This will be the 2nd annual Hubert Celebrates Honey Bees virtual challenge and just like the inaugural year, you get to customize your medal!
Stay active all month long by running or walking up to 8 distances to fill in your honey comb.
You can do all of the same distance or mix it up! Because of the popularity of other distances, I've added a couple more options this year.
Distances options for honey cell tokens:
Honey bees are incredible little creatures and Hubert just adores them. He makes a point to plant lots of flowers for all his pollinator friends every spring.
It’s time for you to get busy building up your endurance for all those fall treats coming your way and celebrate our little endurance athlete friends in 2021!
I STILL don't run unless a serial killer clown is after me. Can I walk these distances instead?
For sure! Many people can walk faster than I can run! Walk with your pupper, walk around the local park, or walk back and forth in your kitchen--- it's all good!
I don't have a GPS watch or anything like that. Do you need proof?
No GPS watch needed. Just keep track of your time- you will need to record it along with your distance traveled. This is on the honor system.
Do I have to run all (8) distances before I get my medal?
As soon as you complete and record your first distance, your medal will ship with your first honey comb token. You can stop and not do anymore distances, or you can continue completing distances the remainder of the month to get your remaining honey comb tokens. The idea is to encourage you to stay active all month, but if you only manage to do one distance, that is totally cool too! (Remaining tokens will ship at the end of the challenge or when you enter all 6 distances)
I don't run long distance- can I just run the 1 mile (8) different times?
Of course! Everyone is in a different place right now, and if you feel like challenging yourself to do the 1 mile distance (8) times, then you do it! You will get (8) 1-mile tokens and you be your awesome self!!
If I run the 100 miles, doesn’t that cover all the distances?
The idea is to stay fit ALL SEPTEMBER LONG, so you should run the different distances separately and enter them separately. Bees travel different distances all day long! You should try to do that all month long and keep your fitness going into fall (the time of year with THE BEST FOOD).
Does the 100K, 50M, and/or 100M need to be completed in one day?
These longer distances should be completed in ONE ATTEMPT. I know that 100 milers often take longer than 24 hours, but please don’t break this up into different activity sessions.
Can I do more than one distance in a 24-hour period?
Yes! You can do as many as you want in a day. Want to bang out (6) 1-mile distances and fill up your honey comb right away- do it! Have a long run planned and want to bang out the 1-mile, the 5K and the 10K in one day? Do it! BUT!!! Keep track of the individual times as you will need to enter those into the website 😊
Do you put the honey comb tokens in the medal for me?
Nope--- this is a medal you get to customize yourself! Like a little DIY project to keep you entertained and motivated!
When they arrive, you pop them into whichever honey comb you want with a dab of glue. Just about any glue will work and TA-DA! Your very own medal!
I am not in the US, can I participate?
I'm opening up international registration, but I have to let you know--- I cannot guarantee it will make it to you. New shipping requirements are making it really cost prohibitive and difficult. BUT! I will try my hardest to get your medals to you. 🐝
