Woolly Trot Info from Rainlover:

It is the first ever Virtual 5K just for Fiber Lovers! All Knitters/Crocheters/Spinners are completely welcome and encouraged to join in. The Woolly Trot 5K!
Some Basics about the Woolly Trot 5K. 
• Participants have 1 Week to complete their run or walk and submit their time. May 24-May 30 
• There are no prizes based on speed of times, but prizes are going to be given by random number generator to those who submit their times. 
• There are options on the funding site to grab some cool swag, such as T-shirts, Drawstring Backpacks, and Race Medals! - (More items will be added if there is a large draw for them such as water bottles, tumblers, coffee cups, keychains, etc) 
• There options for sponsorship as well which is a great way to get some exposure for some fiber businesses. 
Why Virtual 5k?! 
• One of the best reasons for this virtual 5k, is that with a great knitting community online there are tons of folks all over the world that wouldn’t possibly be able to all get in one place to do a 5k. This options allows many of them to participate. 
• Peoples schedules can always be all over the place, so allowing people 1 Week to get their run in allows people to work out at their own pace or try to meet up with friends that might be local. 
• Not to mention weather (which we know can’t be controlled), either way - gym or outdoor, this option makes it easy to fit into most schedules.
Prize lists will be on Ravelry and Website for event if funding goals are met. Prizes will be accepted, but trying not to get to many until we get farther along, I would hate to not make the goals and upset people.
More information can be found at the funding page or by contacting me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my request and even more if you make a mention!
As a bonus - If we make our goal, I’d be happy to cover the cost of Participation/T-Shirt for the podcast mention if you are interested!
Thank you again so much for taking time to read.
