Virtual Warrior Walk information
Helpful hints and instructions for completing a VIRTUAL Warrior Walk:
There are many positives to participating virtually in the Wilmot Warrior Walk—the best being that you can complete the Wilmot Warrior Walk in a unique location that is convenient and special to you. We hope you will take this opportunity to come together with your team (via video chat, social media, or in-person) to support the Wilmot Cancer Institute.
Whether in your neighborhood, backyard, or a park: do what works best for you and your team. Have fun and show your spirit:
How do I participate in the Warrior Walk?
You can register as an individual or as part of a team. The virtual 10K/5K allows you to walk or run on your own, at any time of day, in any place you like! The only rules are that you complete the distance (10K/6.2mi or 5K/3.1mi) during the assigned race period and track your own time. You can track this using a number of different options: a GPS watch, your smartphone via many apps (MapMyRun, Runkeeper, Strava, etc.), or go to a known 10K/5K course outside and follow the map! You can even use a treadmill if you would prefer to stay indoors.
Although you don’t have to raise a set amount of money, we will give out incentive prizes for the top fundraisers. We realize this may be a difficult time to ask your friends and family for donations. Remember that every dollar raised stays right here in our community to support research and care at Wilmot Cancer Institute.
How long do I have to finish the race:
The race period is anytime between 9 a.m. Friday, September 10 and 5 p.m. Sunday, September 12. Please run and submit your finishing time during this period.
What do I do after I finish my 5K/10K?
Once you finish your race, submit your time here to receive a finisher's certificate and t-shirt. Be sure to check our website to see your time posted!
To make our virtual Wilmot Warrior Walk even more fun, we have created contests:
We are excited to see the creative ideas you and your team come up with to have fun while supporting the Wilmot Cancer Institute!
