Raptor run 5k
Oh, the velociraptor. The name literally means “speedy thief”. While we don’t condone robberies, we do cheer on your efforts to race hard and snag some serious hardware.
Because if a dinosaur is chasing you, the best thing to do is run.

Nope. You can complete your race distance in your movement method of choice. Running is great, but so is walking, hiking, dancing, swimming, rucking…
Check out our mileage conversion chart if you plan to transpose another physical activity into wellness miles.
You can finish your race whenever works best for you. The last day to report your time to earn your medal is December 31, 2022. Regardless of when you finish, we'll be there at the finish line cheering you on.
Due to its custom nature, all swag ships separately in the methods and timeframes listed below.
- Ship with a tracking email from [email protected]
- Will automatically ship within 3 business days for those who opted to "Autoship" their medal.
- Will ship within 3 business days after reporting on the free VRC app, for those who chose the "After I Report" option. Medals only ship AFTER the race is marked as finished in the app and the award is claimed. If the medal isn't claimed in the app, it isn't sent.
