2020 Black is Beautiful Virtual 5K
Event Date: June 12th through July 4th
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. The Black is Beautiful campaign is a collaborative effort to raise awareness for the injustices people of color face daily and raise funds for police brutality reform and legal defenses for those who have been wronged.
Breweries from across the globe are supporting and participating in this campaign to stand together. They are using a beer recipe created by Weathered Souls and will all be launched on July 4th. More than 450 breweries, 45 states and 11 countries.

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.
Why would I pay to run a “virtual” race when I can run at home for free?
That is a great question, but it’s not without a good answer! In times like these we have faced in 2020, there is solidarity in getting out there with other runners/participants to complete a race and support a great cause…even if it is just in spirit.
Does this race benefit a charity?
Yes, we are donating to the charity Weathered Souls selected for this campaign, Know Your Rights Camp..
Is this race available to international runners?
Unfortunately, this will be a USA event only due to shipping requirement.
Have fun, take pics, share share share through your social media channels and be sure to tag #BlackisBeautiful
Registration is $35, and this includes shipping
If you register by June 22 (up to the first 250), we will work hard to get the shirt and finisher medal to you by July 4th to wear in celebration to the Black is Beautiful beer release.
Once the event closes on July 4th, it will take 7-12 days depending on print and shipping time to receive your medal or shirt.
