You will earn ONE medal upon completing any of the individual routes (100 Miles/125 Miles/150 Miles).
You will earn a SECOND medal if you select and complete the Super Challenge (375 Miles). 

ALL miles are counted! Running and walking! Therefore, this challenge is suitable for those currently running...or those that want to get started.

You will have the ability to go into your account and log your miles at any point. If you do better than expected you can upgrade your challenge at anytime. 

The 375 Mile Challenge is $10 more due to the second medal. 


Races might be cancelled but running is not! Take advantage of this time to ramp up your training and get ready for when live races begin back! 

Due to popular demand, we are adding an Eastern Kentucky Running/Walking challenge for those who want to explore Kentucky (you can participate from anywhere as long as you live in the USA)! This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to run/walk Eastern Kentucky virtually! Use this opportunity to log in some much needed miles. 

We have made these challenges so that anyone can complete them. The challenge starts June 1 and ends September 9 so you will have 100 days to get your mileage goal accomplished! We have made these challenges for both your walkers and your seasonal runners! 

Route #1 (Pikeville, KY to Ashland, KY) - 100 Miles
Route #2 (Ashland, KY to Lexington, KY) - 125 Miles
Route #3 (Lexington, KY to Pikeville, KY) - 150 Miles

And...if you feel like doing the super challenge - you can select to do all three routes for a total of 375 Miles and you will earn an additional medal! 

You will have the ability to log your miles, track your progress, and check the leader board daily! Invite your friends/family to this challenge to stay motivated/active all summer long!
