ACSM Virtual 5K Run
21 June 2020, London, United Kingdom
The Gisolfi 5K Run has been part of the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), and this year the charity running event went virtual due to the cancelation of the ACSM conference. That meant that anybody could run/walk or roll the 5K and take part in the event from any place around the world.
ABOUT THE EVENT: The 2020 Virtual Gisolfi 5K marked the 20th consecutive year of ACSM and Gatorade celebrating runners, walkers and rollers of all skill levels. The event recognizes the many contributions of past ACSM President Carl V. Gisolfi, Ph.D., FACSM. The Virtusla 5K run took place between 12 June and 2 August with a total of 529 participants completed and submitted their 5K Run, Walk or Roll results. The money which were raised through this participation were given to the ACSM Foundation and the ELEVATE Capital Campaign.
MY PARTICIPATION: I ran the 5K here in London on 21 June 2020, next to one of my favourite places, the O2.
