Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the race?
Glad you asked! Gather the closest sisters, friends, and family near you on November 19, 2017, and jog/run/walk a 5k route of your choice. By doing this, you will be participating in the nationwide Run Like an Amazon Virtual 5K.
What is a “virtual” race?
A virtual race is a self-motivated competition organized online in which you complete a specific distance by running, walking or cycling, anywhere in the world. Virtual racing can be done on a treadmill at home or at the gym, at the beach with friends, alone, in the evening, or at the break of dawn, your choice. Throughout the race, share your pictures and experience with the Mu Sigma Upsilon Foundation social media outlets with the hashtag #RunLikeanAmazon
How will I receive my bib, t-shirt, and finisher’s medal?
Virtual runners can choose to receive all materials from their team leader the day of the race OR pay for S+H and have their bib, t-shirt, and medal mailed directly to them.
How do I set up a virtual race?
First, be sure to select a location that is well lit and known to you. Visit the location at the time you will be hosting the race to ensure lighting and safety of participants. Next, register yourself or team to receive your commemorative medal, t-shirt, and race bib!

Anyone is welcome to participate in our Run Like an Amazon Virtual 5K. If you can walk, jog or run a 5K, you can participate! Feel free to invite all of your friends and family to participate with you. This event is open to sisters, friends and family!
I’m not sure I can run a 5K, can I still participate?
Yes! You do not have to run. You can walk, jog, run, or do a combination of all three – just get to the finish line because an Amazon never quits!
