2017 ASPCA Virtual 5K

The ASPCA Virtual 5K spring season has ended! COMING SOON: ASPCA Virtual 5K fall season with a race period in October  

Register for the ASPCA Virtual 5K and receive your exclusive medal along with race bib!

How does a Virtual 5K work?

The ASPCA Virtual 5K allows you to customize your fundraising experience and race at your own pace, in your own time. After registering, all you have to do is complete your 5K (3.1 miles) between June 10 and June 30. You can walk, run, swim, cycle, or use any other method or terrain you prefer—and you can even include your four-legged family members! If you choose to include your pet, be sure to add the option to receive a medal for him or her as well. The ASPCA Virtual 5K gives you the opportunity to get creative and stay active while you make a difference for animals.

Fundraising deadline to receive prizes is Friday, June 30

Don’t forget to share your accomplishment on social media. Make sure to use #ASPCAVirtual5K on all your posts. We can’t wait to see you all in your race medals!

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my race medal and bib?

ASPCA Virtual 5K race packets will be mailed out in July.

Where does the ASPCA Virtual 5K take place?

There is no 'set location' or specific time/date for the Virtual 5K to ensure team members from all across the country can participate from wherever they're located. You can complete the 5K (3.1 miles) in one day or over multiple days or weeks. Totally up to you!

Do I need to fundraise after I pay the registration fee?

Fundraising is not required for the ASPCA Virtual 5K, however, you will receive a fundraising page—and we encourage you to raise more funds for the animals! We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of homeless, abused and neglected animals. When you fundraise for the ASPCA, not only are you raising crucial funds to support our life-saving programs and initiatives, but you are also spreading awareness of the ASPCA’s mission to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. And there is no fundraising minimum—a gift in any amount is much appreciated and goes a long way in helping our animal friends.

What if I am unable to complete the 5K after I’ve signed up?

That’s okay! We do not require proof of the distance in order for you to receive your medal. We will send your medal, bib, and earned fundraising prizes regardless if you complete the 5K.

Where do donations made through my online fundraising page go?

Online donations made through your fundraising page go directly to the ASPCA. The donation amount will be shown on your page, and 100% of the contributions will be attributed towards your fundraising goal.
