Do YOU have what it takes to be a Winter Warrior?  

Fleet Feet West Lafayette is committed to you and your fitness!  We’re looking forward to 2021 and we’re challenging YOU to start the year off right by lacing up your shoes and hitting the road (or trail).  Please join us for the Fleet Feet West Lafayette WINTER WARRIOR '21 CHALLENGE, a virtual mileage challenge designed to motivate you to run or walk OUTDOORS while engaging in friendly competition with your friends, old and new. The challenge runs from Friday, January 1 through Sunday, January 31. This challenge is for all abilities and is about keeping you active during the cold and dark days of January.  

To make it competitive for all levels we’ve created divisions (registration options) based on your individual training level. Pick the division that most closely reflects the current level of your training: 5K, 10K, or Half Marathon. This allows participants with like training goals to compete with others with the same goals.  Registration ends at 11:59 PM on Sunday, January 3, 2021.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register for the challenge by first choosing a division. The cost is $25 for the special WINTER WARRIOR '21 CHALLENGE super soft lifestyle cotton long sleeve tee in Charcoal.
  2. Join the private Facebook group to engage with other challenge participants. Once you register, you will receive an email confirmation that provides instructions on how to join.
  3. Run, Walk, Jog, Saunter, etc. to accumulate the most miles on foot during the challenge period.  Instructions for entering your mileage are provided under the 'Winter Warrior FAQ' tab at the top of the Winter Warrior challenge page.
  4. Use the RunSignUp leaderboards under the 'Results' tab to track your ranking for Most Distance. Every step counts.
  5. Have fun!  While this is an individual challenge, if you are comfortable, you can run in small groups, however we ask that you respect the current guidelines in place regarding masks, social distancing and very large group meet-ups etc.  
  6. This program will not include any formal training program, curriculum or formal group meet-ups, it is simply an accountability challenge to keep everyone moving during the cold and dark month of January!  
  7. This challenge is basically the honor system but participants are highly encouraged to share their runs or walks under the weekly posts in the Facebook group.  
  8. At the end of the challenge, we will raffle off a Fleet Feet gift card to an eligible participant from each division.  All those who complete the minimum mileage for their division from January 1 through January 31, 2021 will be eligible to win!
