The 2021 event is capped at 20,000 participants.
For only $34 per person, your virtual 5K counts! All proceeds support Happy Little Tree-planting and preservation efforts in state parks.
This year, we're taking international registrations and providing some group discounts.
- We will be offering international registrations; however, an additional $24 will be added per international address (not per participant) to help with the additional shipping costs.
- If you have a group of 10 or more and the packets are shipping to the same address, contact Michelle Coss for a special promotion code.
Everyone who participates will be shipped a keepsake Happy Little T-shirt, commemorative bib and finisher's medal featuring a real Bob Ross painting. We encourage you to wear your T-shirt and bib while completing your 5K. Be sure to proudly wear your medal after completion.
Your race packet will be sent to you via the U.S. Postal Service prior to April 22, 2021. Tracking details will be emailed to you via the United States Postal Service.
