The annual Hapi-ness 5K in Laramie is going virtual for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

An update came out on Tuesday in a video posted to the Hapi-ness 5K Facebook page. They talked about the details and how to participate, thanked the sponsors, donors, and provided the background for those not familiar with this event.

The in-person race was canceled on April 15, so the Laramie Middle School Leadership Team chose to move the race to a digital 5K.

You can take part in the event starting Monday, May 11 through Saturday, May 16. They are asking participants to post their 5K time to the Hapi-ness 5K race day post.

The group said they realize donations during these hard times are challenging, but if you’d like to still help out, you can still send a check to Laramie Middle School. The address is LMS, 1355 N 22nd St, Laramie, WY, 82072. You can put, Attn: Hapi-ness 5K, when addressing your envelope, as well.

2020 marks the 34th year of this annual event.
