Natick Service Council is once again holding its Fall for Natick Virtual Race, but this time, we’ve added a 10K bike category, in addition to a 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk!
Race anytime, anywhere between September 18th and September 26th!
The benefits of a virtual race!
SLEEP IN: No waking up early on a Sunday morning. You can race any time you want!
HILLS: You get to choose your route and determine how many hills you want to climb!
WEATHER: Planning to race today, but the weather isn't cooperating, race tomorrow!
FAMILY: Race as a family. Get outside, get some exercise and have fun as a family!
And most importantly support Natick Service Council! Our motto is "Neighbors Helping Neighbors". Those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic will need our help in the long term. Please support the critical work we do by joining our race or making a donation today.

How does a virtual race work? Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions!
Where Should I Race?
You will have nine days to run, walk or bike the race wherever and whenever you want. You can race anywhere, indoor on a treadmill/stationary bike or outside on a route you know. (You may even want to use USATF's route finder to find a certified 5K route close to where you live: https://legacy.usatf.org/routes.)
How Do I Track my Distance and Time my Run?
We will be accepting times by the honor system, so you can track your distance and time however you like. The most accurate way to do this is by using a GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android devices (eg, Strava, Garmin, Map My Run).
Can I use Social Media to Publicize my Run?
You bet! Show the online world your effort, take a selfie, share your racecourse, and your story. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #NSCFallforNatick. And please share your photos with us by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org or sharing them to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/natickservicecouncil.
Anyone who registers by August 15th will be guaranteed a t-shirt! T-shirts will be first come first serve for those who register after August 15th.
