A VIRTUAL RACE?
Yes! Every year since 2012, Leslie Cohen Law PC has hosted a 5k fundraiser. In 2020, when the COVID-19 crisis led to race cancellations worldwide, virtual races gave us a fun and safe way to keep up our race training and stay connected with our community.
The ninth annual 310k will be held virtually from May 1st-16th, 2021, allowing participation all over the world. Participants can run or walk a 5k or 10k distance and upload their recorded results at our signup link. Proceeds will be donated to Public Counsel and the Public Counsel Debtor Assistance Project (DAP), which provides pro-bono law assistance to disadvantaged communities.
Leslie Cohen Law PC was an early adopter of the virtual race. We held two virtual races in 2020, and both attracted record donations and participation. Last year, In May 2020, we debuted the Keep Your Distance virtual 5k, with proceeds donated to Public Counsel. In July 2020, we hosted a second donation-based virtual 5k/10k to raise funds for Black Lives Matter Los Angeles. We are so excited to host our third virtual race!
HOW IT WORKS
Like the two races we held in 2020, the 2021 310k race will be held virtually. You'll run or walk on your own time, use a run-tracking app to record your time and distance, and submit your results at our registration link. Participants will have a two-week window to complete and submit their run, from May 1st to May 16th, 2021. The cutoff to submit your time is midnight PST on May 16th. All participants will receive finisher certificates!
You may participate as an individual runner or as part of a team (if you participate on a team, you will still be assigned an individual age group placement). Sign-ups are open for all-male, all-female, or co-ed teams of 5 or more runners. The fastest team in each category will be announced once the race results are finalized.
