The Virtual First On The First 5K is your chance to participate in the OhioHealth First On The First 5K if you cannot make it to Westerville on New Year's Day or are not yet ready to run with a big crowd.

The rules for the OhioHealth First On The First 5K are simple. Sign up for the event and run your four miles anywhere at anytime between New Year's Day and Jan. 28, 2022.

How / When do I get my packet?

All event packets will be mailed to the address provided during registration the week of Dec. 27.

What do I do when I finish my run / walk?

Once you have finished your virtual run you can log in to your EnMotive account beginning January 1 and log your results. After you have logged your results you will be able to upload photos to share your experience with other runners. Can't finish your run on New Year's Day? That's okay! Runners can log their results and download a Finisher's Certificate through January 28. Check out how you stack up against other runners by viewing the race results page.

How do I log my results & get my Finisher's Certificate?

The race will be available for upload of results and photos from January 1-28, 2022.

No. Your medal will be mailed to you with your packet. However, once once you complete your run, you can Log Your Results and complete other post-race experience actions, like download your personalized Finisher's Certificate, see how you rank on the leaderboard of other participants, and upload your photos, crop and add filters, and add a OhioHealth First On The First 5K overlay to share on social and show off your well-earned medal!
