From the Organizer

Keep the good times going this spring, and prepare for your summer with the Spring Melt Challenge. Run or walk at least one mile per day, indoors or outdoors, from February 1st to St. Paddy's Day, March 17. Complete at least one-mile each day outside and qualify as a Winter Warrior. This contest will help raise money for Eastside Baby Corner, who provides crucial support to children in King, Snohomish, and Pierce Counties. Get started on your spring training by signing up for our New Year Challenge and running or walking every day in January 2021.
Eastside Baby Corner

How it works. You track minutes for running and walking using the RaceDay interface by RaceMenu. You'll have four days to log each daily activity. For example, you have until 11:59 pm on February 5 to log your February 1st activity or until 11:59 pm on February 20 to record your February 16th activity. If you miss the 4-day deadline, you're out of the challenge. 

Choose your challenge. You can challenge yourself to any level and change your mind at any time (you won’t be asked to commit to a level upon registration). The Spring Melt Challenge has a three-strikes and your out rule. Miss more than two days, and 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 44 days and 1 mile on the 45th day, you will finish at the Bronze level. 

Be a Winter Warrior. You may do mileage indoors or outdoors and remain in the contest, BUT you are only a Winter Warrior if you do at least one mile a day outside. Only Winter Warriors get their name on the back of the shirt and hoodie.

Plus, many more prizes to be announced!
