Description

Welcome to the official site for the Holiday Hustle Virtual Challenge benefiting The Dwelling Place, Inc. non-profit organization. This virtual challenge is designed to inspire you to stay active through the holidays and into the new year while contributing that time and effort to a good cause. The event will take place over 8 weeks, from December 1 to January 31, to give you the flexibility to complete all the challenge miles. If you missed the starting weeks, it will not be too late to enter after the challenge starts…you will just have a shorter time to complete the challenge. Swag will be mailed to you later in the challenge, at no additional charge. You can log workouts that you are using for other virtual events, and of course, encourage friends and family to join in on the challenge with you. Whether you are an avid cyclist on the street or in a spin class or prefer to stay home and stream your workouts on the internet, we have a challenge for you!
