It’s simple. Go out and run an 8K (4.97097  miles) anytime between June 20 and July 4. You can run in your neighborhood, on the trails, or on a treadmill. Just make sure that you maintain a safe distance from others.  If you plan to submit your results, it’s best to use a GPS Running/Fitness app like Map My Run, Strava, or a Garmin watch or other timing device.


The VIrtual One-Mile Fun Run is even easier.  Just go out and and run or walk a mile. You’re improving your fitness and helping those Blessings in A Backpack kids.  WIN-WIN!!

We can’t think of a more fun way to help support the kids in our community. Proceeds from the Frederick Summer Solstice 8k benefit the Frederick chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.
