After my fall marathon, I found myself lacking motivation to stay as active during the winter months. The New Year Challenge, was the perfect remedy! It was fun, engaging, and made the dreary winter months so fun! It was the perfect transition from restrictive marathon training, to having fun and staying active. Looking forward to it again this year! -Heather
NEW IN 2023
  • New Sponsor: Our famous daily raffle has a new supporter, Super Jock n' Jill. Seattle's oldest running store, with locations in Seattle and Redmond, WA. 
  • ​New Shirt/Hoodie Logo Designs: In Year 3, we are making a tweak to the shirt design, plus adding a special edition hoodie design.
  • New Interface: We encourage all participants to use the updated raceday.racemenu.com mobile-friendly portal to log their activities. 
  • New Team Captain Incentive: Any team captain with ten or more team members earn entry into a raffle for a two-night stay at the Olympic View House Airbnb in Port Angeles, WA

How it works. You track minutes for running and walking using the RaceDay interface by RaceMenu. All participants this year will use the new mobile-friendly site raceday.racemenu.comClick here for detailed instructions.

You'll have four days to log each daily activity. For example, you have until 11:59 pm on January 5 to log your January 1st activity or until 11:59 pm on January 20 to record your January 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 anytime (you won’t be asked to commit to a level upon registration). But if you miss a day, 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
You must run or walk the minimum distance every day to complete your challenge, not just average that mileage. For example, if you run 5+ miles daily for 30 days and 1 mile on the 31st day, you will finish at the Bronze level. ​

Our why...

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.  If you did not purchase those items at registration or want to purchase additional items, navigate to the registration page and select "I forgot to order a  Medal, Shirts, Shipping, Donations & Fundraisers." 

100% of the profits of those sales go directly to support  KidVantage's critical work.
