The 2nd annual LECOM Costume Caper goes ALL VIRTUAL for 2020…and that’s good for several reasons:

  • Safer way to play, recreate, exercise during these “special social distancing” times
  • No set date to worry about, no weather worries to hold you back …you pick the perfect day, time and place…something comes up—you can pick another day, that’s the beauty of it
  • Run or walk…make it count even more by getting great swag and sense of accomplishment that you’re helping others in return
  • Still social…you may not be running in a pack, but you can run together by coordinating dates/times with friends, family around the world…comparing notes and experiences online afterwards, or even on-phone during
  • Run at your own pace…no pressure to “win”…if you’re looking for incentives though, we have great prizes for top finishers and contests along the way
