      SOS Miles for Meals Virtual 5K and 1 Mile Race - presented by Beaumont Health

      Schools Offer Support (SOS) is a nonprofit service organization that provides volunteer services and limited financial support to families within the Birmingham Public School (BPS) community who experience temporary needs. SOS was founded in 2008 by a group of BPS parents who wanted to work with students to build a stronger community through acts of kindness.  You can read more about our mission on our website.

      During this recent pandemic, many of our BPS families have been facing financial hardships.  Through generous donations to SOS, since the quarantine started in March, our organization has provided more than $40,000 in grocery gift cards for families in our community.  The need continues and we look to our fellow community members and organizations to help us raise funds to further our mission. 

      We have decided to hold a virtual run/walk fundraiser.  Given the continued need for social distancing, a virtual run seemed ideal.  Get out, get healthy, get exercise while staying safe.  You have ten days, from October 8th - October 18th to complete your run and compete for awards.

      What is a virtual race? - You select your race distance (1 mile or 5K) and run anywhere you choose between October 8th and October 18th, 2020.  

      Where do I run? - Anywhere!  You come up with a course to match the distance you select, 1 mile or 5K (3.1 miles).  We ask you to please remember to keep your distance from other people during these times.  You must run between the dates of October 8-18, 2020.  You then report the time you ran to this website.  

      How do I record my time? - Easy!  After registration you will be sent a link to submit times on this website.  Runs must be completed between October 8th and October 18th, 2020.  Times must be submitted by October 18th. To be eligible for awards you need a verifiable time.  A verifiable time is recorded through many 3rd party apps, such as Garmin, Strava, and MapMyRun.  After completing your run you can download a GPX or FIT file and will be able to upload the file to this website.  Please note, you can just submit a time, you just will not be eligible for awards.    

      T-shirts are available for pick up only in Birmingham, MI.  Packet pick up location and dates to be announced.

      Want some SOS spirit wear?  It is available for purchase, through Bloomfield Sports Shop.
