All participants receive a gorgeous 2.75" diecast glow-in-the-dark Boston Terrier Medal.  It doesn't matter how fast or slow you go, and you can run, walk, cycle, swim or work out to earn your medal.  

Registration closes January 31st- or until we sell out of our 475 spots, and we're moving fast!   To earn your medal, please run anytime during the month of January and you will receive a medal "on your honor" for supporting the cause and getting some miles in.   No need to report your miles, we ship medals out as they're received every week, you will receive your medal as soon as we can get it to you!

The Medals - Glow In The Dark!

Celebrate 2017 and keep your fitness resolutions in style while saving the lives of Boston terriers in need!  This double sided, 2.75" diecast medal comes with gorgeous sateen ribbon and a fabulous matte black metal finish.

OH, did we mention it's GLOW IN THE DARK?  YES!

This medal is worth running for.  It will be the bright, shiny and fabulous piece to get you motivated through winter and help save Boston Terriers in the process!  

International Shipping Info

Yes, we ship internationally!  We would LOVE to have international runners, but due to the high cost of international shipping from the states, it lowers the donation amount significantly from each medal.  We accept international runners, but ask that you please donate extra during the checkout phase using the "donate" option to help us cover costs.

If you are located outside the U.S., please make an extra donation during your checkout process in order to cover shipping costs. International Shipping costs around $10-12 USD, so please consider this when signing up so we can still save Bostons in need but get you your medal.

Additional donations can be made during the registration/checkout process. Thank you for your understanding, we're trying to save Bostons!  Any extra portion of your donation that isn't used in international shipping will go to the rescue, it's a win-win!

About The Cause

This year, we (the organizers) became parents of a wonderful adult rescue BT named Mr. BoJangles.  After organizing the Virtual Pug Run, in honor of our other rescue dog, Matilda the pug, we knew it was a great chance to give back for a new member of our family.

The Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue takes in BTs of all ages and abilities, helping them find their fur-ever homes.   Our goal is to fundraise $4,000 to help them save more lives, we hope you'll join us!  

Team Sign Ups

Can you register a team? Yes you can!  We don't have teams set up on the site, but if you have a group organizer, have him/her collect all the names of the people who want to run together in person.   The organizer will select one address where all the medals can be sent and you can repay the organizer after sign up.

If you want to set up a team, please register all of your particpants at the same time and include the same shipping address when you sign them up, all the information can be the same, but the names can be different on each registration.  (same address, email address, DOB, etc).

How To Run A Virtual Race

Running a virtual race is easy!  Run your desired distance (5k/10k/ 1 mile) sometime in January anytime before the end of the month. It's all on the honor system (dog lovers are awesome, we know you did your run or walk) so you do not need to report your miles.  You need to sign up and complete your miles before February 15th.  Your medals will be shipped to you as soon as we can process them, and we ship out every week. 

If you'd like to show off your medal or earning your miles, you can post to social media with #VirtualCharityRuns or post your photos on our Facebook page. We love seeing Boston Terrier lovers from all over the world!
