The VIRTUAL Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K benefits the Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation.
The 2021 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.
We regret to report that the 2021 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will be VIRTUAL this year due to road construction along our race route. The North Maxwell Creek Road Replacement and Waterline Improvements project is not scheduled to be complete until mid year, pending no further project delays. AMPT Running is proud to offer a VIRTUAL option to those that still want to participate and earn that AWESOME swag! Run it anytime, anywhere. Now through November 1, 2021.
All virtual participants will receive a 4-inch 3D finisher medal, a gender-specific technical shirt, and a custom race bib. This VIRTUAL event is part of the AMPT Champ 5K & 10K Challenge and can serve as a great training run for your BIG 2021 race! 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.
About the Foundation
The Kyle Kucauskas Educational Foundation is a non-profit foundation that is dedicated to the development of future leaders in our next generation of law enforcement. In memory of Aaron ‘Kyle’ Kucauskas, a Murphy Police Sergeant who died in March 2013, the educational foundation provides educational assistance to students pursuing careers in the fields of law enforcement and/or criminal justice.

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 2021 VIRTUAL MURPHY HALF MARATHON, 10K OR 5K ON OCTOBER 2-3, 2021?
Nope. Run or walk your race anywhere or anytime now through December 31, 2021. Many VIRTUAL participants will train for this event; therefore, they will run it on Oct 2-3 as if it were a LIVE race. However, you may chose your own time and place. Just be sure to submit your 2021 RACE RESULTS on or before November 1, 2021.
HOW DOES THE 2021 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 2021 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 2021 RESULTS?
2021 Registrants – Once you complete your distance, simply go to our 2021 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 2021 Murphy Half Marathon, 10K & 5K must be submitted on or before November 1, 2021.
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.
