Run Virtual: Any Time, Any Place


It's time to get lit like a Christmas Tree this Holiday season. We all know the holidays are stressful, even more so now with COVID, so lets get Smashed like Santa with our friends and family, far and wide. Each race registration comes with an ugly sweater themed long-sleeve t-shirt, unique ornament finisher medal that can hang right on your holiday tree, a pair of holiday socks and a beanie hat.  First 300 participants receive a Santa beard.  This would not only be an awesome virtual event for you to complete but also a great gift idea! 

We have an awesome shirt for you.

This race generates funds for the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation (Nik's Wish) to help young adults in need. Make-A-Wish stops supporting after 17 years of age leaving young adults to fight alone. Nik believed that young adults need a wish too, so the night before cancer took his life, Nik's wish was for us to help. Our all volunteer charity has helped 182 cancer warriors in 32 states have a wish to create precious moments of joy. Sadly many who we help do not beat cancer, so these memories are priceless to the families. COVID has hit our fundraising activities hard and wishes like these are in need of funding.
