DESCRIPTION In its 12th year, Burn off the Bird is back to in-person (and virtual) racing! A family tradition in the Phoenixville region, this event brings out the best that Phoenixville has to offer. Bring out your family, extended family and friends for an in-person or virtual 5K Race, or a two-race back-to-back special between the 5k on Saturday and the Runegades' Leftovers Run (4.1 or Half Marathon distance) on Sunday Nov. 28. This event guarantees to help you digest that Thanksgiving Meal. What is a virtual race? For those who choose to compete in the event on their own, the virtual run can be completed anywhere and at any time between November 21st and November 28th. Sign up and gather your friends and family, decide on a route, and plan how you will celebrate after the run! 5K Registration – Each 5K registration comes with a premium T-shirt and custom medal if registered before November 1st! Run 3.1 miles between November 21st - 28th and submit your race time to our Results page (optional). Swag Details: All 5K participants who register before November 1, 2021 will receive a custom premium t-shirt and medal. We will have multiple early pickup options available- more details to come! Virtual Race Course Tips: You can choose to run on our Certified 5K Course in Phoenixville, or any other location of your choice! To map your own 5K (3.1 miles) we suggest using apps like Strava or Map my Run which are free and track runs with your phone’s GPS. On the Strava app is an option to purchase the premium access which is popular among experienced runners and comes with route suggests for runs. Map my Run also has suggested nearby routes included without the premium access. Some suggested places to run include Charlestown Park, Mount Misery Trailhead, Kimberton Park, and around the Phoenixville Area High School. We recommend to try out the app you plan to use before you decide to do the race. Always be safe and aware of your surrounding during your run. The Charity: Proceeds generated from the race benefit the Phoenixville Jaycees Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change in their communities.
