Virtual Race Information


As part of the Fightin’ Irish 5K Ken Klipp Classic Virtual Race, you can register to walk, jog or run the virtual race on your own time in the location of your choosing and receive a commemorative t-shirt for your efforts. This means you can participate in your neighborhood, at the park, or even on a treadmill at home. You can complete your race at any pace within the completion time frame designated for the race.

Runners track their own times, and completion is based on the honor system.
