With the CDC’s recommendation to maintain physical distancing, individuals and families are still encouraged to keep moving through COVID-19. The 6th Annual GRHS 5K Scrub Run/Walk, scheduled for Saturday, June 13, 2020, will “run” a little different this year. The event will be held virtually, and not as a large group. 

The rules of the Virtual Scrub Run are simple.

On Saturday, June 13, be active any time of the day. You can do this alone or with your family.  There are many ways to be active so do what motivates you. Run, walk, hike, or bike the distance that challenges you! Your distance can be one mile, a 5K, or even a half-marathon, it’s up to you! Stay at least 6 feet apart from members of other households.

There is no cost to participate in the virtual event and we are doing a drawing this year. To be entered in the drawing, take a picture and post it to your Facebook page. You must tag Glacial Ridge Health System and use the hashtag #scrubrun2020. BONUS: Double your chances to win by wearing scrubs or your Scrub Run t-shirt from a previous year!

If you do not have a Facebook account and want to be included in the drawing, call 320.634.2274 to make alternate arrangements. If you win, you are consenting to have your picture posted to the GRHS Facebook page and website.

Winners will receive prizes from businesses who helped with our previous Scrub Run events. You could win a $30 gift card to Screen Prints Plus, Lakeside Ballroom, or Captain’s Bar and Grill.  In case of bad weather, the rain date is Sunday, June 14. Winners of the drawing will be announced on Facebook on Monday, June 15.

The GRHS 5K Scrub Run was inspired by Dr. Mark Johnson because he was always a strong advocate for living a healthy and active lifestyle. The background of this event has always been family-friendly. The Scrub Run committee will miss seeing you in person at the gathering of friends before and after the fun run, and we look forward to seeing everyone and giving high fives again at the 7th Annual Scrub Run in 2021. With a little determination, whatever your health and fitness goals are, you can achieve them.
