2020 Georgia 811 5K
Virtual Event: August 11 – September 12

 
 
Georgia 811 is hosting our 5th annual 811 Run/Walk 5K, August 11 – September 12. In an effort to prioritize safety during these uncertain times, this year’s 5K will be a special virtual event promoting safe digging! Participation will be free as we work to spread the message across various media outlets of just how important it is to contact Georgia 811 before digging.

Cost: The virtual 5k is free of cost, but we do ask that you share our social media message before and/or after completing your 5k. Those who share our social media message will be put in a drawing to win monetary prizes. All participants will be eligible to win our swag bags. Details below.

Location: Anywhere in the Continental U.S.
What counts as a 5k? Run/Walk/jog/skip/walk the dog/stroll…you get the idea!
 
 
 

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register for the 5k by CLICKING HERE. It’s free to participate! There is an option to donate to the P4 Foundation if you would like. Scroll down on the registration page to grab your virtual bib, which you may want to use in a selfie!
  2. Order your shirt – We offer an opportunity to purchase a 5k T-shirt for $20 (includes shipping and handling). We have a fun artsy shirt this year in sky blue. Adult size small-5x are available as well as Youth Size Large available. Register early so you can have your shirt by the kick-off day on August 11. Allow 2 weeks for delivery.
  3. This is a social media campaign 5k which is why we are making the run free! Copy our social media message posts or graphic to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages. Use one of our messages that are HERE (and also after you sign up on the registration page). Post a picture of you in your 5k shirt or with your virtual bib.
  4. Make sure you include #Georgia811Virtual5k as part of your social media post. Also tag @GA811 on Facebook/Twitter or @Georgia811Adventures on Instagram.
  5. Help us kick off 811 Day by completing your walk on August 11 or anytime up until September 12 (which would have been our original 5k event day).
  6. Join other runners on our 5k dedicated Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Georgia8115k/
  7. AND THERE’S MORE – We will have random drawings for prizes on September 13. So not only are you going to be able to participate for free, but you may actually win a prize. Just don’t forget to post a social media message and tag us at @GA811 to qualify.

SPONSORSHIP


 
There are several opportunities to become a sponsor of this community event. As a corporate sponsor, your company’s logo will be placed on the back of the race day shirt. We can also place literature about your company in our race bag that each participant receives if you provide us with any pertinent flyers/brochures. Other benefits depend on which level sponsor you select.


Thank You!
