Popular Event

All suffragists and suffragents, runners and walkers, are invited to participate in the Suffrage Scramble 5K Virtual Event!

Run or walk a fun 5K in your neighborhood to commemorate 100 years of the 19th Amendment!

Friends, organizations, clubs and corporations are invited to form groups to commemorate the Women’s Suffrage Centennial 1920-2020! Wear your sash, and “Take the Pledge” to become an informed voter! Gather donations if you wish for additional support to complete the legacy.

The motto of VSCA is Hard Won—Not Done. Event proceeds and your extra donations will be sent to the Rutland NAACP to help fund expansion of voter registration, education and access for historically disenfranchised racial groups.

The Suffrage Scramble 5K, presented by Central Vermont Runners, is produced in conjunction with the Vermont Suffrage Centennial Alliance. Led by the League of Women Voters of Vermont, the VSCA is a growing statewide alliance of volunteers, who in 2020, will commemorate and celebrate 100 years of women voting in the United States. VSCA is committed to informing Vermonters of the history and outcomes of women’s suffrage and engaging them in the ongoing quest for equal rights and citizenship.

We are also celebrating ½ century of women being allowed to participate in road racing! It took 50 years after women gained the right to vote until they gained the right to run in the Boston Marathon, the New York City Marathon or pass Title IX to allow access to running teams in schools and universities. One century with the Right to Vote, one/half century with the Right to Run!

Complete your run by August 15th and upload your results and photos by midnight the 16th to see how you and others did in the event. And remember to vote on August 11 in Vermont!

How to complete a Virtual Event

Participating in a virtual event means you can complete the distance at any time within the event timeframe in a location of your choice.
Here's what you need to do:


Preparing your virtual event

  • Secure your virtual spot in the event by booking your ticket
  • Plan your ideal route
    Make sure the route is at least the event length and as traffic free as possible
  • Download a distance tracking app
  • Ensure your phone and/or GPS watch is fully charged

During your event

  • Record your activity on a tracker and take a screenshot
    This can be either a phone or a GPS watch.
  • Complete your activity in the designated event completion timeframe
  • Make sure you go the event distance
    But don't worry if you go a bit further, we'll calculate your finish time.
  • Take a Finisher's Photo to share with your fellow finishers

Submitting your result

  • Head back to this event page to submit your results
    Make sure to submit your results within the event completion timeframe
  • Upload a screenshot of your activity tracker or GPS watch to verify your results
    You can still participate and submit results without this, but we won't be able to verify your results.
  • Provide your finish time and overall distance
    If you go further than the race distance, we'll adjust your time down to the correct distance based on your pace.
  • Share your Finisher's Photo on the Finish Line gallery
    Get featured on our Finish Line where you can celebrate your achievement and inspire others to get active.

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!
