The City of Mount Dora is scheduled to host a Virtual 5k race in an effort to help residents stay active while still adhering to the COVID-19 social distancing order.
Residents can register online for the event which begins on May 1 and runs through to May 3.
Entrants will be given the freedom of choosing their own starting line whether it is on a treadmill or neighborhood street.
Participants can run or walk the given distance for the race and record their times and post them to social media with the hashtags #WeRunThisCity #MountDoraVirtual5K to receive a medal.
Medals will be mailed to participants several days after the event has been completed.
Participants can register by visiting Mount Dora’s official website. There is a $15 participation fee and a $7 fee to cover the cost of shipping the medal.
