Decorah Parks and Recreation is holding a "Virtual Race Series"

Posted: Thu, Apr 23, 2020 10:46 AM

A new "Virtual Race Series" sponsored by Decorah Parks and Recreation will include different race distances each week. Individuals may participate in one or all of the races. Participants should run or walk alone or with members of the same household. The race can take place anywhere a participant enjoys running or walking.

Participants may run or walk the required distance as many times as they want during the week, but participants should only submit their fastest completed race time. Times must be submitted by midnight on the final day of each designated race week.

Races are run on an honor system. The Decorah Parks and Recreation Department asks that participants be honest and accurate with the times they submit. Participants may contact the Decorah Park-Rec Office if they have questions or need assistance calculating the distance of a particular route.

Registration and race results should be submitted using the website link available at https://parks.decorahia.org/ for the corresponding race period. If a participant does not have internet access, results may be submitted by calling the Decorah Park-Rec Office at 563-382-4158.

Awards will be given to the top male and top female participant in each week's race (5k, 5 mile and 10k). Weekly drawing prizes will be awarded to two randomly selected participants in the Kids 1-mile race and two randomly selected participants in each week's respective race.
