Description

Did you know that September 22 is Hobbit Day? It’s the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins! We are celebrating with our second annual Hobbit Day 5K!

September is also Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness Month, so we will be donating at least 15% of every registration to Be The Match, “for the thousands of people diagnosed every year with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, a cure exists. Over the past 25 years Be The Match ® , operated by the National Marrow Donor Program ® (NMDP), has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. We work every day to save lives through transplant.”

What: This is a 5K virtual run (or walk) to honor hobbits!

When: Complete your race any time in September. If you can complete it on Hobbit Day, September 22nd, even better!

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why: Because this is our way of celebrating Hobbit Day and to help raise funds for an amazing organization: Be The Match.

Cost: The price is $17 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Be The Match.
