How It Works:

  • Run from your own community to support Alternatives To Violence Project-CA! If you’re from out of the area and want to support our mission, you simply register on-line and select “Virtual Run”.
  • Once you receive confirmation, the next step is to make sure you prepare to run on the same day we are officially starting our event in Los Angeles (8:00 AM Pacific Standard Time).
  • If there are multiple participants in your area, you can form a team and decide which park or community to cover the same distance (5K or 3.1 Miles).
  • Aztlan Athletics will mail out your T-Shirt & Finisher Medal at least 1 week prior to the event with your Virtual Run bib to use the morning of the race.
  • Once you finish covering the distance, take a screen shot of your overall time and share it with our media manager at Ruben@AztlanEvents.Com .
  • We recommend no more than a 20 second tribute video on your support for AVP-CA and no more than 2 photos of you and your team. Ruben will then compile the media on our 2018 events collage to post on the site.
  • You will then be able to view your time on “My Results Page” by looking up your bib number or name.
  • How do I host a 5K for AVP-CA in my community?  Once you are able to build up to 200 participants in your area (within a 30 mile radius), Aztlan Athletics and the AVP-CA beneficiary will work with you to plan a chapter of the run on your community. So, Take The Challenge, Cover The Distance To Support The Cause.
