Join us for our first Virtual 5k Run/Walk while enjoying and supporting our beautiful West Sacramento parks and trails.

Annually, West Sac Play hosts events throughout West Sacramento to bring our community together and raise additional funds to support West Sacramento parks. This year calls for us to think outside the box to find a way to work and enjoy as a community.  Of course anyone can participate in this race! 
West Sac Play is a non-profit, volunteer group, dedicated to building & enhancing play spaces for families in West Sacramento, CA. Find out more at

NOTE: If you choose to run/walk outside, please continue to adhere to the CDC and Yolo County guidelines on protecting yourself and avoid large groups or running close to others.

What is a virtual 5k? How does it work?
There is no specific location, just run, walk, jog, or treadmill between Sunday June 28th and Saturday July 4th. It’s your race at your PACE. Post your results and receive your shirt.

Do I have to be a runner to join?
NOPE! Run, walk, jog, or treadmill your race!

Can kids participate as well?
YOU BET! We do not have any set age limit.
