Description

Bay State Race Services presents the New England Road Trip virtual challenge.  We want to bring the running community back together, virtually. We have seven virtual road trips for you to choose from with varying distances from 52 miles, all the way up to 716 miles (all distances are best approximations). Choose the road trip course you would most like to travel and get moving. Registration will remain open until October 31st. Anyone can register to join us anytime until then.

We’ve added some exciting new features to this challenge. We’ve got map tracking, milestone badges, and participant up-loadable photo albums. 

The duration to complete your road trip challenge will depend upon the distance you’ve selected. The shorter distances will have between 52 – 83 days while the longest, 716 miles, will have until December 31st (144 days). 

"Double dipping" is allowed. If you're already participating in a virtual run those same miles can be used and logged here.

Complete your mileage as you see fit by walking, hiking, or running either on a treadmill, on the trails, or on the street. You do not have to walk, hike, or run every day, you just have to finish the total distance allocated to your challenge distance.

All Participants will receive an official New England Road Trip virtual challenge Sport-Tek RaceMesh performance t-shirt and a commemorative 4” stainless steel medal with neck ribbon after completing their chosen challenge distance. All made in the USA! 

Please see the instructions within the Results information section on how to submit and track your progress. As you upload your mileage every day you'll see your little marker move along the map.
