Spring Family Fun: Lakeland Regional Health Virtual Promise Run – Save 50% off for a Limited Time

Promise Run Lakeland 2021

The Lakeland Regional Health Hollis Cancer Center Promise Run is going VIRTUAL for 2022! This is a great opportunity for a family activity that also supports an important cause in our community.

Lakeland Regional Health is one of our sponsors and we’ve got an exclusive discount code for Lakeland Mom Readers – save 50% off registration through midnight on February 28. Details below. (Ready to register? Jump to Discount Code)

Here’s the scoop on what the 2022 Virtual Promise Run looks like:

  • Register for the Promise Run – you, your kids, your spouse, your best friend – the more the merrier!
  • Check the mail starting February 21 – everyone who registers will receive a race bib, moisture wicking technical shirt, and race medal, and it will all be mailed directly to you, no need for packet pick up this year.
  • Anytime between March 4 – 6, you’ll choose your favorite 5k or 10k course and head out to complete your own race.
  • You can use the RaceJoy app to track and send in your time OR enter it manually using the honor system.

We’ll tell you a little secret… if you’re just looking to have fun and support a great cause and you don’t care about having an official time, you can also do the 5k or 10k before or after the March 4 – 6 dates and don’t have to record your time. You’ll still get all the benefits! Just no shortcuts – keep your Promise to complete the race.

Why we’re excited about this Virtual Race

  • Your entire family can participate together. Kids, teens, babies, strollers, dogs, dogs in strollers – everyone can join in the fun as your family makes a memory together.
  • You can all go at your own pace, at a time and location that works for you.
  • Everyone gets a shirt and a medal! What kid doesn’t get excited about a medal. 😉
  • You can wear a bib to honor someone in the fight against cancer – “Running In Honor of _______” – be sure to snap a photo and send them your love.
  • The RaceJoy App is free and helps you track your race time and distance. Plus you can share your info with remote friends and family members who can track your status AND send you supportive audio cheers. How fun is that!
  • A virtual race means the Promise Run doesn’t have to be canceled this year. Participants can have fun, support those with cancer, and celebrate survivors all while staying safe and socially distanced. 

Where to run or walk your 5k or 10k

You can pick any location to complete your 5k (or 10k if you choose). A 5k is 3.1 miles and a 10k is 6.2 miles. A few ideas:

  • Follow the official Promise Run Course from Lake Mirror to Lake Morton to Lake Hollingsworth – maps can be found on the Promise Run Website
  • Lake Hollingsworth is a paved path that is just under 3 miles when you make the full circle. Use a phone or distance tracker if you want to be sure you go the full 3.1 miles.
  • Holloway Park has a marked 5k course if you prefer to run/walk on dirt. Just be sure to follow the signs or you’ll do a 10k without meaning to!
  • If you’re going to stroll instead of run, the promenade at Lake Mirror is quite scenic – it is 0.7 miles around so you’ll need to make a few loops.
  • We’ve got a full list of paved paths and walking trails in Lakeland, Winter Haven, and across Polk County to help you find other places to run or walk the 2022 Virtual Promise Run! {TIP – if you have younger kids, many of the paved paths are at a local park with a playground, which can be the reward for finishing the race}
