While the pandemic paused in-person conferences and the dF5K - we hope to resume our annual race at the 2023 Dynamic Communities Summit. Stay tuned here for more updates, and please take a look below at our past dF5K races and the charities that we support through them.


This year the deFacto 5k goes virtual!

We are pleased to announce the deFacto 5k is returning to Dynamic Communities Summit this year.  This virtual event will kick off on October 6th and ‘run’ through October 31.

We have partnered up with Rise Against Hunger – 100 % of 5k proceeds will be donated to this charity.

The deFacto 5k is a charity fun-run held annually in conjunction with Dynamics Communities’ events.  100% of 5k proceeds are donated to a different local food pantry to help end hunger. Under the belief that no one should go without a meal, deFacto Global has proudly underwritten the event as a way of giving back to the host community.

This year we’ve set up a Strava club to keep track and post our runners results and are offering various prizes in our Video submission contests on our deFacto 5k Virtual Community Page.
