Vac & Dash 31 5Ks in 31 Days Challenge

Here it is, one of the ultimate challenges for the Summer of 2021.   Beat the Heat with a 5K a Day Challenge for the Month of August.  Plus, work your upper body with a 31 push-up and 3:10 planks a day challenge.

The Vac & Dash 31 5K's is a great challenge for family and friends to participate in to get Fresh Air - Sunshine and Exercise.  This is also a fantastic challenge for cross country runners to use to get in shape for the upcoming cross country season.  

Do the following each and every day in August:

1) Run, Walk or Run/Walk at least a 5K a day each and every day in August. (You can split it up as long as you cover 3.1-miles a day on foot. Treadmills are acceptable.


2) Optional - Do at least 31 Push-ups each and every day in August.


3) Optional - Do 3 minutes and 10 seconds of planks each and every day in August.  


Note that you do not have to do all at once.   You can run a mile in the morning and walk 2.1-miles in the evening.  Same with push-ups and planks.

Log you miles on so you can see how you are doing compared to others.

I have been testing out the challenge for the last two weeks and learned that for myself, I switch around the workouts.

Example:  One day I may run 3.1-miles or so and in the evening do my push-ups and planks.  When I do my push-ups and planks I sometimes break that up into 10 push-ups  1:00 plank  10 push-ups 1:00 plank 11-push-ups and finish the workout with a 1:10 plank.

The $31.00 entry fee includes your choice of a cool max shirt or tank top.  ($36.00 August 1 & 2) You can pick the shirt up at Vac & Dash or we can ship it for $3.10.

Those that complete the challenge will have their name in a drawing for a free pair of shoes and other prizes.  Plus, finishers get an awesome Finishers Medallion that you can hang on a wall with pride.
