ANYWHERE you choose!
In recognition of World Autism Awareness Month, The Chase Academy is asking the businesses and residents of Volusia County to become a Super Hero by participating in our C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual Virtual 5K Run & Walk. Proceeds will benefit our C.A.P.E. Crusaders monthly donor program which facilitates The Chase Academy's Programs for Enrichment (C.A.P.E.). This program provides the funding required to enhance the learning experience for our students beyond the academics that are covered by tuition, both inside & outside of the classroom, through technology (Smartboards in classrooms, Ipads for elementary learning), cultural activities (ballet, music & theatrical performances, museum exhibits) & other enrichment activities (weekly music therapy, school garden, outdoor playground and Life Skills classes such as cooking) at no additional cost to our students' families.

How does the C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk Work?
The C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk is an event that participants will complete on their own. Participants can select a preferred running or walking location and complete their 5K distance at the mall, in your gym, on a track, around your neighborhood, on your treadmill ~ where ever you want! Once you complete your 5K distance, post a completion post on our C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk Facebook page.
Is there an official Facebook Page?
Yes, there is! Go to our C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk Facebook Event Page at https://www.facebook.com/events/647837359491364/ so you can join. It is a great way to connect with other participants as well as find motivation and support.
How will I be timed and where can I log my activity?
Fitness apps like Apple Health and wearables like Fitbit, Garmin, and Suunto watches are a great way to track your daily mileage. Officially, you can post your results in your account on runsignup.com/Chase5K. You can also post your time on our C.A.P.E. Crusaders 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk Facebook Event Page, so we can celebrate together.
Who gets a T-shirt and Medal?
Only runners who have successfully completed the registration and payment process by October 3rd are guaranteed a free race t-shirt and medal. We plan to mail out the T-shirts the week of October 19th.
When do I receive my swag?
This year we will be sending everyone a participation medal in lieu of swag bags. These will be going out the week of October 26th.

Can I participate in the event with my dog?
Since our event is virtual, we would love pictures of your furry friends in capes running with you!
Can I participate with a stroller?
Yes, just like your fur friends, we encourage pictures of your kids joining you!
I will be out of town on race day and not able to participate. Can I get my money returned?
We appreciate your race registration, and since we are doing it virtually, you can get a group of friends together in different parts of the country and run! There are no refunds.
Will the race be held if it's raining?
The race is a "rain or shine" event. All participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather, such as in a raincoat or hat. Umbrellas can pose a safety hazard to others, so please do not bring them.
Can I transfer my entry to someone else?
We have a strict NO REFUND & NO TRANSFER policy.
What if I have further questions?
If you have more questions you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will do their best to answer any questions you might have. The typical response time is 24-48 hours. You can also reach us via our chat option on Facebook.
