Like past years, the main level will challenge runners and walkers to complete at least four cumulative half-marathon (13.1-mile) distances, a total of 52.4 miles. Cyclists will now be challenged to complete the length of the D&L Trail, a total of 156 miles during the month (or 41.25 miles a week). These are great challenges for anyone just starting out or trying to get into a regular exercise routine.
The super level challenges avid runners and walkers to complete a marathon (26.2 miles) every week for a total of 104.8 miles and challenges avid cyclists to complete two lengths of the D&L Trail (330 miles). You can accrue the miles anywhere; they don't have to be on the D&L Trail itself. This challenge is for experienced walkers, runners, and cyclists who've crushed the challenge in past years or motivated newcomers.
Miles can be accrued over several workouts on the 165-mile D&L Trail or somewhere else, any time between April 1 and April 30. You select where, when, and how, then register your miles easily on RunSignup’s website.
100% of proceeds from the D&L Trail Challenge will support trail building and programming along the wonderful D&L Trail. If you love the D&L Trail and our region's great outdoor areas, we ask you to join us in this year’s event. Please consider creating your own fundraiser in support of the D&L Trail too! It's easy, on the donate page, choose "Become a Fundraiser" and share with family and friends!
A real-time Leader Board will engage your competitiveness. You can race against a personal mileage goal or simply participate for fun and fitness.
***Disclaimer: Do not run, walk, or bike on unsafe or closed roads (trails, roads, parks). Follow social distancing guidelines and any other requirements set forth by local, state, and federal agencies. This is a virtual event only, not a mass gathering. ***
