We are excited to welcome you back to an in-person Aut2Run at California State University Channel Islands on Sunday, April 28th, 2024! For those of you who are not yet ready to experience Aut2Run in-person, but would still like to support Autism Society Ventura County, we will be offering a virtual option for you to participate in. This year is extra special to us as we celebrate Aut2Run's 12th anniversary!
100% of the proceeds from Aut2Run go directly towards fulfilling Autism Society Ventura County's (ASVC) mission of improving the lives of all affected by Autism. ASVC works to promote lifelong access and opportunity for all individuals within the autism spectrum and their families to be fully included members of the community. They achieve this through education, advocacy, a variety of programs, increasing public awareness, and collaboration with other agencies.
ASVC programs are primarily for individuals, families and caregivers who have people in their lives with autism of all ages. We also collaborate with service providers, agency staff, educators and teachers, and professionals who are interested in furthering the mission of ASVC. Their programs are open to any individual, family, or community member impacted by autism. Our Board consists of all dedicated volunteers.

15K Hero Run - Participants run both the 10K and 5K events separately. The times from the two races will be combined to give you your 15K results.
Virtual Race Information & Instructions:
Please choose a local safe route (since this event is virtual you can run or walk anywhere you like, we recommend a place that is safe with limited interruptions).
Please follow all local laws, stop at all lights, stop signs and be careful when you cross at any cross walk. Please be aware of your surroundings and be cautious as you will not be running or walking on a closed course. We cannot emphasize this enough.
Maintain, at an absolute minimum, 6ft between you and anyone else not in your household.
Your race packet will be mailed to you the week of the race.
Tracking your Virtual Race Distance:
Please use a GPS watch or phone with a GPS app (Strava or RunKeeper or two good ones) to track your time and distance. Upon completion you will then add your distance and time onto https://www.aut2run.org/Race/Results/2323#resultSetId-289928;perpage:100 anytime between April 18th and 24th. Please note, submissions are based on the honor system and there are not awards for the virtual run.
Packet Pick Up Information:
