The Rules

Here is how it works: Register for the challenge any time from now until December 12th. This is a run/walk streak with a twist. On day 1 you will run/walk 1 kilometer ( .62 of a mile) then on day 2 you will run/walk 2 kilometers (1.24 miles), on day 3 you will run/walk 3 kilometers (1.87 miles) and so on for 12 consecutive days. The 12th day you will run/walk 12 kilometers (7.46 miles). You will log your run or walk each day for the 12 days on Run Sign Up. For registering you will receive a 12k’s of Christmas Sportek Scarf.

Day 1 - 1 kilometer - .62 mile - 2.5 laps on a track
Day 2 - 2 kilometers - 1.24 miles - 5 laps on a track
Day 3 - 3 kilometers - 1.87 miles - 7.5 laps on a track
Day 4 - 4 kilometers - 2.49 miles - 10 laps on a track

This is a run/walk streak challenge, biking, elliptical and other cardio machines are great but do not count in this challenge. You can use a treadmill, you will post your kilometers to Run Sign Up manually like every participant. 

The kilometers per day can be broken up however you would like to. You can do them all in one activity or you can split them up. You need to get the total kilometers completed within the same day period. You cannot bank kilometers early on in the challenge and have those excess kilometers roll over to the days at the end.
Example of what is accepted: Day 10 - 10 kilometers - run before work 7 kilometers then walk after work 3 kilometers on the same day.
Example of what is not accepted: Day 1 - 1 kilometer - run 5 kilometers before work then walk 5 kilometers after work. THEN on Day 12 - 12 kilometers - run 3 kilometers before work and use the extra 9 kilometers from Day 1 to total 12 kilometers.

Raffle Prizes

We will have 2 raffle drawings for participants in the 12k's of Christmas. After day 6 we will have a raffle drawing for a Saucony backpack, all participants that are still alive in the challenge will automatically be entered in the raffle. We will announce the winner on our social media accounts. After the completion of the challenge we will have a final drawing for a pair of Saucony sneakers. All participants that complete the challenge will be automatically entered in the raffle. We will announce the winner on our Instagram Live on Monday, December 28th (time to be determined).

Run for Good

For every kilometer that we run this holiday season our Saucony Shadow rep will donate 1 cent to the John Theissen's Children Foundation through the Saucony Run for Good campaign. 1 cent doesn't sound like much but with the collective SRC running community we can log enough kilometers to make a difference for a family(s) this holiday season.

You will also have the opportunity to make a donation during the registration process if you would like.
