The Virtual races can be run any time the runner choses, as long as the race is completed by the end of January 2022. The course is up to the runner but the distance must be either a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon or a 1 mile kid’s run. Timing is based on the honor system. After completion, please take a picture of your tracking device and submit it, along with a picture of yourself/team to our email address, RunningForResearchPWS@gmail.com and we will publish them in our gallery.

Our team is open to individuals with PWS as well as typical runners and walkers.

All runners will be provided a free “couch to 5K” training program (which can also be used for 10k training) and also a half marathon training program. There will be a 5k training program designed by Dr. Buck specifically for PWS persons. Participation in the training program is not mandatory but is recommended.

Dr. Buck will also provide virtual coaching throughout the training process and will be available for individual consultation if necessary.

The fundraising goal for each runner/team is $1,000.  Click here to create your Fundraising Page.

Each registered member of a fundraising team will receive a free team shirt as a thank you their effort.

Those runners raising $500 or more will also have the chance to vote on a costume that Dr. Miller will wear during the Disney 5k and 10k races!
