5K and 15K Race

Fitness and outdoors are a part of Scouting.  While you are social distancing and Scouting at Home, participate in our Scout On! Virtual 5K Race and 15K Bike Race.

So how does it work? A virtual race can be started from any location you choose so long as you are following the social distancing guidelines.

Date: June 1-15, 2021

Registration cost: $15 per racer, proceeds will be split 50/50 between Wolf Sanctuary of PA and the Pennsylvania Dutch Council, BSA.

This race is being held as a collaboration with the Wolf Sanctuary of PA, a nonprofit sanctuary for gray wolves and wolf-dogs in Lititz, PA.  Half the proceeds will go to help improve enclosures and provide daily needs and veterinary care for the wolves and wolf-dogs of the sanctuary. Wolf Sanctuary of PA has provided a home for displaced wolves and wolf-dogs since 1980 and they currently have over 50 residents in their care. To learn more about Wolf Sanctuary of PA visit wolfsanctuarypa.org

Once registered,  you will be emailed a racing bib.  Once you print it off  you are all set to run your race! For the 5K you can run/walk on the road, trail, treadmill, or on a track.  The 15K Bike race can be done on the road, trail, or a stationary bike.

You must register and complete the race by June 15th.  We ask that you email a race picture to nicole.welch@scouting.org or post on the Facebook event page.  If you race on a trail, feel free to share the location in your photo caption.

Patches will be mailed directly to you by the end of August.

You do not have to be a Scout to participate in this event.  Scouts from other Councils are also encouraged to participate.
