The AFFIRM Step Up For STEM 5K will take place over the weekend of Saturday, April 10, 2021 - Sunday, April 11, 2021, during this time you are free to walk/run in area you choose.  Prior to the event we will be sending your race giveaways to the mailing address provided. To track and verify race results we ask participants to download the app MapMyRun (available for both Android and Apple devices). This is not required to participate in the 5K and only used to verify the fastest participants for awards. Once you have completed your 5K and want to enter into our awards you will be asked to upload your race results.

You will receive event access information prior to the event date, as well as again the morning of the event. On the day of the event, you will see an "EVENT PAGE" button in the menu bar. You will need to log-in with the email and password you used to register for the event. 

If someone registered for you, or you don't remember your password, you can reset your password on the event website. 

We encourage teamwork and fun during this event! When completing individual or group registration you can indicate your team name in the registration field, and we will aggregate your team results.

Once the race period has opened, we will ask all registrants to input their input their race results on our online form. For verification purposes we are asking participants to upload a screenshot of their results using a race tracking app. We recommend using MapMyRun

While you do not need a race bib to upload your results, race bibs will be sent prior to the event with your confirmation number and name listed on top. You can print them for your run! 

Yes. We encourage you to do so! Please use the #STEPUPFORSTEM and we will repost and share pictures on raceday. We also ask to share with your friends and family prior to the race to raise awareness for STEM education.
