Virtual Run for Resilience – October 2, 2021

In support of the 2021 World Ostomy Day, our group is holding a Virtual Run for Resilience. In connection with this event, some of us in Stillwater, Oklahoma also intend to do a group walk around Boomer Lake as described below. In many other years, UOAA’s Run for Resilience series has included some fully organized 5 km Run/Walk events, some with timed races on certified courses, as well as more informal “Virtual” events that can be held anywhere. This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, none of the fully organized races are being held.

Show your support for people with an ostomy or continent diversion by participating in our Virtual Run for Resilience event. You can participate no matter where you’re located. The first step is to register to get an event T-Shirt and Race Bib. You can register on UOAA’s general registration page at runsignup.com/virtualostomy5k although we’d prefer that you register as a member of our group's “team” at runsignup.com/Race/Register/RaceGroup-948275?raceId=22873 Note: Please register by September 10th to receive your T-Shirt in time for the October 2nd event.

Once you’ve registered, please wear your T-Shirt and Race Bib while you Run, Walk, Roll, Pedal or whatever on Oct 2, 2021. You can do this wherever you’re located. However, if you can be in Stillwater, Oklahoma on that date, we hope you’ll join us for our group walk around Boomer Lake as indicated in the details below.

Also, whether or not you participate by Walking, Running, etc., you can donate to UOAA in support of our event at runsignup.com/north-central-ok-virtual-run-donate

Location:   Boomer Lake, Stillwater OK, meet at southwest parking lot (see map below)
Date:   Saturday, Oct 2, 2021
Time:   10:00 am

[Boomer Lake, Stillwater, Oklahoma]

The Boomer Lake SOUTHWEST parking lot, shown by a red rectangle in the above map, is near the intersection of Lakeview Road and North Washington Street. As shown by the map’s red arrows, you can reach this parking lot by entering the park from either Washington Street (about midway between Lakeview Road and Airport Road) or from Lakeview Road (just east of Washington Street).

After meeting at this parking lot, we’ll take photos and then do a walk (or run, if you wish) on the path that circles the lake. A loop around the lake is approximately 5 km (actually, it’s closer to 4.9 km). Most of us will do a lap around the lake, but if you don’t want to go that far, that’s okay – any distance you walk or run is fine. (And if you’d like to do multiple laps, that’s fine too!)

And, remember that whether or not you walk or run in our event, you can still donate on our event’s fundraising page.
