2024 Virtual 5K | Generations Fund


SSP is hosting our third annual Virtual 5k Run, Walk, and Roll to benefit the Generations Fund. This inclusive event encourages you to complete a 5k course where you are, however you can. Every registrant will receive an official race t-shirt. And, thanks to our amazing sponsors, 100% of your $35 registration fee will benefit the SSP's Generation Fund—our effort to permanently endow workforce development and DEAI programs that enhance the future of scholarly communications. You will also be recognized on the Generations Fund supporters list.

Register by May 15th to receive a t-shirt before our official race day of June 8, and share your participation on social media using the hashtags #SSP5k.

Be sure to provide your shirt size and home address below!
