The Hollywood Holiday Virtual 5K and Photo Contest puts you in charge of the race! This is a fun and active way for families and friends to come together, have fun and dress up in festive attire and celebrate the Holiday Season while social distancing... Just make sure to take a picture of you and your crew in that awesome festive attire. Presented by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts, this fun and exciting challenge puts a uniquely Hollywood twist on the virtual 5k activity.
Complete the registration form below before the deadline on Wednesday, December 16th. Upon submission of your application a member of the Special Events Staff will confirm receipt via email within 2 business days • That email will contain your registration number and a printable race bib for you to print at home, decorate and attach to yourself on the day you complete your race.
How it Works
Show us your creativity! Select a photogenic Start/Finish point within the City of Hollywood. Then, using your favorite fitness tracking app, plan a unique 5k route (3.10 miles) that brings you back to the start.
Run or walk at your own pace and track your time. Once you’ve completed your run or walk, snap a picture of yourself (or have a friend take it for you) posed in front of your selected start point. Be sure that your race bib and registration number are visible.
Respond to your confirmation email with your finishing time and attach the picture you took. You must submit your time and picture by Monday, December 28th.
All winners will be posted on the PRCA event subpage and the City of Hollywood’s Facebook Page. Winning medals will be mailed to the top 3 finishing times in each of the following age groups (10 & under, 11 – 20, 21 – 30, 31 – 40, 41 – 50, 51 – 60, 61 and older). Judges will review all photos submitted and medals will be awarded to the top 3 photos in the following categories; Best Solo Finishing Photo, Best Group Finishing Photo, and Best Decorated Race Bib. All participants who complete the race will receive a commemorative coin to add to your Virtual Event coin collection.
