Mispillion Art League is not letting a pandemic stop their annual Run for the Arts. The 3rd Annual Run for the Arts will be a virtual event held October 31 through November 1, giving each participant 48 hours to complete a 3.1 mile run or 1 mile walk on any course they wish.

“Folks are encouraged to post videos and photos of them completing the run,” Sonja Frey, Operations Manger of Mispillion Art League, said. “Participants are required to send a photo of their time and distance along with a photo of themselves for verification to the Seashore Striders.”

Frey explained that over the past three years, the event has raised $11,000 for the art league which is why they did not want to cancel. Creating a virtual version of the event, which many race organizers have done in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was not only a way for the art league to continue a fun, successful event, it may also provide a way for more people to participate.

“We are asking people to run or walk on the beach, on a track, on a favorite park trail or even on a treadmill,” Frey said. “Race shirts will be available as they have been in previous years. For those who are not runners or walkers, they an be “professional sleepwalkers.” Just make a contribution to the event through the registration page and stay in bed rather than walking or running.”

There is a $25 fee for those who register before noon on October 25 and the fee is $30 after that date. The run or walk must be completed between 12:01 AM October 31 through midnight November 1. Registration is available at https://runsignup.com/Race/DE/Anytown/3rdAnnualRunfortheArts.

All proceeds support Mispillion Art League, a non-profit that provides community-wide access to quality visual arts programs to the Milford community and surrounding area. The organization offers art classes to all, beginning at age five, and for all skill levels.

“Our Outreach programs, free to students or for a very low fee, have worked at Home of the Brave, at risk youth, People’s Place, Kent-Sussex Industry, Salvation Army HeARTs and Delaware Correctional Women’s Prison,” Frey said. “We also offer class scholarships for anyone who wants to take a class but may not be able to afford it at the time. We hope to “see” you running or walking your best race time this year and all for a great cause.”
