The Big Ten Network Big 10K, an annual event where runners support their favorite Big Ten university and raise money for charity, will be virtual, according to a release.
Racers are encouraged to participate in the race between July 26 and Aug. 1 and walk or run a 5K or 10K. The registration cost is $20 and each participant receives a Big Ten-themed headband, certificate, bib and school-specific shirts. There will be no gender or age-group awards because the times will all be self-reported.
The event will benefit ALIVE Rescue, a Chicagoland-area animal shelter, Special Olympics Chicago, a sports and athletic training competition for people with intellectual disabilities, and Feeding America, the country’s largest hunger-relief organization.
