Get up and get moving! Be a part of the virtual Steam Train Half Marathon and Relay with our Locomotion Fitness Challenge. We've got 13.1 challenges to keep you active. These activities are fun and challenging, but we've got plenty to help keep you motivated. Join the private Facebook Group and share updates and pics as you complete challenges.  

The challenge will begin on April 5th and runs through April 19th and can be completed anywhere. You will log each completed task into Run Signup and earn a custom badge for each challenge you finish.

This challenge is Free, but we are suggesting a $35 donation. We are raising money for Community Health Resources (CHR) which helps adults, kids, and families find Real Hope for the challenges of Real Life through an array of community based mental health, substance use, child welfare, supportive housing, foster care, prevention and wellness services and integrated care. 

Our pop-up store is NOW OPEN! You will be able to order your t-shirt and other swag or pick up your items.  You will receive instructions after completing your registration. Thanks for the support!
