This social distancing has us craving some participation. We're sure you're going as stir crazy as we are. We have a NEED to feel connected even if we can't do so in person. That's why Gravel City Adventure & Supply Co. has created this virtual run and ride opportunity. We also know that people are hurting from the fall out of this bug. That's why all proceeds after costs are covered will be donated to the Greater Emporia Area Disaster Relief Fund.
You will have the opportunities each month to achieve a unique challenge by way of running and/or riding! The beauty is that virtual events allow you to participate when and where the time is right for you.
May - The May challenge starts simply; run three miles or ride 20 miles! Stay tuned for the upcoming monthly challenges.
June - The June challenge asks runners and riders to push their limits as they try to log the longest single activity they can! Time is unlimited, but you can reach the top of the leaderboard logging more miles at once than any other participant. Not sure you want to go for the win? That's fine! Make your competition your self!
July - 620 Challenge! Runners will have as many attempts as they wish to cover as much distance as they can in 6 minutes, 20 seconds. Cyclists, how far can you ride in 62 minutes? Upload your results to our leaderboard!
August - The 620 challenge is back with a twist. This time runners will complete at least 62.0 miles throughout the month. Cyclists will ride 62.0+ miles in one activity. Be sure to enter the details of your progress on our results page.
September - The Equinox Challenge! In the month where day and night are equal, challenge yourself to complete an AM and PM activity on the same day (bonus points if both activities are for the same amount of time). To share your results, take a picture/screenshot of your activity details, and share them on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags #ERCSuperSeries and #NoPlaceLikeHome.
October - It was a dark and stormy night... actually avoid the storms, but grab your light and reflective gear for a 10k (6.2 mile) run/walk or 10 mile ride at night. To share your results, take a picture/screenshot of your activity details, and share them on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags #ERCSuperSeries and #NoPlaceLikeHome.
November - This month, the challenge is to complete an activity every day of the month. That's 30 consecutive days of running/walking or biking. (Remember, it can be hard on your body to exercise every day if you're not used to it, so it's ok to go slow/short on a some of these, as long as you get out and do something!) To share your results, take a picture/screenshot of your activity details, and share them on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags #ERCSuperSeries and #NoPlaceLikeHome.
December - The Up, Up, and Away Challenge! To get ready for take-off, runners/walkers and bikers to achieve as much elevation gain as possible in a single activity. If you need help tracking your elevation gain, Strava is a free app that can record your activity data, including elevation (there are other apps that will work too). To share your results, take a picture/screenshot of your elevation gain details, and share them on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags #ERCSuperSeries and #NoPlaceLikeHome.
$15 per event (each month).
We all know swag is important! Here is what you can expect:
Prizes will be mailed at the end of each month's challenge. Only one challenge per month (run or ride) counts toward prize progression.
As our communities move through this pandemic, please be sure to adhere to your local public health organization's guidelines for social distancing, exercise, etc.
