Your inherent reward is that you are improving yourself while supporting those in need of food. All challenges will also receive a limited edition Boston to Bar Harbor T-Shirt - unisex OR female-specific. In addition, all will receive a gorgeous Custom Medal to proudly display your accomplishment. And each challenger will receive a virtual challenge bib that can be downloaded from the race page, participation in an active leaderboard, live map tracking along our course and a digital finisher's certificate with all your stats! We will also be promoting random prizes throughout the challenge to help make it more fun - and keep you more connected with other participants!

 

When will my shirt, medal and sticker be mailed to me?

We will start processing your race packet once registration for your wave closes (one month after the wave starts).  It usually takes between 8-10 weeks from that date to receive your packet.  

 

How do I complete the challenge?

You can complete it any way you wish. You can walk, roll, run, spin - whatever makes you happy! And you can cover your miles any day, and in any way, that best works for you.    

 

When Can I Start?

You can start recording miles anytime after your wave begins and you will have six months in total to complete your challenge.  But the later you start, the more challenging your challenge will be!
