ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

 

What is a Virtual Challenge? 
A Virtual Challenge is a run/walk that we do together, yet independently.  You can complete it at your own pace and anywhere you would like to run or walk. Simply register for the event and you have until December 25 to complete the 25, 50 or 100 mile challenge.  Your swag and store items will automatically be mailed before December 25.

Where Should I Run or Walk?
You can run or walk anyplace you like. Please follow social distancing safe practices.

Can I Complete My Miles on a Treadmill or an elliptical machine?
Your distance on a treadmill can be counted, but not your distance on an elliptical machine. 

 

GROUPS/TEAMS

 

How do we form a team?
The first member of the team will be given the opportunity to create a team name. Once the team name is formed, the rest of the team can sign up and select to join that team name during the registration process. 

If I sign up for a team, is there a fee for each team member? 
Yes, each member of the team is responsible for registering and paying for their challenge and will receive their own finisher medal, race apparel, online results tracking, custom bib, finisher certificate.

 

TRACKING YOUR MILES FOR THE CHALLENGE

 

Do I have to log my Miles?
Nope — logging your miles is optional, but we do hear from our participants that it helps them feel more connected to the challenge and to the other participants. 

How do I log my miles  for the challenge?
It’s super easy.  Here’s how:
1. Click on RESULTS tab at the top of the page
2. Click "SUBMIT RESULTS"
3.  Look up your name.
4. Enter your miles you ran or walked in the calendar.

Do I need a GPS watch tracker or official app to measure and time my distance?
You can use one if you wish, but you don't need one. You are on the Honor System. If you would like to use an app to measure your distance, some popular ones are Strava, MapMyRun and Run Keeper. Please note that you will still have to log your miles manually through the RESULTS tab, Run Sign Up does not have the ability to integrate with any apps at the moment. 

Can I change my distance?
