Virtual 5K

Why a Virtual 5K? Because we are bigger than Columbia! MGC, the law firm behind the Long Run, has offices in five states across the Southeast. A virtual race ties those offices together, allowing our MGC family to get involved and raise money for the USO South Carolina. And – perhaps more importantly – the USO touches so many service members. These troops come from all over and their support systems live all over. The Virtual 5K is an opportunity to connect us all! Register for the Virtual 5K option at strictlyrunning.com and complete a 5K (3.1 miles) on your own anywhere/anytime between now and February 1, 2020. Once registered, you will receive a link to submit a screen shot of your completed 5K. All race shirts will be shipped after February 1, 2020.
