We’re excited to invite our community to join us for RunFest 2021

We’re going virtual again this year, and we’ve got an extra challenge on the table this time around. Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick your registration level
  2. Join our (optional) Great 8 Challenge for an additional $10 on your registration
  3. Sign up and indicate how you’d like to receive your registration packet (in-person pick-up or we ship it to you) 
  4. Any time on or before April 17th, write your name on your bib and run, walk, roll or stroll as far as you want
  5. Submit your post-race selfies to be featured on the Virtual Finish Line!

Want to start a team? You can do that! Click Here.



1. Complete the race any day between April 12th and April 17th

2. Take a selfie 

3. Click the button below to go to the Finish Line

4. Fill out the form and upload your photo 

5. Submit and check back later to see yourself along with all the other finishers!

(Special Note: All Great 8 participants will have an 8 sticker like in the photo)
Love this year’s T-Shirt? You can add multiple shirts to your registration in different sizes for friends and family!


Honor all 8 ASA Communities this year by joining the Great 8 Challenge!

  • Commit to running, walking, rolling, or strolling the distance of one 5k for each of our 8 Communities between April 1 and April 17
  • Check a Community off of your bib every time you complete 3.1 miles 
  • By the end of RunFest on April 17, you should have accumulated 24.8 miles total
  • However far you run on the day of RunFest will count toward your Great 8 Challenge completion

For an additional $10 at registration, you’ll get a Great 8 Bib in addition to your RunFest Bib, your Tee will feature an exclusive Great 8 Logo on the the sleeve, and you’ll get a one-of-a-kind ASA cell phone stand (perfect for hands-free mobile zoom meetings!).

Thank you to this year’s RunFest Sponsors!


If you round up a TEAM OF 5, you’ll get these sweet ASA socks in addition to the rest of your registration swag. 

If you put together a TEAM OF 10, you’ll get the socks and an ASA water bottle holder complete with a diffuser water bottle – so you can have fresh-fruit-essenced hydration during the race! 

If you FUNDRAISE $550 for ASA during RunFest, we’re sending you the most convenient travel-picnic blanket just in time for spring and summer outdoor activities with the family.

If you FUNDRAISE $800, we’re decking you out in a fresh, soft, and cozy ASA quarter-zip (available in both men’s and women’s sizes). 


Pay to have your race swag and bib mailed to you, or come pick it up at our Cockeysville office.
