How It Works: Run from your own community to support Alternatives To Violence Project-CA! If you're from out of the area and want to support our mission, you simply register on-line and select “Virtual Run”. Once you receive confirmation, the next step is to make sure you prepare to run on the same day we are officially starting our event in Los Angeles (8:00 AM Pacific Standard Time). If there are multiple participants in your area, you can form a team and decide which park or community to cover the same distance (5K or 3.1 Miles).

Aztlan Athletics will mail out your t-shirt and Finisher Medal at least 1 week prior to the event with your Virtual Run bib to use the morning of the race.

Once you finish covering the distance, take a screen shot of your overall time and share it with our media manager at Ruben@AztlanEvents.Com . We recommend no more than a 20 second tribute video on your support for AVP-CA and no more than 2 photos of you and your team. Ruben will then compile the media on our 2018 events collage to post on the site. You will then be able to view your time on the Herosjourneyrun.com “My Results Page” by looking up your bib or name.
