We are so excited to announce NCA’s Virtual 5k, Saturday October 21, 2023!


By signing up, you have the freedom to run or walk a 5K distance at your own pace and in your own location! Choose your favorite route, hop on a treadmill, join a group near you, or make your own group while raising money for NCA and all our critical programs.

Each registrant will receive a NCA virtual 5K T-shirt connecting participants around the U.S. and showing support for the entire gluten-free nation!

How do I sign up?  Go to 

Do I have to be on a team?  No, during sign up, you have the option to select “no team” to participate as an individual. However we all know how fun it is to run or walk with others, so feel free to create your own or join another. Follow the link on the sign up page to select one of those options. 

Can I fundraise as an individual?  Yes!  When you sign up, each person will be able to do fundraising if they choose. If you want to participate as an individual choose “no team” when signing up.  A fundraising page will automatically be created for you. 

Do I have to do a fundraising page?  No, but we strongly encourage it to help support all the programs and support offered through NCA.  We appreciate your participation either way!

Does it have to be a set route?  No, you can choose where to run or walk!  Use your favorite trails, roads, paths or treadmill.  We recommend you measure out the route prior to the day of the event, you can use apps, maps or your car to get the correct mileage. 

When will my T-Shirt arrive? T-shirts will be sent, and guaranteed to arrive by the day of the event, to all those registered by September 22nd.  

Do I have to take pictures?  Not necessarily, but we strongly encourage everyone to take pictures and post to your favorite social media page. Tag #nationalceliac to help spread the word!  We encourage you to take a pic when your t-shirt arrives to use to encourage people to donate and again the day of the race.  The more pics posted the more we spread the word!
