The Pistons Fit Virtual 5K Run is on!

The virtual 5K event will run from Aug. 24 to 30, and fans are encouraged to participate by doing the run wherever they choose.

“You can walk, run, or use a treadmill. The beauty of a virtual 5K run is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose,” the Pistons said in a statement.

Participants may use the Nike Run app to clock their times and submit photos of themselves completing the run on social media using the hashtag #PistonsFitVirtual5K.

Registration is $29 and includes a Virtual 5K Runner’s Box and an offer to a future Pistons home game. A portion of the proceeds will go toward PeacePlayers International.
