Stay motivated and stretch your limits in this local, virtual challenge!
Lincolnwood Limits is designed to be a community-based challenge that encourages participants to commit to running, walking, biking, or otherwise completing the equivalent of the distance of Lincolnwood's boundaries (7.7 miles) a certain times each month.
This is a distance-based challenge, which provides an opportunity to vary your pace and means of completing the challenge. You do not need to complete a full 7.7 lap in one workout. Each 7.7 mile "lap around Lincolnwood" can be completed however you choose - in segments over multiple days, all at once, through different types of workouts over one or multiple days, indoors on fitness equipment or while walking laps through a large building, outdoors along any route you create, etc.
You also get to “choose your own challenge” within this event in that you are able to determine how many times to complete the equivalent of Lincolnwood’s limits each month. Choose to complete anywhere from 7.7 (Lincolnwood Limits - ONE) to 38.5 miles per month (Lincolnwood Limits - FIVE), or set your own goals beyond that point (Lincolnwood Limited - UNLIMTED).
This virtual event will begin in January 2021 and run through March 2021, to help us stay motivated during our region's coldest months. You will receive a race shirt and medal, and will have the opportunity to earn custom, Lincolnwood-themed pins to add to your medal’s lanyard each month.
Let's kick this new year off right, while inspiring ourselves, neighbors, family, and friends to meet our goals and safety stretch our limits.
How the Challenge Works:
Important: This is a virtual challenge; there is no official route or course for this event. Racers are not encouraged to attempt to run the actual Village boundaries. Runners, walkers, and bicyclists determine how to complete the challenge distance on their own, at a location of their own choosing at their own risk. The services typically available during an in-person race are not available for the virtual event.
Fully participate in this challenge by logging the activities (runs, walks, rides, walk/run blend, elliptical, other) that help you reach your monthly mileage goals! You will have an opportunity to view your progress in conquering your overall distance goal, earn badges when you hit your monthly goals and other milestones, review all of the activities that led you to your goal, and view the leaderboard for your challenge.
When registering, "opt in" or sign up for emails on the "Virtual Race Information" page. This will allow our team to send you emails with instructions on how to report your performance and view your activity page.
