Event Info

Because of concerns around the COVID-19 virus, we are holding Outpace Poverty as a virtual event this year. 

Here’s how our virtual race works:

Register and start recruiting your virtual team

 Get family and friends to commit to some fresh air, healthy exercise and “go the social distance” with you to Outpace Poverty in our area. We can cheer each other on via the Outpace Poverty team sites and on social media. Send us a selfie or short video showing how you are training and why you are running with us – and post it up on your own social media pages. We’ll like, share, heart and retweet it!  Be sure to follow our Facebook Event Page!

Run or walk

your 5K...

...on a path, in a park, on a track, on a treadmill – anywhere! There’s no specific route: just be safe and have fun with it. If you and your team decide to run at the same time, be sure to
allow at least 6 feet between team members…. or FaceTime while you walk/run in different places! You can do this any time, just complete your run/walk by May 31, 2020. 

Send us your results!

 Send us your virtual results (use any app to track your miles/time) We’ll publish results so you can see how you stack up with other “committed soles” who are dedicated to ending poverty in our area. 

We’ll send you your swag bag!

 T-shirts, runners’ fanny pack, medals and other swag will be sent to you once we receive them from our supplier.
Shirts and belts are guaranteed for registrations received by May 15. It’s our goal to have them to you by the end of May.

Together, we strengthen families, put people to work and transform communities.
The most recent Missouri Report on Poverty cites five key factors that impact people living in poverty: food, housing, health, education, family and economic security.
We work to improve every single one of those factors for people we serve. Emergency assistance and nutritional education helps hungry families. Housing assistance and resources help people find and keep stable homes. And our Employment Services is placing hundreds of people in jobs that pay livable wages. Each service is paired with education and support designed to break the cycle of poverty – permanently.
