Yes! Every year since 2012, Leslie Cohen Law PC has hosted a 5k fundraiser.  This year, with the COVID-19 crisis leading to race cancellations all over the world, we needed to find a fun and safe way to keep up our race training while connecting with our community.  We set up this virtual 5k/10k race event to bring people together to fulfill what's important to us as runners: "Wherever we are, we run together."  We hope you will join this year's event!

All proceeds from this event will be donated to fund the critically important work of Public Counsel and the Public Counsel Debtor Assistance Project (DAP), which is working to assist indigent, marginalized, homeless and other vulnerable individuals during this unprecedented time. Read more about their work at or follow @public_counsel on Instagram.


This virtual race will run from now through Sunday, May 3. You can complete your 5k or 10k on your own time at any during during the race weekend. Record your results using your phone or a GPS watch, and submit your result on the registration site. The results posting window is open for 48 hours beginning Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 and ending Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 at midnight (PST). 



Submit your results, receive a finisher certificate and see how you rank against other runners!
