Epic Races proudly presents May the Fourth Be With You … a Virtual 4K, the race that celebrates with fans and wook-alikes everywhere. We encourage you to grab your favorite jacket or robe and either lace up in the Light on May 4th – or in the Dark, in which case we suggest a reflective helmet and cape – and head outside to complete your 4K at light speed.

AACR LogoMay is National Cancer Research Month. This May, we’re partnering with the American Association for Cancer Research whose mission is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, collaboration, funding, and advocacy. A portion of every entry is donated to the AACR to help combat cancer.

Every participant has the option to fundraise as well – raise $100 or more and you will receive an AACR tech t-shirt and medal in addition to your May the 4th swag!

Addresses outside the United States will be charged an additional $5 for postage.

  • WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?

Virtual Race Image

A “Virtual Race” is all yours! It can be done at any time and any location. You can run or walk. You can participate alone, with friends, co-workers, or even your pet. There are no parking problems. No crowds. No long port-a-potty lines. There is no start gun or nervous, pre-race chitchat with other runners. There is not even a starting line!
