With no official racecourse for this event, Chiefs fans throughout the country and all over the world can participate virtually with the option to complete the 5K however they choose, including running or walking in their neighborhood, in a local park, on a nature trail or from their treadmill.

Once participants complete the 5K, they're encouraged to take a photo in their Kansas City Chiefs or Red Friday Run presented by GEHA gear with their Red Friday flag and post on social media using #RedFriday between Friday, Sept. 9th and Sunday, Sept. 18th.
