Autism Society Central Virginia AuSome 54-Day Challenge

Mon April 12 - Fri June 4, 2021 Richmond, VA 23219 US
Race FAQs

The AuSome 54-Day Challenge will kick-off on April 12, meaning participants can begin logging their miles on that day.  Participants can register anytime between now and May 14, but the sooner you register, the sooner you can track your miles and compete against fellow participants and team members.

Registration starts at the early-bird price of $25 for the Run/Walk/Hike, Cycle, and Let's Move events, and rises to $30 on March 12, and $35 on April 12.  Registration includes an AuSome 54-Day Challenge t-shirt.  Kids 12 and under can register for $15 and will receive a t-shirt and kids medal.  Children 4 and under can register for free.  Nuclear families of 4+ will receive a discount on registration.  Click here to see the price breakdown by dates and ages. Once you get to the page make sure you click on "Show Registration Details."


Additional Purchases
Additional t-shirts can be purchased for $25 each (adults) or $15 (kids size).
Celebration signs are available for purchase for $20.  The signs will be displayed during the livestreamed Grand Finale Celebration.
If you cannot join us in person, you can choose to have your t-shirt  mailed to you for $7.50.

Will we be getting together in-person?
This is a virtual race that you can complete from anywhere over the 54 days of the Challenge! While we do anticipate holding an in-person packet pickup, our Grand Finale program will be held virtually, livestreamed so that all of our participants can celebrate with us.  Our goal is to keep all of our participants safe during continued COVID-19 precautions.


How do I set my goal?
Participants in the Run/Walk/Hike and Cycle events have the ability to set their own goals.  From the results page, click "submit virtual results."  Then enter your name, confirm with an email address or phone number, and you will be taken to your virtual results page.  Look for the box on the right marked "Goal" and enter your goal distance.  It will automatically create a progress bar so you can see your progress to goal.


When can I start counting my miles?
You can log activities anytime between April 12 and June 4!  Activities prior to April 12 do not count toward the AuSome 54-Day Challenge.


How do I track miles?
Participants can use a fitness tracker, phone app, or MapMyRun in order to track purposeful miles.  Any miles you run, walk, hike, or cycle will count--outside or on a treadmill or spin bike--but daily distances accumulated on your fitness tracker (like Apple watch or fitbit) don’t count.  It's your challenge, but we want you to take some time to get away from Zoom and make a purposeful effort to get your miles!


How do I log miles for the challenge?
From the results page, click "submit virtual results."  Then enter your name, confirm with an email address or phone number, and you will be taken to your virtual results page.  Click “Add Another Activity” to log the date, miles completed, and any notes about your activity.  You can only enter one result per day, so if you plan to do multiple runs or walks in the same day, please enter the total distance for the entire day.  If you miss a day, don't worry: you can log multiple days at a time.


Can People Outside of Central Virginia Participate?
Yes!  The exciting part of the challenge is that anyone can participate from anywhere.  Friends and family from all over the country (or the world) can register, join your team, and rack up those miles!


What if I don’t hit my goal?
That’s okay!  You will still receive your AuSome 54-Day Challenge t-shirt and you will still be AUSOME!
