The Races

  • Run/Walk for runners and walkers. This can be any form of walking or running, including using a treadmill. Miles logged work at home cleaning or working does not count, just activities meant as exercise.
  • Multisport for everyone. Combine all the distance you do on your bike (indoors or outdoors) as well as running, walking, skiing, swimming, paddle boarding, and rowing.
  • Team Challenge - all sports. This can be a team of up to 8, biking, walking, running, swimming, rowing, and paddleboarding indoors or out. Again, household chores don't count. This is a great option for friends and co-workers. You can also add team members at any time.
