One NY CARES Virtual Challenge

September 8 - December 24, 2020 NY State, NY 13202 US

Team Rules


One NY Cares Virtual Challenge 


Unlike the original One NY Challenge event, participants will not have the ability to create their own team. Instead, participants will be encouraged to join a non-profit partner to support and compete for! For every participant a charity team receives, we'll donate $10 back.

If you are part of a non-profit (501C-3) and are interested in partnering with us, please email

  •  All teams will be automatically entered into the team ranking leaderboard 
  • The top 10 members from each team with the highest cumulative mileage will be used to compute the team total and advance the team on a virtual team course.
  • Team members will log their mileage individually (like everyone else) and team scoring will automatically be calculated.

Popular Team Questions

Q. I'm already registered but want to join a team, can I?

A. Yes! Follow these instructions:

- Log into your Runsignup profile,  go to my Profile- My Registered Races- OneNYCares-Manage Registration, then click Group/Team at the bottom of page and Join Existing Group/Team, find the group you want to join on the list and save.
Q. Is this a relay? 
A. No, each member will be expected to complete the distance they registered for individually. 


Q. Can I combine running/walking miles with bike/wheel miles?
A. No, the One NY Cares Challenge will allow you to log your activity by whether you submit miles that are on foot - running/walking- or on wheels -biking/wheelchair.  You may log different activities in the same day, and you will be listed on each leaderboard based on the activity you declared.  Running/walking miles are only shown on the Running/Walking Leaderboard for each distance.  Bike/Wheeled miles are only displayed on the Biking/Wheeling Leaderboard for each distance.  Running and biking miles are not allowed to be combined together to complete a distance.  You may, however, compete at one distance while on foot, and at another distance while biking.  You will be able to choose your options on your daily submission dashboard in your leaderboard account.

Simply put: we have two (2) submission categories only. 1. Run/walking and 2. cycling/wheel. They will have separate maps.

Example, if you register for the 400 mile category, you will be responsible for completing either 400 miles on foot run/walking or 400 miles on the bike. They will NOT add together. It's certainly possible that you may do 250 on the bike and 150 running and not be listed as a finisher.
