We challenge you to walk or run at least 1 mile a day Feb. 1 - Mar. 31. Similar to the Northwest Winter Challenge, but with a "3 strikes, you're out" rule so you can miss two days and remain active in the challenge. Indoor and outdoor miles count. At least one mile a day outdoors earns Winter Warrior Overtime status.
CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGE
You can challenge yourself to any level and can change your mind at any time (you won’t be asked to commit to a level upon registration). But if you miss three days, you’re out!
- Bronze: 1 mile run/walk per day
- Silver: 3 miles run/walk per day
- Gold: 5 miles run/walk per day
- Winter Warrior: run/walk at least 1 mile per day outside
To complete your challenge, you must run or walk the minimum distance every day, not just averaging that mileage. For example, if you run 5+ miles every day for 58 days and 1 mile on the 59th day, you will finish at the Bronze level.
LOG YOUR RUNS IN THE NEW AND IMPROVED RACEDAY APP
We’ll keep track of your daily mileage. Each day, sign in via the Raceday website
(racemenu.com/raceday), or on the RaceMenu Raceday iOS mobile app (which you can download from the App Store). Please note that the app will not be live until February 1, 2019. You'll have four days to log each daily run. For example, you have until 11:59pm on February 5th to log your February 1st run, or until 11:59pm February 20th to log your February 16th run. If you miss the 4-day deadline, you're out of the challenge--no exceptions. Detailed run log instructions.

JOIN THE TEAM CHALLENGE FOR EXTRA BRAGGING RIGHTS
The Northwest Winter Challenge is much more fun when you create a team and get your friends and family involved. There's strength in numbers, because the total mileage for all team members determines your team's ranking on the leaderboard.
WEEKLY PRIZE RAFFLES
Check the SHOES-n-FEET website for the winners of weekly prize drawings! We have a great pile of prizes to award all contest long. Some prizes will be awarded to randomly selected runners, while others will be awarded to runners based on speed, distance, and creative #northwestwinterchallege posts on social media. Prizes include free entry to Northwest Trail Runs races, gift cards to shop at SHOES-n-FEET, gift cards for shoes and gear from top brands.
ORDER YOUR SHIRT, AND GET YOUR NAME ON IT
We will have commemorative long sleeve shirts with the name of each Winter Warrior (anyone who gets outdoors for at least 1 mile each day) on the back. You'll purchase the shirt for $15 as part of the registration process. Or this year you can choose a lightweight hoodie for $20.
EBC helps kids thrive by providing basic necessities for children so that EBC’s partners — schools, human service agencies, food banks, hospitals--can help families become stable, safe, housed, fed and employed. Relying almost exclusively on volunteers, EBC takes in donations of children’s clothing and goods from the community and supplements donations with purchases of the absolute essentials for children we guarantee to provide: baby food, formula, car seats, pack n’ plays and diapers. As the vital safety net under family-assistance providers and families, EBC annually distributes over 70,000 health and care items for kids from birth to age 12 directly to agencies in King, south Snohomish, Kitsap and west Pierce counties. Volunteers contribute an average of 2,700 hours each month at the EBC Central hub, EBC – West Sound hub and EBC – Northshore hub. Founded by pediatric nurse practitioner, Karen Ridlon in 1990, EBC helps more than 800 children each week. Connect with us: find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/eastsidebabycorner.
