What: Virtual 10K Run For the Planet
When: August 3-7, 2017
How: Register to run, skip, jump, or walk 10 kilometers any time between August 3-7 and be automatically entered to win prizes from our sponsors.
The Best Part? Walk away knowing 100% of your run registration fees fund microcredit loans to lift entrepreneurs and their families out of poverty in 69 countries.
Consider This: the average first microloan in Haiti can be as low as $25 and the average first microloan in Rwanda can be as low as $35. Your run registration fee can help an entrepreneur lift herself and her family out of poverty by starting her own small business.
We’ve funded 1.9 million microloans in the global community and we hope you’ll run with us from August 3-7 to help fund more opportunities for microentrepreneurs all over the world. Thanks to our presenting sponsors Cafe Spice, Cedar’s, Crofter’s Organic, Garden of Life, Guayaki, Justin’s, Late July Snacks, nuun, O.N.E.

What’s a Virtual Run?
A “Virtual” 10K Run happens on your time, anywhere you are! We work in the global community and now you can run with supporters all over the world who support our work. You can complete the 10K at your own pace over the 5 days of the event, or knock it out all at once! With your registration, you’ll be automatically entered to win prizes from our run sponsors. The first 250 runners to register and purchase an event tee shirt will receive a limited edition nuun hydration x WPF water bottle for free!
Can anyone participate?
Yes! We welcome bikers, hikers, paddlers, and everyone in between. The beauty of a virtual run is that we can have supporters running all over the planet in support of Whole Planet Foundation.
Once registered, you will receive a welcome email with instructions on how to submit your race information if you’d like to have your photos or videos shared on Whole Planet Foundation social media channels. Otherwise, we trust you!
