Run across the U.S. in this virtual foot and bike race! "Start" at the Red Ball Garage on 31st in Manhattan and watch as you (or your team - Miles are split amongst your team members) go across the nation, finishing up at The Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach, CA. Submit your data retroactively.

Old Dominion Racing is giving you the opportunity to see who can keep up with Mike Wardian, American marathoner/ultra-marathoner who continues to #embarrassgravity and defy expectations. The Cannonball Run Challenge is the first installment of the Mike Wardian Outdoor Challenge Series. And if you are lucky Captain Chaos will be on your side!

ODR is using the state-of-the-art web app to track your progress. Do the challenge concurrently with your training. You will be able to use the raceIOT app the day after you register. We port new registrations daily.

A poriton of proceeds will go to the LINK Against Hunger Foundation ( Run across the country to help a great cause!

Sign up any time during the event and raceIOT will pull your historic data.

All you need is a device and 20 seconds to connect your account to raceIOT and then Let The Data Flow. 
You're thinking that’s nice, but I don’t want to have to manually put in two months worth of data…Well, we got you covered! We can pull your history (for Garmin, Strava, and Fitbit) for as far back as you need. So you don’t have to spend more time in front of a computer!

We do allow you to manually put your data in, if you still want to go that route.
