What if I am not a runner? Can I participate?
Of course! You can run, walk, hike, spin, move on a treadmill, stair stepper or elliptical. Just move!
Where do I have to be to participate in the Dole Great Race?
You can live anywhere! Anyone can participate in this challenge. You complete your miles on your own course, your treadmill, your bike, your elliptical or your stair climber etc.
What if I need to change the distance I registered for?
We understand things come up and you may not be able to complete miles you originally committed to OR have a surge of energy and realize you can complete a higher mileage challenge. Contact us by email and we will be happy to help you make the switch. One consideration: if you change distances of a challenge event you will need to re-enter all of your logged activity as your activity will not transfer over to your new distance.
How do I record my miles for the Challenge events?
Log your activity, mileage and time here. You can do it daily, twice a day, or you can do it once a week, whatever works for you. But we encourage you to log in after each activity to view your progress on the course map.
Do I need a GPS app like Map My Run or Strava? Will I need to show my watch or app for proof of activity?
An app or GPS watch is recommended, but certainly not required. There are a number of running apps that make it easier to track your time and mileage. If you don't have one, you can download a running app to an iPhone or Android device. Some apps available are Map My Run, RunKeeper, Runtastic, Strava. You can use an Apple Watch, Garmin, FitBit or other devices that track mileage and time. When it comes to logging your miles, you are on the honor system. You are entered in the Dole Great Race to be active and achieve your goal mileage. There are no placement or age group awards.
If I am participating in another virtual race or an in-person race, can I count those miles?
Absolutely! We love you are being so active!
When will I receive my swag?
Your race swag will ship in April.
I live outside of the United States, can I participate?
Yes, you can absolutely participate. However, we only ship to U.S., Mexico and Canada addresses only. Shipping to Mexico or Canada will incur a shipping fee of $20.
How do I record results for the Great Race Challenge?
The Great Race Challenge consists of three distances: 5K, 10K and Half Marathon. After you complete each distance, go to the Results page and click Submit Virtual Results. For the 5K, select Virtual 5K from the pulldown menu. For the 10K, select Virtual 10K from the pulldown menu. For the Half Marathon, select Virtual Half Marathon from the pulldown menu.
This is a virtual challenge. You are not running these routes. You are logging your daily activity and watching your progress on the virtual route.
Start at the north end of Kanan Road and run all of Kanan Road from end to end, from North Ranch to Malibu, finishing on Pacific Coast Highway at Malibu Lagoon.
Run your own route anytime, anywhere. Track your time and distance on your app or watch, record your result.
