The Badass Wolverine Challenge runs from February 21st- March 20th. 

It is not too late to sign up! Sign up through February 24. But you must have workouts to log from Feb 21, 22, and 23!

Do you have what it takes to be as badass as a wolverine?

Wolverines are the ultimate winter athletes, covering hundreds of miles over rugged terrain every month. Can you match the miles?

The Challenge:  Get out and cover the miles, like a badass wolverine.

Choose from three levels:

Beginner Badass Event:  Log at least one mile per day

Badass Event: Log at least three miles per day

Big Badass Event: Log at least five miles per day

How it works:

Commit to one of the levels above, get outdoors and log that distance (or more) every day, and get Badass points for more mileage. The individuals and teams who accrue the most mileage win the Challenge.

The details:

The Challenge begins on February 21st and ends on March 20th. You must enter your daily mileage to remain in the competition. You’ll have four days following a workout to enter your information. If after four days you don’t enter any information, you’re out of the competition.

Starting February 21st, 2016 follow the steps below on either your smartphone or desktop browser to log your miles. Please note that prior to February 21st, you will not have the ability to log runs and will not see the "Run Log" button referenced below:

    Why Wolverines?

    Wolverines (Gulo gulo) are the ultimate winter athletes, enduring extreme conditions, scaling rugged mountains, defending vast territories, and always moving. They are fine-tuned to the winter environment and spend the coldest months of the year cruising through their snowbound territories while other big carnivores are asleep (bears) or sticking to less snowy regions (mountain lions, wolves). On average, a wolverine moves 15-17 km/day (or about 9-10 miles/day), and covers thousands of miles over the course of its life, dispersing and then tirelessly patrolling its remote domain. For sheer spirit and endurance, the wolverine is the unparalleled winter badass.

    This event supports research and conservation of wolverines through affiliation with the Wolverine Foundation, a US non-profit dedicated to advancing wolverine science. You may not be able to make it out to one of our remote field sites to volunteer with a project, but you can participate by evoking your own inner badass during the Wolverine Winter Challenge. As you get outside each day, you’ll be paralleling not only the wolverine itself, but the adventurous life in the field of wolverine researchers, who log hundreds of miles on skis and snowshoes tracking the elusive species. Funds from the Wolverine Challenge go directly to the Wolverine Foundation to support our projects. You can find out more by exploring the rest of TWF’s website.
