Event Details

Run, Race, Repeat!

Epic Races is excited to present The Leftovers Run- Virtual Edition!

We, the summer interns, have been working on a series of awesome projects this summer with Epic Races. After spending a lot of time in the storage room, we noticed a cornucopia of ‘leftover’ race swag. So we thought, why not bring Thanksgiving leftovers early! After a lot of counting and organizing, we are so excited to present our version of the annual Leftovers Run, but VIRTUAL edition!

Each sign up will receive a racing kit featuring some awesome ‘leftover’ swag from our previous races, however, this year there is an element of surprise… You could potentially receive anything from an Ugly Dog T-Shirt to an Ann Arbor Marathon medal!


We are excited to be partnering with Food Gatherers whose mission is to alleviate hunger and eliminate the impact it has on the community.

We want to continue our work to keep food on the table for people in our community. Every $5 of each sign up will go towards the Food Gatherers organization.

To learn more about Food Gatherers and ways you can donate click on the ‘Food Gatherers Truck’ icon above!

The Events

We will have 3 virtual event options for the Leftovers Run this year…

  1. 5K

    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!
