While we'd love to host our annual race as we have in the past, due to school closures and social distancing guidelines, we have decided it will be best to host MTEF’s Red, White, and Blue Streak 5k and Fun Run virtually this year.
How does a Virtual Run/Walk work?
We encourage you to run or walk the 5k (3.1 miles) or the Fun Run (100 yards) between 12:00AM on May 17 and 11:59PM on May 31. This can be done wherever you are – on a treadmill; on a rails to trails path; or even the race course – it’s your choice! Then connect your experience and offer encouragement to other participants by posting on the Manheim Township Educational Foundation’s Facebook page utilizing the hashtag #MTEFVirtualRun. While we cannot share physical space, our hope is that we can still build community and promote healthy lifestyles online.
We aren’t charging a fee to participate in the race but if you would like to support MTEF’s mission to provide resources for innovative educational programs for all Manheim Township School District students – consider doing that here: I'd like to make a donation!
Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:
Top M/F overall: medal & certificate, a 4 class pack from Orangetheory Fitness Lancaster, their choice of $25 Chick Fil A or Lancaster Escape Room gift card
Top M/F 5k winners in each age category (14 & under/15-18/19-29/30-39/40-49/50-59/60-69/70+): medal & certificate
All Fun Runners: certificate
Most patriotic photo: certificate
