Description

First and foremost, we hope everyone is safe and healthy through these trying times.  We bet you, just like us, miss the weekly group runs, weekend races, and all the joy that running brings our lives and community.  Without those running opportunities, we tried thinking of something to help fill the void.

So we came up with two separate events: Miles de Mayo Challenge and The Sugar Skull 5k -Virtual Race to encourage everyone to have fun and stay motivated throughout the Month of May.

Miles de Mayo Challenge will be a month long mileage challenge (run, run/walk, walk).  The goal is to get as many miles as you possibly can, or really want, or think you want.  Really there is no correct amount.  We know that everyone has their own goals, and run or run/walk for their own personal reasons.  Therefore, we are putting this challenge together to just keep you motivated to accomplish whatever "your" goal is.  We will have a leaderboard and live daily standings so everyone knows where they sit among the other participants. Participants will be reaching different mileage levels (clubs) as the month goes on; earning them bragging rights and one of the following awesome t-shirts.

Earn one of the following shirts:

  • 75 Mile Club
  • 100 Mile Club
  • 150 Mile Club
  • 200 Mile Club
  • 250 Mile Club
  • 300 Mile Club

This event is awesome because age does not matter, pace does not matter; just make sure you get in the miles and have a way to prove it.

Daily, you will need to email in proof of your run to: MilesDeMayoChallenge@gmail.com

Proof can be a picture of your watch, copy of your Strava, Garmin Connect, Run Keeper, etc.  Just something that is proving that you actually ran or walked those miles.  We encourage everyone to submit their miles daily, as this will create a "live" leaderboard and allow us to cheer on our fellow runners as well as motivate each other to get out the door and log the miles.  But you will have 48 hours to submit miles. Ex: If you forget to log Monday, you have until Tuesday night at midnight to get us those miles in.

One of our staff will then update the master leaderboard.  This leaderboard document can be seen at our Miles de Mayo Challenge Facebook Page

Please go to the Facebook Page and share pictures from your run, and anything else you are doing to stay fit and motivated.  This is the perfect place to encourage all your other fellow runners. This is a place that we can still be a group through all of this social distancing.

We will be mailing out the T-Shirts upon completion of the Challenge (month), so we can get you the correct mileage club shirt you have earned!!

In addition to this Challenge, we will also be ending the month with The Sugar Skull 5k Virtual Race.  This is a separate event than the Challenge. Wait until you see the badass medal that all finishers will get.  You will actually submit your times and the race will be scored like a real live race.  Follow this link for more info on The Sugar Skull 5k Virtual Race.
