Please join us for the 5K Run/Walk fundraiser for the Corinth Rotary Club to benefit the many civic and charitable causes sponsored by this club. 

For the 2021 race, there are both virtual and in-person options available. See below.

This is a relatively flat, USATF Certified 5K (5000 Meter)  race through the historic downtown commercial and residential areas of Corinth, Mississippi.  Beginning in the Downtown Business District, the race takes the participants through the shaded tree-lined streets of the older residential neighborhoods of this beautiful small city, before concluding at the finish line adjacent to the oldest church building in Corinth.
The race is professionally timed by Best Times. Awards will be given to the top three participants in 41 brackets divided by age on the day of the race and gender, as well as overall top finishers.

There is a virtual race option for those who can't participate in person. Separate results will be provided for virtual runners and on site participants. You can download our app and your results will post on our site. Virtual participants not using the app will be on the honor system. They can manually update their time and receive a shirt. Please see our "Virtual FAQ" below.

Q: Do I have to be in a certain city/state to do this event?
A: Anyone can do the VIRTUAL Austin's Shoes Run With Rotary 5K wherever you are, on your time between Saturday March 27th and Saturday April 3rd!  This is great way for families and friends to stay active together, even if you don't live close to each other.  However, if you are registered for  Austin's Shoes Run With Rotary 5K In Person event, you will need to toe the "Start Line"  at 515 Fillmore in Corinth MS  on April 3, 2021 @ 8:30 AM.
Q: Do I have to run or can I walk?
A: You can run, walk, runwalk ... as long as you are purposefully moving and logging miles, it counts.
Q: Do I have to complete the 5K or 1 mile at one time?
A: Yes, since this is a "timed" event, you will need to complete the full  5k during one activity ... not multiple combined activities.
Q: Do I have to put in my miles outside?
A: Preferably you will be able to go outside so you can use our Live GPS tracking app, RaceJoy (see RaceJoy How To below). but if you need to complete your miles inside (on a treadmill, at the gym, etc.) that will be possible with the alternate reporting option.
Q: How do I record my miles/time?
A: The easiest and best way will be to utilize the RaceJoy app (see below)  ... you simply hit start on the app and it will register your time in results when you complete 5K or 1 mile.  But, if you are unable to carry your phone; will be in a location with poor cell service; or need to complete your miles inside or on a treadmill, then there will be alternate ways to report your time.  You can upload directly to the RunSignUp system.  Just go to the Results tab on this webpage and choose "Submit Virtual Results". Virtual results will be presented in a format similar to in person results, but for recognition only.


Available for Apple and Android devices.
