Virtual 5k

Here at Factory Sports we are looking for ways to help you stay healthy and yet maintain social distancing which is so vital right now. Our Virtual 5k checks a few boxes that we value here at Factory Sports;

  • Social Distancing
  • Competing
  • Safe Environment 
  • Fun
  • Making a Difference


In our second adventure into the virtual race space we are partnering with the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice to host a Virtual 5k Run/Walk. The concept is simple, run or walk the race within the listed time frame and submit your results. It can be done at one outing or over the course of multiple segments. We will be providing race results, as submitted by you. All registered participants will receive a Finisher Certificate, a Race Medal, and a Race t-shirt. Please feel free to take pictures and be an ambassador for a great cause.


Remember a 5k is 3.1 miles


Race Starts | Saturday August 1

Race Ends | Sunday August 16

Extended to Sunday August 23
