2020 “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K”

Due to COVID-19, Governor Northam has ordered a “shelter in place” order for Virginia until June, 10, 2020.  This year the Boxer Brief 5K has transformed to the “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K” – an entertaining event to help our community, and neighborhoods across the country, safely participate. The virtual walk/run will be held over a two day period to encourage proper distancing and adherence to state and local guidelines. The 2020 event is not supporting physical gatherings and is intended to support social connections through physical distancing.

Venue:  Anywhere! Walk or run your 3.1 miles anywhere. Be mindful about physical distancing if you choose to be in a small group under 10 team members. The landing site for all (pre, during, and post) event photos can be posted and shared on the  Facebook event page.  Just click that you are “Going”, share your images, and use the hash tag #boxerbriefstayaway5K.

Registration continues to be open for the June 6th AND June 7th virtual event.  Did you previously register before COVID?  No worries, you do not need to re-register for the new event. All registered participants prior to May 24th will receive a 2020 Signature T-shirt, Race Bib, and Finish Line towel prior to the event. We will ship the race t-shirt and race bib to registered participants outside of the Richmond, VA region. Shipping begins on May 25th to ensure adequate on-time delivery.

Not interested in a Signature T-shirt, Race Bib, nor Finish Line towel, yet want to participate to help us support cancer patients and survivors? You can still join us!  Just dress your buns and go out to run (walk). We would love a donation if you feel ‘moved’.

Packet Pickup:  Pre-race packet pickup will be a drive through at Stony Point Fashion Park on Friday, June 5th from 3:00pm – 6:00pm and Saturday, June 6th from 8:00am – 11:00am.  Just follow the cones and signs to the parking lot destination. Music will be pumping and energy will be high!  Stay in your cars to help with physical distancing.  You may pick up items for other participants to limit exposure. Please email info@hcb2.org if you are picking up for a group. We want to make sure you have your Signature race T-shirt, Bib and Finish Line towels.

Additional Info:  The “Boxer Brief 5K” has been HCB2’s largest educational and awareness raising event for colorectal cancer prevention since 2013.  With over 700 participants, 60 volunteers, and countless spectators, we have had a lot of fun at the Run to Save Buns! 2020 5K event will be different, butt gives us the opportunity to raise awareness in your neck of the woods.

The 2020 START:  Only the small HCB2 event committee will have an official start on Saturday, June 6th at 8:00am at Stony Point Fashion Park, butt feel free to run/walk your 3.1 miles anytime, anywhere during the weekend. We will be live on Facebook at the 8:00am start to kick off the event. Post photos of you at your neighborhood start line at the “Boxer Brief Stay Away 5k” Facebook event page.  Don’t forget to use the hash tag #boxerbriefstayaway5K

TEAMS:  We wanted to highlight Teams in 2020!  Team captains, post photos of your Team Hero at the Boxer Brief Stay Away 5K  facebook event page.  We plan to still award the Best Boxers and Best Team Name, and all teams will be recognized.
