National Park Week
Virtual Race

5K / 10K / Half Marathon

It's often said the National Parks are 'America's Best Idea' and we agree. With 60 National Parks and another 400 or so protected areas, the National Park Service oversees over 85 million acres of land. These areas include monuments, battlefields, military parks, historic sites, lake/sea shores, and even the White House.

Over 330,000,000 people visit National parks each year and we're celebrating this year with "National Park Week" which is April 20-28.

Even if you can't make it to a park during that time, you can still participate in our race and raise money for the National Park Foundation (and earn some awesome swag).

When?
We recommend April 20–28

Most people will run during National Park Week, but you can run any time until May 19th.

Where?
Wherever you want!

Run at the park, the gym, your neighborhood, the beach, the treadmill, hike in the mountains, etc.

Swag Options

Shirt

Acadia National Park Centennial Anniversary Virtual Race Shirt

Show your National Park spirit! Choose from basic everyday t-shirts or performance tech-tees. (sizing)

Everyone that registers for a shirt will get it regardless of whether you finish your race. (All shirts have the same imprint.)

Bib & Sticker

Acadia National Park Centennial Anniversary Virtual Race Bib

Building your bib collection? Grab one of these sexy custom-printed bibs on waterproof paper.

Everyone that registers for a bib will get it regardless of whether you finish your race.

Medal

Acadia National Park Centennial Anniversary Virtual Race Medal

Want a sweet medal? You can't just buy it, you have to run!

Report your finish time by May 19th and we'll ship your medal!

Why do it this way?
To maintain the spirit of traditional races we believe finisher awards should be earned by finishing the race. If you don't report, you won't receive an award.

Our Charity Partner

A portion of each registration will be donated to

National Park Foundation

The National Park Foundation (NPF) is the official charity of the United States' National Park Service and its 418 national park sites. The NPF raises private funds for the benefit of, or in connection with, the activities and services of the National Park Service.

Policies
Registration

Registration will remain open until race day or until supplies run out, whichever comes first. 

Shipping

Registrations processed during Early Registration will receive any "welcome packet" content (e.g., printed bib / shirt / sticker / etc.) by the official race day. Registrations processed after this will receive any "welcome packet" content within 2 weeks of the end of reporting. Swag usually ships separately. All timelines are based on US Domestic shipping via the USPS. For our US Territory friends, on your address, please list your two-letter country code (e.g., AS, GU, MP, FM, PR, VI, MH) in the "State" field and "United States" in the "Country" field.

Shirts

In rare cases where the shirt style/color we list is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you.

Medals

Finisher medals must be earned. If you don't report, you will not receive a completion reward. 

Multiple Registrations

If you intend to register multiple people for this race, please add them to your account BEFORE you register yourself. You can do that in "Profile" once you're logged in. Watch this video to see how this is done.
