The Worldwide WordPress 5k (#WWWP5k) is back and better than ever!
Any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!
Automatticians are planning to hit the trail on September 19th during our company meetup in Whistler, Canada. This year, we will also be making a donation to Soles4Souls, a charity dedicated to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing.
What is a 5k?
A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:
- Twelve laps around a track.
- Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.
- Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.
How do I participate?
You can run, walk, or skip — it’s totally up to you. There’s no time limit and there’s just one requirement: that you participate! You can do it at a gym or outdoors, on a treadmill or on a track, or even swim or bike instead of running/walking — just get moving!
Post about your participation on your site and tag the post “wwwp5k” so that other runners around the world can find you and read about your experience. If you’re not on WordPress.com, link back to this announcement post so others might join in and participate, too.
You’re welcome to blog about your entire route and preparation (a video or gallery, perhaps?), but above all we’d love to see where you are and how you’re completing your 5k.
When can I run?
We’re all busy, but we want you to participate, so we’re giving you lots of flexibility. You can complete the WWWP5k any time between Monday, September 19th and Sunday, September 25th.
Anyone who’s ever used or loved WordPress (and your families and friends, too). Heck, the entire internet is invited!
