Race, Raise, Celebrate. Virtually.

Lace up your sneakers and join us this summer for the 2021 PNC Chicago Bears VIRTUAL 5K and Kids Dash. We're inviting Bears fans across the country to come together to run their favorite 5K course. A portion of every paid registration for the PNC Bears Virtual 5K and Kids Dash will be automatically donated to Bears Care, the team's charitable arm, and participants can also help raise additional funds to support COVID-19 recovery efforts and community revitalization in Auburn Gresham.

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? Everyone and anyone can participate in the PNC Bears Virtual 5K, and we'll ship the swag straight to you. Please follow all local health and safety guidelines while completing your run. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other runners whenever possible.

Register and complete your 5K run anywhere, any time before July 31st, 2021.
