FRW Ready Set Snow Challenge

Mon January 1 - Sun March 10 Anywhere, NY 12065 US


PO BOX 999
Anywhere, NY US 12065


Back again for Winter 2024! Let's help each other stay motivated this winter. Once again we will be logging activities, but this time we are tossing the challenges out to you! They all revolve around run/walk/stroll. You may find some fun and others challenging. The challenge runs from Jan 1 - March 10, 2024. 

Here's how it works:

You will log each completed task into Run Signup and check off a box for each "scavenger hunt-like" task completed.  Complete 40 tasks and in addition to earning a fleece blanket, you will be entered to win awesome gift cards.        

The cost to register is $25 on day 1 (with no tasks revealed) on 12/20/2023. On 12/22 we will release the first 25 tasks with the entry going up to $30. On 12/25/2023 all 50 tasks will be revealed and registration will be $35 until we start.  Challenge registration will close on Friday 1/12/2024.  

SWAG: Participants will receive a Ready Set Snow fleece blanket with their entry fee. We will mail as you complete the challenge.  If you complete 40 or more challenges you will be entered to win gift cards from places like Fleet Feet, Amazon, Target and more!

You can expect an email with the specifics on how to log your tasks into Run Signup, additional info on sharing in the Facebook group, and more once you register.  Please be patient and wait for this email.  There is really nothing you can do before 1/1 anyway, other than map out your plan of attack.  If you don't check your email or register with an email that you don't regularly check, you will miss important communications about the challenge.  Important communications will also be posted in our private Facebook group, which can be found here.  Please request to join once you are registered.  

Tasks - first 10 will be revealed starting on 12/22/2023

If you are registering before all tasks are revealed, you should be aware that nearly all of the tasks should be accessible by everyone regardless of running or walking experience.  Some are challenging and will require some effort, thinking, planning, and creativity, but there isn't anything that is extremely physically challenging such as scaling a rock wall etc.  With that said, we believe that every single person who registers can absolutely complete at least 30 tasks.  Getting all 50 tasks will definitely be more difficult but that is exactly why it is called a challenge! Task examples might include:  Run/walk past a brewery, complete a run/walk wearing a lei, take a picture of a tree with lights on it on a run/walk, complete a run/walk wearing a holiday outfit and take a picture. Once you hit 40 tasks you will be entered to win gift cards.   

The rules (please read everything before registering): 
* All tasks must be completed between 1/1 and 3/10/2024, tasks completed outside of the challenge window will not count.  You can't start early!
* Running and walking counts
* All tasks should be completed during a run or walk of at least 1 mile.  
* While you CAN complete multiple tasks during a single run or walk, you will need to do a mile for each box you are marking off.  So if you are marking off 3 badges, your run/walk will need to be at least 3 miles.  If you are marking off 10 boxes, your run/walk will need to be at least 10 miles.  
* All tasks must be marked complete in Run Signup to count, there are absolutely no exceptions.  Detailed instructions on how to mark tasks as complete will be emailed prior to the start of the challenge.  Once you mark the task complete, you will earn credit.    
* This challenge is basically the honor system but participants are highly encouraged to share photographs of their completed tasks in the Facebook group.  It's a lot of fun to see how other participants are tackling the challenge!  
* PLEASE register with an email address that you regularly check, not your old account with 150,000 unread messages that you haven't looked at since 2006.  

Once you register, please share the challenge on your Facebook page.  Our challenges are way more fun when done with friends! If 3 people register through your link, you will receive $10 of your registration fee back.     

Registration closes on January 12, 2024 at midnight!
