It's time to continue running across America - so we figured what better way than to move our way eastward through Missouri! And what better way than highlighting the majestic arch that for which Missouri is known, in the very city that has been known at the Gateway to the West since the times of Lewis & Clark. This time however, we have our sights on the east - so you might say that our race celebrates that with our using it as our Gateway to the East!
We share above a link (see above) to why you just might want to run a virtual race. No matter your reason, we have a treat for you - from a beautiful bib to a large gorgeous medal with access to a certified running coach as you prepare for your race. No where else can you find a virtual race company that is as passionate about give you as much as we can for such a low registration cost. Maybe the real question is why wouldn't you want to run a virtual race with us?
Other virtual races will give an option to print a cheap printout of a bib with questionable results depending on your printer. In our race, we will send you a beautiful, full-colored high-quality waterproof bib (just like you get with a physical location race) that you can race with and keep as a collectible with all your other 49 states. We will send that to you in the mail (you heard that right) along with instructions on how you can submit your time.
Once you run your race during the time frame requested, submit your time and we will send you your very own, collectible 3.5" medal to celebrate your achievement! We DARE you to wear it around and show off just how beautiful your new, shiny medal is.
Yep, you heard us right. We will offer you a sizeable medal to commemorate your completion of the 50 State Challenge. There's no shipping, no cost to you - just a huge THANK YOU!!! for running all of our races.
Medal design will be released soon!
We are excited because we think our bling is pretty sweet. But we would be remiss if we didn't share how much more excited we are to offer this opportunity for us all to give back to those in need. With that, our goal is to help feed the nation, one state at a time, as we Run Across America. For everything purchased in conjunction with the Run Across America - Missouri race, we will donate of each registration to a local food bank in the state highlighted for the race. In this case, we will all be running and donating those proceeds to a local Missouri Food Bank.
We want to share an astounding fact we found when we hosted our first state, the California Food Banks: California food banks turn every $1 donated into 5 pounds worth of food.
Just think how many pounds of food we can all give together as we all join together and Run for GOOD. We're excited to be a part and can't wait to see how this grows state by state as we journey across America!
LOL - we've always wanted to say that. In all seriousness, on top of these amazing medals, you can also do the following:
