    This is an amazing event! I wish I could come down to Austin to participate, even just to get one of those gorgeous shirts! Maybe I'll get lucky and win one in the Meretz app.

    Good luck, Aerie! Lets get fit, Avatars!

    Hey, this is a good chance to note that anyone using the Meretz app can join the SotA Community tribe!

    Original Post updated with the a deadline to join the team: Friday, January 5th (midnight) - this is the marathon's rule, not ours.

    After registration closes, you can still support the team and receive the Virtue Marathon Wellness cloak through February 18th! :)

    Just signed up for the 5k! See you all out there! Unless you're behind me!

    Edit: *to clarify, it's unlikely you'll be behind me. I'm slow. :p*

    Oopsy - my original marathon

    graphic had 2.18.17 :O

    Updated graphic in the OP with the correct date 2.18.18 - pesky New Year and all.

    @Berek

    Awesome! You'll do great, Serafina. In fact, you'll probably end up carrying @matpsch across the finish line. :p

    If there's one thing we do as a Team Avatars, it's we carry each other. Sometimes literally.

    I could not attend but did donate to this, but I think I put anonymous for my name. :(

    How do would I go about claiming the cloak?

    Will the cloaks be sent out after the race? Sporting them in-game up to race day might help generate more donations.
