What is the Co-op 5k?

The Co-op 5k is a fun, family-friendly event held each May. It serves as a major fundraiser for the Cooperative Development Foundation (CDF). Monies raised through the event support cooperative development nationwide. Trophies are given for the Fastest Team, Most Team Spirit, and Highest Fundraisers. 
Race Information
The Cooperative Development Foundation is taking this year's Co-op 5k virtual. Cooperators from around the world will have an opportunity to compete against one another from their home turf. Whether you run by yourself or with your household, on a treadmill or around the block show your support for cooperative development.



If the event is virtual, then can't I run whenever?

Participants will need to walk or run from April 25 - May 1 at 11:59pm. Participating during this timeframe will allow for us to compile results, pictures and videos in time for the awards ceremony on May 4.


Will I still receive race materials?

Your t-shirt will be mailed to you. Make sure to register with the address you want your race materials sent to. Register by April 2 to be guaranteed a t-shirt in your desired size. Participants that register after April 2 will receive a large t-shirt. Race packets will be mailed out starting on April 12.


Can I still run with people I registered with?

If you practice proper social distancing rules, sure!


How will my time be recorded?

Use a GPS tracker device (phone, watch, etc.) to record your time. Snap a picture when you're done and send to us.


Where will I submit my results?

Send your proof of time directly to RaceWire by completing this form.


Where will I submit my pictures and/or videos?

Send your pictures and/or videos to Kirstie Boyette by completing this form.


How do I download the playlist?

A link will be emailed to all registered participants one week prior to the start of the race.


How do I enter for a chance to win a Cabot gift box?

Your confirmation email will have a link to register for a chance to win one of 25 Cabot giftboxes.


Will there be individual prizes given out?

The logistics of a virtual race doesn't allow us to send out individual prizes, but don't fret because eternal bragging rights will be captured on video for all to see.


What group award categories are there?

Fastest Team, Highest Fundraisers, and Most Team Spirit


How do I watch the awards ceremony?

A link will be emailed to all registered participants one week prior to the start of the race.
