Beginning January 1st we’ll RUN again as Heroes by RESOLVING to Change Lives of others and our won. Set your own personal mileage goal for the month and commit to the 1% better each day rule - focusing on small wins each day.

Step 1: Commit to Changing Lives in 2022

Step 2: Set a personal mileage goal for January. Set your mileage goal in RunSignup when you log your first activity.


Step 3: Global RTCL Blood Drive Last week of January

  • January is Blood Donor Month and what better way to save lives than to donate our life giving blood to those in need the last week of January. In fact, we feel so strongly about this we are declaring this Global RTCL Blood Donation Week!

    Or search for ways to give blood in your home country.



We're working on a new concept for 2022! Each month we'll offer the option to purchase a commemorative round magnetic medal to celebrate and remember your achievements. Soon we'll also offer the option to purchase this custom RTCL medal hanger directly from our Shopify store that's made specifically to support our monthly challenges AND all the race/challenge medals you collect throughout the year. 

RTCL Medal hanger sold separately.

The round commemorative medal for January will be based off of last year's medal concept. Pre-order during registration. Design coming soon!
