Race, Support, Celebrate. Virtually.

Lace up your sneakers and join us July 10-12 in the first-ever PNC Chicago Bears VIRTUAL 5K and Kids Dash. This summer we're inviting Bears fans across the country to come together, even when we're apart, to support our communities most in need, all while running their favorite 5K course. This year, a portion of every paid registration for the PNC Chicago Bears Virtual 5K and Kids Dash will be automatically donated to Bears Care, the team's charitable arm, to support local communities and COVID-19 relief.

Run, walk, or stroll along your favorite course – maybe it's a trail through a park, around your neighborhood, or even on a treadmill in your home. The PNC Bears Virtual 5K can be completed anywhere you choose! Want to include your tiniest baby Bear in a stroller or maybe your fur-baby loves to run with you? This year everyone and anyone can participate in the PNC Bears Virtual 5K, and we'll ship the swag straight to you. Please take care to follow social distancing guidelines while completing your run. Maintain a safe distance (at least 6ft of space) between yourself and other runners whenever possible.

Register and complete your 5K run anywhere, any time before July 12th, then join thousands of fellow Bears fans for a virtual post-race party to celebrate!

Go the Extra Mile for Bears Care and COVID-19 Relief

Runners are encouraged to create personal fundraising pages to further support Bears Care. Bears Care will continue its ongoing commitment to underserved communities, investing 100 percent of participant fundraising in areas impacted at disproportionately high rates by COVID-19. All fundraising efforts will benefit programs that expand safe access for families to food, medication and health supplies during this critical time. Additionally, funds will support new efforts to address underlying inequalities in healthcare and access to economic opportunities, which have long plagued these neighborhoods and their residents. Runners who raise the most funds will be eligible to win Bears prizes. Click here for more info.

5k Event Details

How / When do I get my packet?

All event packets will be mailed to the address provided during registration. Be sure to register before July 1st to ensure your packet reaches you in time for the virtual post-race party. Racers who register after July 1st will still be mailed a packet, but please note it may arrive after July 12th. Packets will be shipped out individually in batches based on shirt size rather than by address, so packets for racers within the same household may not arrive together.

What do I do when I finish the run?

Once you have finished your virtual run you can log in to your EnMotive account and log your results. After you have logged your results you will be able to upload photos to share your experience with other runners and view and download your Finisher's Certificate. Can't finish your run by July 12th? That's okay! Runners can log their results and download a Finisher's Certificate through the end of July.

Check out how you stack up against other runners by viewing the race results page.
