The Sola Hot Mini 5k is now in its seventh year! Due to ongoing health concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020’s race has been converted to a virtual race! All proceeds raised will be donated to help in the fight to end ALS. This race is part of the 2020 Second Empire Grand Prix Series. Presenting sponsors for 2020’s race are Lulu Publishing and Amelia Aesthetics.
SO, HOW DOES THE VIRTUAL HOT MINI 5K WORK?
