The Michael J. Fox Foundation's
Virtual 5K/10K/Half Marathon

Friday, May 7 to Sunday, May 9

By joining The Michael J. Fox Foundation's 2021 Virtual 5K/10K/Half Marathon,
you are helping close the gap on a cure for Parkinson's disease. 

Runners and walkers of all levels, abilities and speeds are welcome!


Ready to get started?

Registration
Registration will officially close on Thursday, May 6 at midnight.
All participants must register before Monday, April 19 to receive a welcome packet in time for event weekend. (Those who register after April 19 will receive packet after the event.)

Registration fees vary based on the distances you pick over the Three-Day weekend. 

One Distance (5K or 10K or Half Marathon): $40 USD
All Three Distances (5K, 10K, and Half Marathon): $60 USD

 
Although fundraising is not required, we encourage all participants to raise additional funds. Your contributions go a long way: 100 percent of the proceeds go straight to high-impact research programs to speed a cure for Parkinson's.
 
Fundraising
You signed up because you support our mission to cure Parkinson's disease. Now, we need your help to raise additional funds for research. Check out our Fundraising Tips page to get started and earn your swag:

Individuals who raise $100 USD or more will receive
a limited MJFF 20th Anniversary T-Shirt. 

Individuals who raise $550 USD or more will receive
a MJFF branded item (to be announced.)


The top five team and individual fundraisers will be recognized on our website and awarded special prizes after the event date. 

Participant Packets
Once you register you will receive a welcome packet in the mail. Welcome packets include your bib number and other fun surprises from our sponsors. Shipments will begin late March.

Remember, participants who register after April 19 may not receive their package in time for the event weekend.


Virtual Badges
Participants can earn digital badges along their fundraising journey by achieving a major milestone. Badges are awarded when you reach your fundraising goal, make a self-donation, become a team captain, and more (see the table below for a complete list of badge qualifications.)
