How does a virtual running event work?
Participants select a distance, sign up and pay the registration fee. Participants will complete the distance at any time within 1 week but will allow runners to earn their medal from anywhere! After the virtual race, runners post their times and can then collect their finisher's medal. Runners will also receive their race swag for participating.
Online registration closes on Thursday, April 30th for our currently planned virtual event.
How do we record our times for the virtual race?
Send us a screen shot from your preferred running app. If you haven't already done so, download your favorite running app (many are free), complete your race, and send us a screen shot of the route with your completed distance and time. You may also enter your race results on our NEW! sign up webiste at HERE along with any photos you'd like to share with us!
Please email the screen shot to
by 11:59 pm on Saturday, May 8th, 2021.
Packet pickup will take place on Thursday, May 13th from 3pm - 6pm in the parking lot of Giesenbrau Bier Co. The address is 1306 1st St NE in New Prague.
Will you be awarding place medals?
Unfortunately, this would be extremely difficult to do. All participants will be able to choose their route and will have a weeks' time to complete the race. The difficulty of the route chosen, and the varying weather will be a big factor in how quickly a participant can complete their race.
Can kids still participate in the Kids Fun Run virtually?
Of course! If they choose to participate, the kids will still receive a shirt and ribbon.
Have additional questions?
Visit the FAQ page or contact us at with any questions and we will try to respond as soon as possible.
The New Prague Chamber Board of Directors and Staff want to thank the many people who are involved in this event each year including many departments within the City of New Prague, specifically the New Prague Police Department and North Memorial Ambulance for keeping our event safe and the NPFD for leading the pack. Thank you to our many volunteers, generous event sponsors, local businesses, vendors, spectators and runners! We could not host this fun community event without you.
