Registration is Now Open For the Third Annual Gritty 5K Presented by Penn Medicine
Today, Flyers Charities opened registration for one of its marquee fundraising events, the Gritty 5K presented by Penn Medicine. The third annual run will be held on Saturday, November 6 both in person and virtually.
The unique 3.1-mile course starts and ends in the Wells Fargo Center Complex and will loop through the Navy Yard and once again feature fun, interactive activations. Prizes will be awarded to the “Best in Fur” runners and other unique categories.
The 2021 Gritty 5K will combine the typical in-person race format with an added virtual aspect so that fans can participate from anywhere in the world. Last year’s virtual edition saw runners from all 50 states and 10 different countries.
All participants will receive a long sleeve tech shirt, reusable tote and finishers medal.
Both in-person and virtual runners can register for the race here. The event will be conducted in accordance with all public health measures in place at the time of the race. Below is a message from the master of ceremonies himself:
