A pair of virtual running events are scheduled to happen over the next couple of weeks, including one hosted by the Hickory Crawdads. There is no assigned course or time to run, with the team instead asking all participants to complete a 5K at their own pace on the route they choose between Friday, May 29, and Sunday, May 31.

Runners should keep track of their progress via a fitness device or app and send the Crawdads their results on social media using the #CrawdadsVirtual5K hashtag. Following the race, participants will receive an email with a certificate to show off their completion of the inaugural Crawdads Virtual 5K.

There are two ways to participate in the Crawdads’ 5K event, including the basic package which costs $10 and includes registration for the event and a certificate of completion. Meanwhile, the MVP package costs $20 and consists of the event registration, a certificate of completion and two tickets to a future Crawdads home game.

Call 828-322-3000 or email Ashley Salinas at asalinas@hickorycrawdads.com for more information about the Crawdads Virtual 5K.
