**Race Update, 3/23/2020**
In keeping with our commitment to protecting the health and wellbeing of all event participants, including via “social distancing”, LifeLink Legacy Fund® & Lions Eye Institute for Transplant & Research are excited to announce that we have transitioned the Roar Through Ybor 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run from an in-person event to virtual participation only, including a NEW event hashtag of #RTYZeroK2020.
So what does that mean for YOU? Well, now we all have an opportunity to join #RTYZeroK2020 - the world’s shortest race! Join us on Friday, April 17 at 6PM and participate by running in your neighborhood, running with your dog, running on a treadmill at home, or don’t run at all! Don’t forget to proudly sport your event shirt while doing so, including on Friday, April 17th!
Please share your photos and videos on our event page throughout April using the hashtag #RTYZeroK2020!
Preparing for this race requires absolutely ZERO training! No longer do you have to abide by intense training schedules in the Florida heat. You can train while watching Netflix on your couch, while making dinner, or while working remotely. The only rules are to HAVE FUN and to support organ, eye, and tissue donation by running (or not) in this Zero-K race, which supports LifeLink Legacy Fund and Lions Eye Institute Foundation.
Race registration will remain open thru March 29th for those not yet registered. So don’t wait, sign up today and be part of this NEW and EXCITING spin on our Annual Roar Through Ybor in all its virtual glory! Sign up now at www.runsignup.com/RoarThroughYbor
All registered participants as of March 29, 2020 will receive an event t-shirt and finisher medal.
