Access the 2020 Janney 5K & Fun Run opening ceremony. Hear from local dignitaries and members of our Janney community to kick off this year’s virtual event! You can sing, you can stretch, you can get inspired as you get ready for your run. While we certainly wish we were all together lined up in front of school, we hope you get a little inspiration from this short video clip.
You can now access the 2020 Janney 5K & Fun Run closing ceremony. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the opening ceremony.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Janney 5K & Fun Run is now a VIRTUAL RACE. The switch to a virtual event allows us to still hold a race that is encouraging, fun, and uplifting despite the unique circumstances. You will still be able to pick up your race t-shirts & masks and swag items from Janney Elementary School. This is a difficult time for everyone, but we believe we can continue to celebrate our school and community in a safe and fun way by joining virtually in our annual tradition. There will be a virtual live opening and closing award ceremony.
Let's come together as a community to show our support for Janney teachers, staff, and students, and the greater Tenleytown/AU Park community through a safe and fun virtual race. The Janney PTA thanks you for supporting the race and hopes you can join us virtually.
Runners who sign up for a virtual race register online and simply choose a starting line, whether it's a treadmill or a neighborhood street or a route provided to you. You run the race distance, and upload your finishing time. The window for completing your run will be November 14 - 21, 2020. All run times must be submitted by 11:59PM on November 21, no exception!
You can sign up to run the Janney 5K USATF-race certified or Janney 1K Fun Run course using the RaceJoy app, which will guide you through the courses and cheer you on. You can also run your own 5K and Fun Run that is appropriately distanced, timed, and uploaded to this website using any other mobile running application or you can just manually enter your time.
RaceJoy is a free mobile app that provides real-time GPS tracking of your actual location and running route. It measures your distance, cheers you along the way, and tells you when you are done. It will work with the certified traditional Janney 5K & Fun Run courses or any other course you choose to run. Participants must carry their phone to take advantage of RaceJoy’s features. You will get additional details about downloading the RaceJoy app and using it to support your race once you register.
