We all want to get back to the races but we might be waiting a few more months before Pennsylvania gets back into full swing (let's hope!). While we wait, why not join a challenge to keep you motivated to train for those future races? Have you ever thought what it would be like to run on the PA Turnpike across the state or the perimeter of Philadelphia? Neither have we until now!
Once you choose your distance to complete - each time you log your miles your results page will show you where in Pennsylvania you would be along the route. You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside as long as you log the miles. You do not have to run or walk each day, you just have to finish the total distance (you can also go above and beyond!) between July 4th and September 21st. That is 80 days to complete the goal of your choice! You can choose to have a reminder each day to log your distances as well as daily updates with your location and cumulative distanced logged. We will have a live leader board at the RESULTS page for you to see how you place among the other participants daily! We ask that you join our Facebook group and tag any of your photos on social media so we can follow along!

We will ship directly to your address in September. All mileage must be submitted at your unique results page each day or each time you complete a daily mileage (you can enter mileage from previous days or whatever is convenient for you!

Practice social distancing and any other requirements set forth by local, state and federal guidelines. The interstates and highways are not open for pedestrian traffic, this is a virtual run/walk only, please do not gather as a crowd in any one location at the same time.
