The Black is Beautiful Virtual 5k is created to support the Weathered Souls Brewery, Black is Beautiful campaign. This is a time to come together and bridge the gap for equality.

What is a virtual race?

 A virtual race is very similar to a live race – you register, you run (on the honor system), you get a medal and shirt in support of a great cause; but  they differ from live events because you get to complete your run from anywhere you like…the neighborhood, the treadmill, track, country roads, etc.

*This is a US only race, due to shipping of the shirt and medal

Registration is $35 which includes shipping of shirt and medal.

How do I get my shirt and finisher medal?

Once the event closes on July 31st, or when 240 slots have been filled,  medals and shirts will be mailed out 7-10 days after the event closes.  This provides us time to print the right size shirt for you..

How do you know I completed the race?
First, this is all done through the honor system, so if you run or not, you will get your medal and event shirt.  For those that want to log their times once  you complete, a link is provided for you in your confirmation email.  Just click on “Manage Your Registration,” and follow the prompts.  You can even post a pic!

What do I get for registration?

  • Finisher medal
  • Black is Beautiful t-shirt (50/50 cotton & polyester blend – pre-shrunk unisex soft shirt)
  • Downloadable custom race BIB
  • Downloadable custom finisher certificate

Besides the medal and shirt, it’s all about the pride and camaraderie you share with so many others from across the US who participated in the event  and supporting a great cause.

Does this race benefit a charity?
Yes, we are donating to a local non-profit, 100 Black Men, in San Antonio, TX. 
Is this race available to international runners?
Unfortunately, this will be a US event only due to shipping requirement.
