Barn to Run Summer Challenge

Sat August 1 - Mon August 31

Need a goal and want to have some fun tracking your progress against it and then get some cool swag for achieving it? Take on the Barn to Run Summer Challenge!  This virtual running challenge offers 4 distances to choose from - 26.2 miles, 50 miles, 100 miles or 200 miles - where you get to choose where (trail or road... near or far) and when you run as long as you complete the challenge between the dates of August 1st and August 31st. Log your miles after each run and you'll track your progress along a pre-designed "route art" course that draws a horse (26.2 miles), a chicken (50 miles), a goat (100 miles) or a pig (200 miles)! And then when you're done we'll mail you your swag... the longer you run, the more swag you receive!


As you complete each workout upload your time and distance and you will be able to track your progress along the "route art" course designed for your event. The 26.2 mile challenge is route art in the design of a pumpkin, the 50 mile challenge is a scarecrow, the 100 mile challenge is a farmer and the 200 miler is a ear of corn. Other virtual challenges have you run across states or pedal up Mt Everest... we're Barn to Run so we felt it was only fitting -- and fun! -- to have you run around harvest related items.

NOTE: You do NOT need to run (walk or hike) the route art course we've designed. You choose the roads or trails and what route you want (or run/walk on a treadmill) and then record your distance and time. You then upload this data to the RunSignUp platform (it's super easy and we'll explain how) and then you'll see your "pin" move along the route art course we've made. We came up with this as a fun way to track your progress! To see mile markers on each course click the links below to access the courses on MapMyRun:
