The virtual race takes place the week of Sept 4th – 10th. You can complete your 5K in whatever way you like, whether that’s going for a jog, taking a leisurely stroll through nature, rowing, biking, or skateboarding. However you race, you’ll be out spreading awareness for International Bird Rescue and the bird species we care for.

Leading up to race week, participants are encouraged to help us fundraise to support the care of birds at our wildlife centers. Our goal this year is hit $30,000. Even if you aren’t in to racing, you can support our team by donating or starting your own fundraiser.

We can’t wait to race with you again this year!
