Description

Go the distance. Keep your distance.

During this time of social distancing and self-quarantining, we created a challenge to connect and inspire our community: Complete a virtual marathon in 4 months or less. No crowds. No Porta Potties. Join your friends at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare as we embrace this challenging time in our lives by celebrating our community and our health. After all, as anyone who has come out the other side knows, recovery is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

How It Works...

Starting June 1, we’re running a virtual marathon! Run or walk at your own pace, when and where you want. Just make sure to complete your journey of 26.2 miles by September 30, 2020. That date coincides with the end of Recovery Month — the perfect time to celebrate your virtual achievement! 

The Bling…

After you complete your virtual marathon, we will reward you with a commemorative race bib and medal, mailed to your home. Our race medal’s design is inspired by the landscape around our flagship Meadows campuses in Wickenberg, Arizona, where we’ve been a proud member of the recovery community for more than 40 years. We hope the cactus, foothills, and desert sun will continue to inspire you long after you cross the (virtual) finish line.  

Share Your Results

We want to see your smiling face along the journey! Be sure to follow @themeadowswickenburg on Facebook and use the hashtag #MeadowsVM2020. Upload photos, share personal stories, or brag about your times. We’re all in this together.

To submit your official results and receive your medal and bib, email racedirector@meadowsbh.com. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
