Lace up your shoes for the 2nd annual worldwide virtual 5k!
OCTOBER 1-31, 2021
There’s no time limit and there’s just one requirement: that you participate. You can do it inside or outside, on a treadmill or on a track — just get moving! If you’ve ever used or loved WordPress (your families and friends, included), this virtual race is for you.
Heck, the entire Internet is invited for this event!
COUNT ME IN! HOW DOES IT WORK?
We know you’re probably still navigating many changes in these uncertain times (so are we). Remember, we’re all in this together!
That’s why we are giving everyone some flexibility for completing this global 5k race. Run or walk any time between October 1 – October 31, 2021 to participate in this 5k. Track your route on your favorite exercise app or simply do it off the grid – your choice!
To get started, head to the registration page! It’s free.
Don’t want to run, but still want to give? You can from the donation page.
Once you’ve completed your 5k, share a selfie on your favorite social media platform or tag your blog post using the #wwwp5k tag. Share a screenshot of your completed route. And bonus! We’ve added some custom gear in our store just for this event so you can display your Wapuu pride.

5k is approximately 3.1 miles long, or roughly equivalent to:
- Twelve laps around a standard running track.
- Approximately 6000-7500 walking steps.
