Registration OPENS for Previous WVStrong Participants on 5/14 at 8PM!
Registration open for everyone else (if you are new to our challenges) on 5/16 at 12:01AM.
We have made these challenges so that anyone can complete them. The challenge starts June 1 and ends September 9.
Route #1 - 222 Miles which will be 2.22 Miles/Day
Route #2 - 435 Miles which will be 4.35 Miles/Day
This year there will be TWO Divisions.
*Please note this is a flexible idea we are trying. If you want to continue how we have been doing the challenges please simply select the non-competitive division.*
A. Non-Competitive Division
This division is for those that are non-competitive (you record everything that you do - running, walking, mowing grass, grocery shopping, all your daily steps, etc).
B. Competitive Division
This division is for those that want to be competitive (hence you will only be logging/recording your EXERCISE Miles). This is all on the honor system but we will be verifying the leaders throughout the challenge so if you get an email you will be required to show proof of your mileage on an application such as Garmin Connect, Strava. Please note that if you are contacted and fail to provide proof you will be removed from the competitive division for suspected cheating. There will be an award for the top male and top female who logs the most exercise miles under this division (upon verification). Feel free to log your time as well with your runs but please note that the award will be based on your mileage logged.
All participants 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! All registered participants will earn a commemorative light-weight shirt hoodie. Those that complete the challenge will earn an awesome challenge medal(s)! Everything will be shipped out at the conclusion of the challenge.
Registration officially ends July 31st so if you want to take part in the challenge please be registered by then. This allows us to place our orders and get everyone their swag right at the completion of the event.
Runners and Walkers will be able to select which color medal(s) they want to earn. Either Blue/Gold/White or Green/Black/White!
You will earn ONE medal upon completing 222 miles this summer (remember that is about 2.2 Miles/Day).
You will earn a SECOND medal upon completing 435 miles this summer (that is about 4.35 Miles/Day).
Then if you look, the medals pin together!
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 435 Mile Challenge is $10 more due to the second medal.
All donations and net proceeds from this challenge will go to benefit The Fix 'Em Clinic!
The Fix’Em Clinic’s sole purpose is to reduce suffering by substantially reducing overpopulation through spay/neuter, and keeping animals healthy through basic wellness care. Providing services at an affordable cost makes them accessible to more people. Your tax-deductible donation will help us turn the tide of overpopulation in southern West Virginia and make a life-changing difference for dogs, cats and their owners across our region.
