We are excited to announce that the Courtyard Marriott Green Valley has opened their parking lot to host the drive through packet pickup for the Las Vegas Donut Judge Me Virtual 5K.

We know there is a small number of people that have been waiting for packet pickup, so get ready to grab your gear and run your race!

Plan to join us on Saturday, May 9th from 1:00pm-3:00pm.

  • Courtyard Marriott Henderson Green Valley, 2800 N Green Valley Pkwy, Henderson, NV 89014
  • Here is a LINK TO A MAP for where we will be on Saturday the 9th
  • The hotel is closed temporarily so there will be plenty of room to set up a drive through for you to come either direction.
  • Please stay in your vehicle, we will get your name or list of names and then bring your gear to you. Everyone will receive their shirt, bib, finisher medal and of course your tube and challenge medal if you elected that option at registration!
  • We still encourage friends and family to coordinate and send one person to the drive through to get multiple packets. If you have 6 or more and would like all your gear pre-packaged for easy pickup, please complete the FASTPASS REQUEST

RANDOM PRIZES! We’ll be handing out random prizes during packet pickup, maybe you’ll be one of the lucky winners!

If you do not wish to wait, you may sign up for the INDIVIDUAL PACKET MAIL option to have your packet shipped to you within 48 hours of your request (there is a shipping fee for this option).

Update April 2 - City of Las Vegas Postpones Packet Pickup Date

Because of the latest Stay at Home order, the City of Las Vegas has postponed the drive through packet pickup scheduled for this Saturday. While they believe the drive-through pickup is a good plan, this activity has been deemed non-essential and must be postponed.

While we wait for an updated date, we are going to continue mailing your Virtual Race Gear so you can get outside and stay active with a fun virtual event! We will also extend the prize period into May so more people can have chances to win!

We thank everyone that was waiting for packet pickup this weekend, planning to pick up your group instead of requesting the mailing option. At this point, we would like to go ahead and have everyone that has a group of 2 or more use the MAIL MY PACKET ONLINE MAIL MY PACKET FORM. Individual packet mailing is something we are working on as we try to manage the massive shipping costs at a time when our business is completely shutdown. Stay tuned for more information on that option as we wait for a new date from the City.

If you already have your packet, make sure to SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS to the Be Fit. Be You. Virtual Race site to be eligible to receive random prizes every Friday. Winners are posted on Facebook and on the Donut Judge Me Virtual Results Page.

We will share additional information with everyone as we receive updates from the City.

Stay healthy and keep smiling!
– James and Sheri Nichols

April 2 – 8:00am

Update March 27 - Packet Pickup Approved

The City of Las Vegas has approved our plan for the Drive-Through packet pickup option for Saturday, April 4th.  Packet pickup will take place from 1pm – 4pm at Sunset Park, please plan to enter the parking lot off Eastern Ave (7000 S Eastern Ave, Las Vegas NV 89120).  See the area map below, click to open/print.

We are excited to be able to offer this modified packet pickup plan. As a thank-you for your continued support, we will have random prizes throughout the pick up… For a chance to win, just drive through, get your packet and you might win a Donut Judge Me keychain, headband, campfire mug, or other great goodies! You’ll be receiving additional details about the prizes in other emails, so watch those inboxes!

  • Everyone will receive their shirt, bib, finisher medal and of course your tube and challenge medal if you elected that option at registration
  • With the most recent CDC recommendations and local guideline changes, the city does not want us to hand out doughnuts as we had requested.
  • We have had a tremendous response to our group packet shipping option to groups of 2 or more! Please consider using the packet pickup first, but if you cannot attend please request mailing: MAIL MY PACKET (This option will close on THURSDAY, 4/2/20)
  • o further reduce volume, we encourage friends and family to coordinate and send one person through the drive through to get multiple packets. Use our FASTPASS LINK to make that request.

If you are unable to pick up on Saturday the 4th, or you do not have a group, please contact Sheri or myself (James) through our Contact Us form. We should be able to work something out for you.

Our hopes are high that we will overcome this quickly, and be back to celebrating crossing finish lines soon.  We are beyond thankful that over the years we have had such a loyal running community and hope that with your continued support, we will be able to survive this.  Hosting running events isn’t something we do, it’s part of who we are.

We are asking the running community to come together.  Not just for 131 Events, but please help and support all small local businesses at this time. The choices most of us our forced to make comes with a great deal of sadness and disappointment and will ultimately have a big effect on all running event companies. 

Update March 26

Shipping has begun for the Las Vegas Donut Judge Me 5K Virtual Event!

We have shipped nearly 400 packets so far this week with more going out today and tomorrow. Sheri and I appreciate your patience, it’s just the two of us in 131 Events so we’re shipping as quickly as possible.

The City of Las Vegas is reviewing our plan for a Drive-Through packet pickup. We had a great time last weekend in Tucson with the drive-through process, and it worked very well as we are all practicing safe and healthy social distancing through this time.

Remember, we are shipping for groups of 2 or more, if you would like to elect that option and not wait for the packet pickup, please complete the MAIL MY PACKET ONLINE MAIL MY PACKET FORM.

We thank everyone that can wait for the packet pickup. When all this happened, we had already purchased and paid for everything related to this event and several others.

As a small family business, we are committed to shipping as much as we can for your convenience, we truly appreciate any support you can give us through this time. Coming to packet pickup helps us tremendously…not to mention we have a bunch of prizes that will be randomly given away at the drive though.

Sincerely,
James and Sheri Nichols

Update March 20

With the City of Las Vegas banning all in-person events, we have modified the Donut Judge Me 5K to a virtual race hosted by Be Fit. Be You. Virtual Events.

So what’s next?

First, we will make sure everyone get’s their shirt, bib, finisher medal and of course your tube and challenge medal if you elected that option at registration.

With the updated requirements issued by the CDC over the weekend, we need to make some changes to the packet pickup process:

  • Everyone will receive their shirt, bib, finisher medal and of course your tube and challenge medal if you elected that option at registration
  • Packet pickup will be moving to a new location and will be a drive through only set up.  LOCATION AND TIMES WILL BE ANNOUNCED HERE AND BY EMAIL.
  • We will need to wait until closer to the date to know for sure if we can offer doughnuts at the packet pickup.  With restaurants and bars closing all over the country, we do not know what the status will be in Las Vegas the first weekend in April.
  • To reduce overall volume at the live pickup, we are offering free shipping to groups of 3 or more that want their materials shipped to their homes.  Please use this option to have your group packets mailed: MAIL MY PACKET

Next, the Virtual Race

  • Once you have your bib, medal and shirt… find a time to run or walk your miles that is convenient and safe for you.
  • If you still plan to run with friends, make sure to follow all the recommendations of local health officials and CDC as you run in a group setting.
  • Record your time on an app, watch, etc.  And if you have a GPS tracking device, use that as well because we’d love to see you share your track!
  • Take some fun photos of your run, your finish, your post race festivities… we’d love to see all those great race photos we won’t have this year!
  • Go to BeFitBeYou.org to submit your results.  Things we’re looking for when you submit:
    • Your total distance, this is a 5K event but you are welcome to run/walk/swim/hike …whatever works best for you.
    • Your total time, so keep track.
    • You can link your results to a GPS track or run map from sites like MapMyRun, Strava, etc.  Just make sure you make your track public so it can been viewed. (Optional)
    • You can also attach an image of your results such as a screenshot.
    • And then PLEASE attach some photos of your run, post run activities… we are missing out on all the awesome racer photos this year!

WHY KEEP TRACK AND SUBMIT?  PRIZES!

Remember, we will be doing random prizes for people that submit results. Prizes will be awarded every Friday following packet pickup and for the next 4 weeks, beginning 4/10 and running through 5/1. Winners will be announced on Facebook and listed on the Be Fit Be You Donut Judge Me Virtual Results Page. Prizes will be awarded randomly based on everyone who’s submitted results at the time. We’ll also have prizes for things like the most interesting location submitted, and best photos, etc.! So get your results posted!

Please let us know if you have any questions, need guidance, ideas, etc, you can Contact Us as any time!

A brief FAQ

A few quick answers to our most frequently asked questions:

  • EVERYONE must be registered including kids. The only exception is kids 3 and under in strollers that are not participating.
  • We do have discounted pricing for kids 10 and under. This category does not include a shirt so you are encouraged to use the individual option if you would like a shirt.
  • Carrying bags on the course for doughnuts is NOT ALLOWED, this slows progress of the event for everyone. At the conclusion of the event we will have bags from the Doughnut Peddler and will distribute all the leftover donuts to racers that are hanging out in the finish area.
  • Strollers MUST BE REGISTERED, you’ll find this option in your registration form.
    • Strollers may not be larger than 31″ wide
    • Stroller wagons are not allowed
  • No other wheels are allowed, so no wagons, scooters, etc.
  • For the safety and comfort of all of our racers, dogs and other pets are not allowed.
  • This event WILL SELL OUT, please make sure your group or family all register together so no one gets left out.
