Back on My Feet 5-Miler - Now Virtual!

Saturday, March 28, 2020 through Saturday, April 4th, 2020

The Stroehmann Bakeries Back on My Feet 5-Miler is now a virtual event!
Originally supposed to take place in downtown Philadelphia, due to events beyond our control (looking at you COVID-19), we are forced to cancel the in-person event and move to a virtual space. 


$40 - Click here to join us as a virtual participant through April 4th.  

Please note! T-Shirts are *not* included in the registration fee -- you have the option to purchase a unique event t-shirt during the registration process! You will also have the option to buy a member a t-shirt, and sponsor their registration.
UPDATE AS OF 3.26.30: T-Shirts are officially sold out! Thank you!

Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable. 


So You've Registered for the 5-Miler. Now What?

STEP 1: JOIN US ON STRAVA! and click "I'm in" on the Stroehmann Bakeries Back on My Feet 5-Miler event

STEP 2:  Put your favorite Back on My Feet tee or lucky singlet on, get out (or stay in on the treadmill) and track your miles on Strava anytime March 28th - April 4th. Be sure to pin on your race bib -- special thanks to Eric Okdeh and the Art Class at the Kirkbride Center in Philadelphia for designing our beautiful bib! 

STEP 3: After your race, remember to label your activity with #BoMF5Miler. Pair it with a selfie, a photo of your watch or any other memorable photo from your run.

STEP 4: Submit your results to our timer, LinMark Sports, by April 4th. We’ll be giving out prizes to the top 3 male and female finishers and our top 3 fundraisers. PLUS, there will be fun social media contests you can participate in (more info below!).

A Note to our Volunteers: 

Back on My Feet’s top priority is the health and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff, communities and event attendees. As you likely heard, the city of Philadelphia and state of Pennsylvania have officially discouraged any events with participation over 250 attendees. Therefore, we have decided to change the event into a virtual race so that folks can still participate in a social distancing manner, while still coming together as a community to support our mission. As such, we will no longer need volunteers for race day. We appreciate those of you who signed up your groups, friends, and family to support Back on My Feet in this manner and hope that you will consider joining us at a future Back on My Feet event!
