Run the Trails for the Whales Virtual 5K Fun-raiser!
July 26 @ 9:00 am - August 8 @ 5:00 pm$30
“Run the Trails for Whales” is the Center for Coastal Studies’ annual 5K through the beautiful Cape Cod National Seashore. This year due to Covid-19, our race is going virtual, so sign up TODAY to run, jog, walk or stroll 5K through your neighborhood!
All proceeds support the Center’s wide-reaching education programs. To register, visit
Step 1: Register to run or walk. You will receive an e-mailed confirmation number from our partners at Race Roster. This confirmation number will be used to upload your self-timed or app-timed race results. All participants will be entered into a drawing to win an ultimate adoption package that includes a virtual behind-the-scenes tour and the ability to name a sea turtle patient!
Step 2: If you like, encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to support you! Fundraising is recommended but not required. Every dollar raised goes to help marine wildlife, advance science, and teach about ocean conservation!
Step 3: From July 26th to August 8th, 2020, run or walk 5K. You can do this anywhere – your neighborhood, the beach, a local trail, Seashore bike trail, your treadmill! Please participate responsibly and maintain appropriate social distancing guidelines. Please only run or walk with others in your household. And feel free to bring along your favorite non-human running partner!
Step 4: During your run or walk, if you would like to time yourself, you can do so using the ASICS Runkeeper app OR your favorite timing app. ASICS has partnered with Race Roster to easily upload times. When you are finished running, simply go to our results page (link will be e-mailed to you), enter your last name and confirmation number or log in to your Race Roster account, and input your time. You may also upload a photo from Runkeeper or your timing app that confirms your time. That’s it!
Step 5: Check back on the results page to compare your times with others. Then, wait for your t-shirt to arrive in the mail!! If you like, share photos of your run on our Facebook page!
