The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s
Virtual Fall 5K/10K/Half Marathon


By joining The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s 2021 Virtual Fall 5K/10K/Half Marathon,
you are helping close the gap on a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Runners and walkers of all levels, abilities and speeds are welcome!

Although we are virtual, the impact remains the same: 100 percent of the proceeds
go directly to MJFF’s programs to speed better Parkinson’s treatments and end the disease for good.  

The MJF Foundation also holds a spring virtual 5K/10K/Half Marathon.

Ready to get started?

Registration will officially close after event weekend.
All participants must register before September 17* to receive a participant packet in time for event weekend. (Those who register after September 17 may receive packet after the event.)

*International participants must be registered by September 3 to receive packet in time for event.

Registration for each Adult participant is $40 USD
Although fundraising is not required, we encourage all participants to raise additional funds. Your contributions go a long way: 100 percent of the proceeds go straight to high-impact research programs to speed a cure for Parkinson’s.

Please note, you must hit this benchmark by September 17 (September 3 for international participants) to guarantee
your shirts arrival by event weekend.

Participant Packets

Once you register you will receive a welcome packet in the mail. Welcome packets include your bib number and a note from your Race Directors/Sponsors. Shipments will begin in September.

Remember, participants who register after September 17  (September 3 International) may not receive their package in time for the event weekend.

Virtual Badges
Participants can earn digital badges along their fundraising journey by achieving a major milestone. Badges are awarded when you reach your fundraising goal, make a self-donation, become a team captain, and more (see the table below for a complete list of badge qualifications.) Digital badges will appear on your fundraising page so others can see your accomplishments!

Race-Day Preparations

You can run/walk outdoors or indoors, alone or with a group of friends/family. As always, remember to be smart, use your judgement and practice social distancing.
