Join us for the AVIXA Foundation Virtual 5K in conjunction with InfoComm 2020 Connected! It’s the ultimate way to run/walk with the AV community while socially distancing. Results for the top three women and top three men will be announced during InfoComm Connected on June 18.

Complete your run/walk ANYTIME after entering. Just make sure you submit it within the submission window, which runs 4am June 16 (PT) to 9pm June 17 (PT). Simply record your race using your favourite run tracking app or GPS watch, snap a screenshot and a finish-line selfie, and upload it to the finishers' gallery.

Proceeds will go toward the AVIXA Foundation, which develops and supports programs designed to equip the next generation of audiovisual professionals with knowledge and skills to help them succeed. It is our ultimate mission to help bridge the skills gap in the AV workforce.

We see a bright future ahead. One where our industry pulls new employees from traditional and non-traditional sources alike. To that end, we will continue our quest to showcase this creative, vibrant profession in any way we can. To learn more about the AVIXA Foundation, visit the website link at the top of this page.

Frequently asked questions

How do I record my activity?
To record your activity, you will need to download an activity tracking app that is able to track your distance and time. Popular apps include Strava, Nike Run Club, MapMyRun, and RunKeeper, and are available in the app store for free on your phone. For more details on our favourite tracking apps check out our blog post.
Are there time cutoffs for Virtual Events?
Virtual Events are fantastic in that they can be completed at any pace and location. The only restriction on how long you take is the event submission window, which is generally 48 hours, giving you lots of time to complete your event.
Can I go further than the race distance?
Yes, you can complete a distance further than what the event requires. All you need to do is input distance travelled and time, and we will adjust it down to the time it took to complete the event distance.
Can I do my distance over a few days and break it up and add up my total time to submit?
Unfortunately, while you can complete the distance at any pace, it must be completed in one go. In order to make the virtual experience as close to a physical event as possible, please submit your total elapsed time that it took to complete your chosen distance rather than total moving time. This will take into account any breaks or stops taken during completion, and mimic the experience of a physical event.
If offered, when will the post-race goodies be mailed?
Any race goodies or merchandise will be posted by the Event Organiser as soon as possible after the event. Please contact the Event Organiser if you have further enquiries about race swag.
Can I take part at any time of day?
You will find the event start time on the event page. Once the event starts, you can complete the event any time within the submission window. Make sure to upload your result and picture within the submission window to verify your results!
