My First 5K

Go 3.1 miles, get awesome swag, feel great & celebrate your ACCOMPLISHMENT

Going 5 kilometers deserves to be celebrated!

Earn an awesome medal and get some other fun swag when you complete your first 5K! This stunning 4" medal will be one to help you celebrate your accomplishment and propel you for more.

How does it work?

During the registration process, you get to choose how you want your medal shipped. You can have it auto-shipped upfront so you can reward yourself as soon as you finish or you can choose the "report for rewards" option where you are required to go 5K (3.1 miles) and then report completion in the free VRC app and claim your reward. A third option is to remove your medal from the registration and just commit to going 5K and be held accountable to that commitment.

This program will give you the push needed to commit to move and nudge you to stay on track to succeed long-term.

How much does it cost?

Event registrations that include a medal are just $35!

How do I have to complete this race?

Take as long as you need. Those that choose the "report for rewards" option will have through 12/31/2023 to finish and claim their reward.
