5K Angel Run 2021 2 - Kennedys Angel Gowns

And we’re back!

We are so excited to host the 5th annual 5K Angel Run in 2021! Let’s get ready for a bigger and better race for awareness and in remembrance of all angel babies. This fundraiser event provides families with a simple and easy way to honor and remember their baby gone too soon.

You can get pumped up about Flatout Events managing the race. Their system will also allow us to prepare for our awards ceremony quickly. Your race times will be emailed to you and will be available on our website.

A trophy will be presented to the best team t-shirt, middle of the pack winner, and winners in select categories. If you run virtually, you will get a race t-shirt and medal delivered before race day.

Post any of your race pictures on Facebook and Instagram and tag @kennedysangelgowns @5kangelrun and #5kangelrun in the post description. We’d love to see you!

5K Event Location

Dismal Swamp Canal Trail

1246 Dismal Swamp Canal Trail, Chesapeake, VA 23323

5K Registration

Individuals who want to walk, jog, stroller, or run the race select the 5K Angel Run (in-person), Stroller Stride (in-person, person with stroller/wheelchair), or Virtual (any type, not in-person) option when registering. If you’re the first one to register for a team, you will need to create it. Search the existing team names first to avoid duplicating your team (case/character sensitive).

We invite you to start a 5K fundraiser to support this event or in honor of your angel baby if you do not plan to register.

This year we are placing angel baby names on the back of the race t-shirt.

Race T-shirts and medals are guaranteed for all runners who register by September 30, 2021.

UPDATE: We have exceeded 500 registrations! We are short on race packet supplies (bags, shirts, medals).
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

After you complete registration, you will receive race-specific updates by email. Please check your spam/junk folder if you don’t see them.
