SIOP Frank Landy 5K Fun Run Goes Virtual in 2021

Last year with the sudden transition to a virtual conference, we didn’t have an opportunity to re-imagine the Frank Landy 5K Fun Run. For the 2021 SIOP Annual Conference, we are excited to offer this well-loved annual conference event from whichever streets, trails, or treadmills you most enjoy.

You will once again be able run (or walk), connect with others, and compete for fastest time in whatever group you fall into—just like we have done for more than 25 years. Although you may not be able to run with your advisor, student, or colleague, you can still form a team and run together in spirit or you can just run (or walk) for no other reason than it’s an excuse to go outside, get away from your desk, and perhaps do something different for 30 minutes.

And do you know what’s really cool about a virtual run?! You can do it whenever you want during the conference. No getting up at 6 a.m. for a 7 a.m. run with a mad dash back to the hotel to get cleaned up for an 8 a.m. session (although that may have enticed some of you to run faster).

Because there’s no urgency, even if you don’t run, consider walking 5K with someone in your family or with your dog (or cat). Visit the Fun Run webpage for details.
