Description

Join us as we celebrate our 244 years as a country on July 4, 2020.   We will begin our celebration a couple of months early, so you may hopefully still enjoy your 4th with family and friends.  The awesome part is that you will have your patriotic swag delivered before Independence Day!

Show your patriotism!  Run, walk or hike wearing red, white and blue!  Post Selfies to our Facebook Event page!   Join the Event and watch for some patriotic & inspirational quotes to help us all get through this pandemic together.

Now is the time to support our fellow Americans, especially our front line support and Coronavirus patients and families. A portion of registration money and all donations go to FeedingAmerica.org.

Happy Birthday, USA!  We look forward to this two-month celebration with some amazing runners, walkers & hikers!!!

Which challenge will you be celebrating?

4 Mile Independence Day Celebration

Complete 4 miles on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 4 miles?  Because it's the 4th Celebration, and we still measure distance in miles:)

Plus, it's a bit more challenging than that typical 5K that many of us are used to.  Enjoy the extra .9 miles!

17.76 Mile Declaration of Independence Celebration

Complete 17.76 miles on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 17.76 miles?  Because 1776 was the year in which we declared our independence.

And, it is likely to be a PR for most of us, because who has ever done 17.76 miles???

50 Mile 50 States Celebration

Complete 50 miles on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 50 miles?  One mile for every state in our Union.

We're excited to see some Ultra Runners finish the 50 miles in one session.  For us mortals, you are able to break the 50 mile Challenge into several segments.

134 Mile Statue of Liberty Celebration

Complete 134 miles on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 134 miles?  That's how old the Statue of Liberty is.

We created this distance to have something in between 50 and 244.  After much effort with Siri and Alexa, we thought Lady Liberty's would be a great distance for those of us who want to really push ourselves.

You may break this event into as many segments as you need, as long as results are posted by June 25, 2020.

244 Mile Happy Birthday USA Celebration

Complete 244 miles on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 244 miles?  That's how old our country is.

Hard to believe the United States of America is turning 244 this year - so for those of you who are up to the Challenge, Celebrate our country by completing one mile for every candle on her cake!

You may break this event into as many segments as you need, as long as results are posted by June 25, 2020.

"Team" 134 Mile Statue of Liberty Celebration Relay

Complete 134 miles as a team on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 134 miles?  That's how old the Statue of Liberty is.

Why a team?  Because Misery Loves Company!  You're silly enough to take on the Challenge, it's more fun having silly friends to conquer it with!

We created this distance to have something in between 50 and 234.  After much effort with Siri and Alexa, we thought Lady Liberty's would be a great distance for those of us who want to really push ourselves.

"Team" 244 Mile Happy Birthday USA Celebration Relay

Complete 244 miles as a team on foot (Run, Walk, HIke) then upload your results.

Why 244 miles?  That's how old our country is.

Why a Team?  Because 244 miles is a very very long way...  Divide and Conquer!

Hard to believe the United States of America is turning 244 this year - so for those of you who are up to the Challenge, Celebrate our country by completing one mile for every candle on her cake!
