It's time for the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend! Can you believe it's been a year since our first virtual race? We are still feeling the no-in-person-race-blues, but what a heart warming experience it's been seeing the community come together for these virtual races with such passion and creativity! Regardless if you're officially registered or not, join us for the 5k on Friday, 10k on Saturday, and Half Marathon on Sunday - running, walking, biking, rowing, etc any distance you'd like. This is our time to celebrate what our bodies can do, with of course a little Star Wars flair.
As with every virtual race, we've put together bibs, start/finish lines, and virtual medals for each race distance to either print out or copy/paste onto your race photos. Everyone who joins us, tags @crownedathletics, and uses the hashtag #racewithcrowned will be entered to win some FREE Crowned Athletics goodies.
Of course a race weekend wouldn't be complete without a race expo - so each day at 2:15pm EST (Sat & Sun) we will hold a virtual expo on Instagram Live. If you've been to any of our previous lives, you'll know that we always have mystery discount codes, giveaways, and product sneak peeks!
See you in the STARS, Crowned Crew!
