“Everything is awesome!”


Fandom Running Club is excited to present the newest event in the Fanatic series:

Build Your Own 5k!

You’re the one with the master builder skills to assemble yourself exactly as YOU want, so click on your favorite pair of workout pants (“Honey, where are my…?”) and get inspired by the little building blocks that the entire world knows and loves.

Your $27 registration donation for the event includes this imaginative 3″ medal showing off just how unique and no-rules-only-right you can be if you choose!

As with every FRC medal, registrants around the world also receive the beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and a personalized digital participation bib.

Everything is cool when you’re part of a team…especially a team that’s making the world a better place.


The Fandom Running Club designates a past Fanthropy™️ charity partner to be the recipient of a percentage of the proceeds from all our virtual fitness event registrations.

To learn about our current spotlight charity partner, see the Charity Partner page.

So why DID the plastic chicken cross the perfectly textured road?


When your entire fitness journey is based around doing whatever the heck you want, you don’t have to explain things to anyone else. You do you, boo. So if someone asks why your nothing-else-like-it-in-the-world event shirt for the BYO5k has a plastic chicken on it, you tell them “I’ll explain at the finish line…try and keep up.”

Available in multiple fabrics and styles from tees, to tanks, to v-necks, to long-sleeves, proceeds go to support our fantastic non-profit charity partners!

“Ah, we gotta write all that down ’cause I’m not gonna remember any of it, but here we go…”


This is a ‘virtual’ fitness event, so you can complete your five kilometer distance wherever, however and whenever you want! Where? Do it around your own personal Brick City (hi, neighbor!), at the gym, on the treadmill, or on your favorite bonkers path through Cloud Cuckoo Land. How? Walk, run, skip, roll, row, or wander. When? Do it on a Monday night, a Thursday morning, or a Saturday afternoon. It’s all up to you.

Medals are scheduled to ship in early September. And remember that you don’t have to use any special apps to track or report your progress; the medals will ship out on the honor system. Just go be awesome!
