Kick-off the 13-week program by joining us on Black Friday (Friday, November 25) to pick up your SWAG Bag. Special shopping deals and our knowledgeable team will be there ready to make sure you have everything you need to succeed at this Challenge. If you are joining the Challenge from outside of the area (more than 45 miles from the store), we will ship your SWAG Bag to you on Monday, November 28.
Starting Sunday, November 27 your goal is to complete a minimum of 2 outdoor runs (or walks) per week of at least 20 minutes each. The runs/walks can be done anywhere as long as they are OUTDOORS. We will be offering a few in-person weekly Fun Run/walks for those who are local and wish to participate however the in-person run/walks are completely optional and are not a requirement for participation. Additional challenge specifics are below.
Optional In-Person Meet-ups for those local to the Fox Valley:

PROGRAM DETAILS Three emails will come out during the 13 weeks of the Challenge; one at the start of each month (December, January, February). They will be full of tips, additional ways to stay motivated, and various bonus materials, so be sure to review them at the start of each month. They will also include instructions for logging your weekly activities. Logging regularly will give you opportunities to unlock additional benefits of the program, including:
This program will not include any formal training program or curriculum, it is simply an accountability challenge to keep everyone moving during the cold and dark winter months! All paces and levels including walkers are welcome. Everyone will likely be completing different distances at various paces on their own and during the optional group meet-ups, we love this! We will take a group picture at each meet-up and then everyone can be on their way.
Already planning to join us? Then be sure to register PRIOR to Thursday, November 3 and join us for our Cold, Colder, Coldest informational/shopping event. Any event attendees signed up for the Challenge will receive a Bonus Gift. Plus, this will be an opportunity to learn and get set up with gear that is most appropriate based on specific temperatures/conditions and see the latest styles.
