Celebrating California!

With the launch of our first race in our Run Across America - The 50 State Challenge, our minds settled quickly on California.  Whether we consider the history of the gold rush to the current iconic California lifestyle, our hearts were drawn to California.  Scott McKenzie's hit song inspires our love-in with nostalgia hearkening to San Francisco, almost daring us to run this race with flowers in our hair and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the forefront of our minds.

You may be wondering why you want to run a virtual race (see above) and why you might want to run our virtual race at that!  No other virtual race gives you the same amount of goodies and offers you the type of amenities that ours does.

Receive a customized, collectible bib before you race

Other virtual races will give an option to print a cheap printout of a bib with questionable results depending on your printer.  In our race, we will send you a beautiful, full-colored high-quality waterproof bib (just like you get with a physical location race) that you can race with and keep as a collectible with all your other 49 states.  We will send that to you in the mail (you heard that right) along with your pins and instructions on how you can submit your time.

Receive a beautiful medal

With your bib you'll receive your very own, collectible 3.5" medal to celebrate your achievement! That way you don't have to wait to brag about your accomplishments - you can wear it around and show off just how beautiful your new, shiny medal is right after you complete your race!

Receive the coveted 50-State Challenge medal (for FREE) when you complete them all

Yep, you heard us right.  We will offer you a sizeable medal to commemorate your completion of the 50 State Challenge.  There's no shipping, no cost to you - just a huge THANK YOU!!! for running all of our races.

Medal design will be released soon!

Feed America One State at a Time

We are excited because we think our bling is pretty sweet.  But we would be remiss if we didn't share how much more excited we are to offer this opportunity for us all to give back to those in need.  With that, our goal is to help feed the nation, one state at a time, as we Run Across America.  For everything purchased in conjunction with the Run Across America - California race, we will donate 10% of the proceeds to a local food bank in the state highlighted for the race.  In this case, we will all be running and donating those proceeds to a local California Food Bank.

We want to share an astounding fact we found for the California Food Banks: California food banks turn every $1 donated into 5 pounds worth of food.

Just think how many pounds of food we can all give together as we all join together and Run for GOOD.  We're excited to be a part and can't wait to see how this grows state by state as we journey across America!

But that's not all...

LOL - we've always wanted to say that.  In all seriousness, on top of these amazing medals, you can also do the following:

  • Sign up for our Motivate Me to Run Facebook group where you can join other runners, just like you that want to increase their fitness and work towards incremental goals in their running journey!  In our group you additionally have access to a certified running coach to ask your training and overall running questions.
  • Join our Motivate Me to run Strava group where you can train with those same like-minded runners and encourage one another in all your fitness activities.
