WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?


BTN is going VIRTUAL for the

9th annual BTN Big 10K on July 26!


BTN is going VIRTUAL for the 9th annual BTN Big 10K ! That means you can participate in a 5k or 10k race from wherever you live! Test your fitness, enjoy a race experience and represent your favorite Big Ten school while giving back to some great charities!

All ages and fitness levels are welcome! Run or walk inside, outside or on a treadmill.

Once you complete your race, come back to our website to submit your times and print your finisher’s certificate. You can do this race anytime between July 26 and August 1. Please note all times are to be self-reported on the honor system. No age-group or gender awards will be handed out. We’re walking/running to show our Big Ten Pride!

As always, participants in the VIRTUAL BTN Big 10K will receive a school-specific race shirt, bib and finisher’s certificate. This year BTN will also be giving participants a Big Ten-branded running buff/headband representing all 14 schools. Big Ten fans will also have access to a VIRTUAL BTN Big 10K Spotify playlist which includes school fight songs and other music that you can play while training or racing.

BTN will be supporting three great charities this year: Feeding America, Special Olympics Chicago, and Alive Rescue. Race registration for the 10k and 5k this year will be $20 with an option to donate directly to the BTN Big 10K charities during registration.

We’re looking forward to (virtually) seeing you this year!
