RUN IN THE COKE 10K VIRTUAL RACE THIS SEPTEMBER


YOU run where YOU are on YOUR best 10K course the week of September 26, 2020

CORINTH, MISS. (August 1, 2020) - Corinth Coca-Cola Classic 10k Run is now a VIRTUAL event. You can select a race route of your choice and run your 10k any time the week of September 26th, 2020. Starting time is between 4:00 a.m. CDT Saturday, September 26th through 12:00 p.m. CDT Saturday, October 3rd. The race was taken to a virtual format to observe Covid-19 social distancing for runners and attendees.
Runners will simply download a free RaceJoy® race app to smartphones. After clicking start to begin the race, the app will send progress updates like elapsed time and pace to a runners' phone at regular intervals. Then the app will automatically record data when runners complete the proper distance and cross a virtual finish line. After completed running or walking the 2020 Coke 10k Virtual Race, runners will be mailed a custom designed Coke 10k tee shirt and your Coca-Cola bottle finisher's medal. If for any reason they cannot complete the 2020 virtual race, participants will still receive a Coke 10k tee shirt.

The custom 2020 tee shirt design was commissioned specifically for this race. The shirt depicts an American flag with Coca-Cola bottles as the stripes and Coke bottle caps as the stars. Nothing says America like Coca-Cola, so it was a perfect concept for this race's participant tee shirt.

The traditional metal Coke bottle medal and neck ribbon will be awarded to each runner who completes their 10k. Please note, there will be no prize money, age group awards, or trophies for this virtual race.

The cost to run and receive a tee shirt and medal is $30. Registration ends September 25, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. CTD. SIGN UP LINK: https://runsignup.com/Race/Register/?raceId=26799
