Running On Faith 2020 VIRTUAL 3K Foot Race

BCS Running on Faith VIRTUAL Fun Run and Fundraiser

Billings Catholic School is proudly hosting the annual Running On Faith 3K footrace on Sunday, September 13, and we invite you to participate! While this year’s Running on Faith may look a little different than in the past, we would love your participation more than ever. Join us for the 2020 VIRTUAL 3K Running on Faith. For the health and safety of our families, students and staff, we will not race together this year at Rose Park. Instead, we will support BCS in a new way – with a VIRTUAL 3K event.

Running on Faith allows families the opportunity to raise money by gathering pledges from friends, family and neighbors to support the student who is participating. To sponsor a jogger online, register for the race, or download a pledge sheet, click the links to the right. A free t-shirt will be given to all participants who register by the end of the day on Friday, September 4.

What is a virtual 3K?

A virtual run/walk is the same as any other 3K. The difference is that you can walk or run at any location, at any pace, inside on a treadmill or even in another town or state! All you need to do is  join in completing a 3K or longer run or walk at any point on Sunday, September 13. Send a picture or short video documenting your participation to bcs@billingscatholicschools.org. All photos and videos will be featured on the BCS Facebook page!

The RAMS arch will be set up at Saint Francis Catholic from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday, September 13, for any families who want to take a picture under the arch. Families are also welcome to run the traditional 3K route around SFC and Rose Park. We encourage all participants to remain socially distanced from other groups.

T-Shirts will be pre-ordered for everyone who registers by the end of the day on Friday, September 4. PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO REGISTER BY THE END OF THE DAY ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, TO GET A FREE T-SHIRT! This year there will be no ‘extra’ t-shirts ordered and no extra shirts will be available on the day of the event or at either of the schools. If you want a t-shirt, you need to register! T-Shirt Pick Up will be Saturday, September 12, at Billings Central Catholic High School between 12:00pm and 3:00pm, or Sunday morning, September 13, from 9:00-10:30am at Saint Francis Catholic near the RAMS arch.

Every 3K participant who sends a picture or video of themselves participating in the event will be entered to win prizes. There will be a variety of SFC and BCCHS spirit wear prizes, with the grand prize being a $250 fundraising credit!
