Description

Did someone say Shenanigan?  Back by popular demand we are excited to bring you the 2nd edition of the O'Shenanigan Challenge. Take a Light-hearted and fun -filled Virtual Tour of Ireland while you achieve your fitness goals for 2022. 

As we look toward 2022,  we wish you a rainbow of sunlight, miles and miles of Irish smiles, for golden happy hours, shamrocks at your doorway, for luck and laughter too, and a host of friends, that never ends, each day of the New Year.   

But we know that you are going to need more than sunshine, rainbows, and four leaf clovers to reach your 2022 fitness goals.   In fact, you may even need more than a T-shirt and Medal to reach your fitness goals.   
 
Here are the 7 ways the O'Shenanigan Challenge is going to help you reach your goals in 2022. 
 

1.  Did you know it takes 66 days to establish a new habit.  The O'Shenanigan Challenge is 75 days...which is the perfect duration to lock in those new habits as a way of life.   

2. We are going to turn your resolution to "exercise more" into a measurable goal.  
We have 8 goal distances to select from ranging from 1/2 mile a day to 20 miles a day.  When you register select distance that matches your goals.  (We have some pointers on our registration page on how to pick the perfect distance)

3. Measure your Progress. 
Each day you will be logging your exercise miles and tracking your progress on your virtual tour of Ireland. 

4. Make Exercise Convenient. 
Walk, Run, Bike, Hike, Swim, Paddle, Ski or Dance an Irish Jig!  You can log any type of exercise and complete your exercise anywhere and anytime.  

5. Exercise with Friends who encourage you and hold you accountable.  
As part of the O'Shenanigan Challenge you will have access to our private Facebook group.  Join our community of like minded goal setters on your exercise journey.   As an added layer of accountability we encourage you to form a team.  Check in with your teammates, set up a time to work out with your team members if you live close together, challenge and push one another along the way.  

6. Make Exercise FUN!  
At Full Send Racing we love to have FUN!  And we can promise you this challenge will be filled with lots of fun shenanigans! 

7. Reward Yourself
We want you to feel celebrated and rewarded for your hard work.   We want you to pick the swag that you will most enjoy!    We have lowered our registration fee and given you the option to pick your swag.  T-shirts, Hoodies, Pint Glasses, Beanies, and Stickers    All participants will receive a shinny, glittery fun Finisher Medal!  

Pick your Adventure

The O'Shenanigan Challenge is your personal challenge.  Full Send Racing offers the most flexible options to allow you to build the challenge to fit your goals and personal style. 

PICK YOUR ADVENTURE: 

The O'Shenanigan Challenge is composed of 8 unique tours of Ireland.  Want to see more of Ireland?  Pick as many tours as you would like for only $5 for each added challenge.  You may log all activity types in each tour OR you may separate your activities by tour.   For example, you may log Swim, Bike, Run, Walk and Paddle miles as part of the Irish Pub Crawl.  Or you may decide to Swim the Sheep's Head Way, Run the Ring of Kerry and Ride Dublin to Dingle.   

Sheep’s Head Way - 41 miles (0.5 mile / day)

Dingle Peninsula - 76 miles (1 mile / day)

Ring of Kerry - 122 miles (1.6 miles / day)

Dublin to Dingle - 237 miles (3.1 miles / day)

Castle Tour - 384 miles ( 5 miles / day)

National Parks of Ireland -583 miles (7.6 miles / day)

Irish Pub Crawl - 760 miles (10 miles / day)

Wild Atlantic Way- 1700 miles (22 miles / day)

The Goal of the O'Shenanigan Challenge is to move daily from January 1 - March 17.  This is a personal challenge and not a race so there is no reward for being the first person to finish.  You will want to pick a goal distance that will take you the full 70 days to complete.  (We know there are 76 days in the challenge but allow yourself some lighter days and some days off).  Pointers on Picking Distance.  If you are only doing one activity ex.  only walking or running or biking consider your daily mileage goal and then multiply that by 70.  If you want to mix it up with multiple activities you have two options. The first option is to consider how many miles of each activity you will complete.  For example, if you are going to run, bike and swim but most of your time will be on the bike...pick a longer distance...if you swim more than bike...pick a lower distance.    We often see folks underestimate the distance they can complete.  

 

Pick Your Swag

PICK YOUR SWAG: 

Have enough T-shirts to last a lifetime?  Or maybe you can't have enough great T-shirts?  We realize every participant is unique and different and instead of including a T-shirt with your registration we have lowered our registration fee and given you the option to pick your swag.  T-shirts, Hoodies, Pint Glasses, Scarves, Socks.  Add on as much or as little swag as you would like during registration.  This is just a small sample of the options you have to pick from during registration. 

 

Friends don't let friends SHENANIGAN alone!

We all know that Shenanigans are more fun with more friends!  Gather your friends and and family to form a team!  Teams of 25 or more get custom team stickers!  #doitforthesticker

Charity Partners

At Full Send Racing we are committed to making a difference in the communities where we work and play.  

We have the incredible opportunity to work with three charity partners for The O'Shenanigan Challenge: 

Charity #1 - Echo Haiti (Organage in Haiti)

We are excited to continue our partnership with Echo Haiti.  

The national news in Haiti is vastly different from the local news for our children in Bon Repos. Due to the generous support of our donors, we have been able to amplify hope in a place that is full of despair.  This hope comes through providing steady jobs for our orphanage workers, teachers, guards, and school staff.  It also comes to the children in having a steady place to grow, learn and dream of a solid future.  Recently we have been able to open our new school which replaced a three-room, 700 square foot building.  Our original school grew from educating 26 kids in the orphanage to 125 kids from the city of Bon Repos, while providing jobs for 12 teachers.  With the new school building and with increased staff, we have the potential to teach 300 students.  This not only impacts the orphans and the kids of Bon Repos, but it provides jobs that will benefit many families in the surrounding area.  This growth and potential is wildly exciting, but it also comes with a large financial responsibility.  Our goal is to hire six new teachers and two administrators. The cost per teacher is $163 per month or $1630 per year.  The cost per administrator is $217 per month or $2170 per year.   In addition to the school, we also continue to provide food, housing, counseling, mentoring and medical care to the children who live in our orphanage.  Our yearly budget has grown exponentially, but we love this challenge because the more money we invest the more we are amazed by how our friends in Haiti multiply the potential.

Charity # 2 - Eden Village Homeless Village in Wilmington, NC($2500 to furnish the Full Send Tiny House for a homeless person in Wilmington, NC)

Eden Village of Wilmington will be a 33-unit tiny home community specially designed to provide permanent homes for chronically homeless.   Through our other challenges, we have been able to build a tiny house for a chronically homeless person in Wilmington, NC.  The last step in the process is furnishing the house which will cost about $2500. 

Homelessness is a traumatic experience that forces individuals into constant survival mode. Eden Village gives residents a chance to transition back into a life of consistency and community. The pedestrian only, gated, courtyard community gives residents a chance to share their experiences in a safe environment and receive services from within their own neighborhood. The residents will experience a radical transformation in their lives, which will in turn spread to benefit the community.

CHARITY #3 - Hammer it Out Hustle - Pediatric Cancer Support for Families at the Medical University of South Carolina

Hammer Out Pediatric Cancer was started in 2013 by Chuck and Christine Towne in an effort to give back to MUSC after their son, Chase, went through months of treatments after being diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma at the age of 8 months.  Through the support of the community the Hammer Out Pediatric Cancer campaign has donated thousands of dollars to the Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital. The all-volunteer board works passionately in hopes of making a difference with children and families battling cancer.
