Have you ever wanted to run across the United States?
Well now here is your chance! We are challenging you to take this once in a lifetime opportunity to race across the States virtually!
Each week we will reveal a new state and new medal that will correspond with that state. Once you complete all 50 states, they will all fit together to display the entire United States of America!
Your journey will start in Key West, Florida at the Southern Most Point. The course will then head through the Florida Keys to the mainland and travel North along the West coast of the Sunshine State taking you to the Pan-Handle. Your journey will then start heading West ...From there you will need to wait another week to find out the direction your journey will take you. The route through the State of Florida will take you almost 900 miles and you certainly will learn all about Florida Man along the way! Do you think there is a news heading that says "Florida Man runs entire state of Florida"? I am positive we will have some of those stories when this is all done! But hey, its virtual, it still counts!
Each state must be registered for individually and registration for that state will open as that state and the route is announced. Once you register you will receive an email confirmation and the route and the total mileage you need to complete for each state.
Disclaimer: This event is totally on the honor system. If you feel the need to cheat, please do not make your results public. If you do cheat and we find out, we will delete your name out of the results and disqualify you without any refund. By registering you acknowledge this rule and that you will complete this event honorably and not falsify your distances. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS - NO EXCEPTIONS!
