Description

Vac & Dash has organized three separate challenges in 2019 to virtually travel across North Carolina by foot in 2019.  You can walk, run or run/walk the 548-miles from Murphy to Manteo from anywhere in the United States.

To walk, run or run/walk from the 548-miles from Murphy, NC to Manteo, NC in 2019, all you have to do is average about 1.5-miles a day.    You do not have to walk or run everyday.  This challenge is about traveling by foot 548-miles in the calendar year.

It's easy, keep track of the miles you walk or run in 2019. You can walk or run on the street, on a track, on a treadmill or on a trail.  Keep track of your miles. At the end of each month, log your monthly miles on a google docs spreadsheet that we will send a link to.

Walk Challenge: 

Please note that if you choose the virtual walk, your running miles do not count toward the 548-miles.  For the purpose of this challenge, wearing a pedometer at work and counting your steps through out the day does not count.  

For the distance to count in the walk challenge, it would be to move at a regular pace by lifting and setting down each foot in turn and never having both feet off the ground at once.  If you have a question on what a walk is, contact peter@vacanddash.com 

Run Challenge: 

If you choose the virtual run, your walking miles do not count toward your running miles.

 

Run/Walk Challenge: 

If you choose the virtual run/walk, you can count both walking and running miles for the miles..

All participants will receive a t-shirt.  All that achieve the journey will receive a finishers medal. We will also have drawings for prizes throughout the year.
