The Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K benefits the Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation.
The 2020 VIRTUAL Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K is a great alternative to a LIVE event and is a great way to stay fit and active while “sheltering in place”.
This “race” allows registrants to safely participate and complete the race on their own.
All virtual participants will receive a 5-inch finisher medal, a gender-specific technical shirt, and a race bib. Half Marathoners also receive a custom 13.1 Kyle Miles charm to attach to the Finisher medal. Definitely a cause and race swag worth running for!
All proceeds from this event benefit the Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation, a non-profit foundation that is dedicated to the development of future leaders in our next generation of law enforcement.
*All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
** Your run will be at your own risk.

All race participants (including 5K and 10K finishers) receive a 4-inch finisher medal and a gender-specific tech t-shirt while supplies last. Definitely a cause and race swag worth running for!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual run event is similar to a traditional running event except the participant completes it entirely on their own. There is not a required location that the event must be completed nor a mandatory time. You choose the race, distance, location, and time. AMPT virtual events create positive motivation by awarding each race participant with a bib, shirt, and finisher medal.
DO I HAVE TO RUN THE VIRTUAL MURPHY HALF MARATHON, 10K & 5K ON OCTOBER 18, 2020?
Nope. Run or walk your race anytime and anywhere. The LIVE race was rescheduled for October 18, 2020; therefore, most participants planned to run on this date anyway. Many Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K participants trained for this event and will run on October 18th as planned – VIRTUALLY, of course. However, you may chose your own time and place.
HOW DOES THE VIRTUAL RACE WORK?
Run or walk your race anytime and anywhere. Choose your time and place – trails, streets, neighborhood, treadmill, or wherever. Once you have completed your distance, simply submit your RESULTS, download your Finisher Certificate, and share your photos with everyone on social media. Be sure to use hashtag #VirtualMurphyMiles
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY RESULTS?
Once you complete your distance, simply go to our RESULTS PAGE. Choose your event from the drop-down menu, then enter your VIRTUAL confirmation number and last name. Record your time, upload a screenshot from your running app (optional), and then hit submit. Don’t forget to print your Finisher Certificate and share your photos with everyone on social media. Be sure to use hashtag #VirtualMurphyMiles. VIRTUAL race results for the 2020 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K must be submitted on or before December 31, 2020.
I TRIED TO SUBMIT MY RESULTS, BUT MY CONFIRMATION NUMBER IS INVALID. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Be sure to enter your 2020 AMPT Virtual Series Confirmation Number. If you originally registered for the LIVE event, your confirmation number changed when we switched you to the VIRTUAL event. Race Roster sent an email on September 18th with a new (VIRTUAL) confirmation number. The subject line of that email was titled “2020 AMPT Virtual Series – Event Confirmation.” When submitting your VIRTUAL RESULTS, please be sure to use the VIRTUAL SERIES confirmation number in that email. Your VIRTUAL SERIES confirmation number can ALSO be found on the receipt in your SWAG bag. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
