The 5th Annual Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will take place LIVE on Saturday, June 24, 2023 at Murphy Central Park in Murphy, Tx. Proceeds benefit the Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation.
Location: Murphy Central Park
550 N Murphy Rd, Murphy, TX 75094
Explore some of the best trails and views in Collin County. All three courses are USATF certified and feature beautiful views of Murphy and Parker, Texas. The 5K run/walk is a scenic out-and-back course from the venue. The 10K and Half Marathon course takes runners along the streets of Murphy and through the peaceful country scenery of Parker. Runners will pass by the iconic Southfork Ranch, the setting for the 1980’s television show, Dallas. All race participants (including 5K and 10K finishers) receive a 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 2023 VIRTUAL MURPHY HALF MARATHON, 10K OR 5K ON JUNE 24, 2023?
Nope. Run or walk your race anywhere or anytime now through December 30, 2023. Many VIRTUAL participants will train for this event; therefore, they will run it on June 24, 2023 as if it were a LIVE race. However, you may chose your own time and place. Just be sure to submit your 2022 RACE RESULTS on or before December 30, 2023.
HOW DOES THE 2023 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 2023 RESULTS PAGE, download your Finisher Certificate, and share your photos with everyone on social media. Be sure to use hashtag #VirtualMurphyMiles
HOW DO I SUBMIT MY 2023 RESULTS?
Once you complete your distance, simply go to our 2023 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 2023 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K must be submitted on or before December 30, 2023.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE TO COMPLETE THIS VIRTUAL RACE?
Currently we have no limitations on age. We encourage all ages to take on our challenges and complete them.
DO I HAVE TO “RUN” THE VIRTUAL RACE?
Our challenges all have the same goal and the goal is to get you up and moving. It’s entirely up to you how you complete your race. So, whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood, or walk laps around a track, AMPT virtual races are an ideal way to train for other events and to stay active.
