Join us in our goal to log enough miles to circle the equator and summit the tallest mountains to visit our loved ones.
The pandemic has greatly impacted our ability to do things that we wouldn't typically hesitate in doing. For many traveling to visit friends and family is not an option due to many different factors. This April we want to come together and conquer that distance (virtually) as a team. The coronavirus might limit our ability to gather in large groups, but running, walking, hiking and getting fresh air are all still encouraged activities, even for those sheltered in place. Join our team as we motivate and encourage each other to exercise during the month of April.
The participants of this “virtual event” will work together to accumulate miles and elevation over the month. If we all collectively conquer our challenges we will earn a gift card to Sayville/Smithtown Running Company.
Challenges for SRC's Run Around the World 2: Ain't No Mountain High Enough:
- Run the collective distance to visit our loved ones - $10 Gift Card- Distance TBD - During the registration process you will be asked a series of questions about the distance it would take to visit a loved one that you were unable to visit due to the pandemic. This can be as close as the next town over or half way across the world, whoever it is you just were unable to visit them due to the corona virus.
- Run Around the World 1x - $15 Gift Card - Distance: 24,901 Miles
- Summit the 10 Highest Peaks - $7 Gift Card - Distance: 274,874 feet
- Summit the 25 Highest Peaks - $8 Gift Card - Distance: 665,070 feet
Whether you walk 1 mile all month, or run 300 miles, whether you climb 100 feet or 30,000 feet, you’re still eligible for the gift card. This is a group effort! Along the way there will be raffles, prizes, and motivational checkpoints as well to keep everyone on their toes and spirits high. Our goal is to work together, but separately.
To participate, register on RunSignUp or RegSRC.com and start logging miles and elevation!
More specific instructions will be included below and in the confirmation email when you register.
The prize is based on the achievement of the group collectively. Everyone will win or lose the award together.

Activities that count towards the goal:
Both manually logged entries and GPS logged entries are allowable.
Activities that do not count:
Q: Do I need to run every day?
A: No. If you run or walk once during the whole month, or twice every single day it makes no difference on your eligibility. Cumulative miles & elevation are all we're worried about.
Q: How do I figure out my elevation?
A: Many GPS & Smartwatches will calculate the elevation as you run. Your fitness app might also provide an elevation gain or climb number. Some treadmills will also calculate your elevation as you do inclines on the treadmill. Here are a few screenshots on where to find the elevation on Garmin & Strava.
