DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A WARRIOR?
We are excited to announce the 4th edition of the Winter Warrior Challenge. For Winter Warrior, we challenge you to run/walk OUTSIDE every day for 31 days in January. Over the past three years we have had hundreds of walkers and runners take on the Winter Warrior Challenge and this year we're upping the ante! REGISTER
More Levels to Challenge Yourself! You can attempt any level. Challenge yourself! If you start on a higher level, you can always drop down to a lower level. But, if you miss a day, you’re out!
For each of these levels, you must run the designated mileage EVERY DAY, not just averaging that mileage. This means that if you run 5 or more miles for 30 days in January, and 1 mile for 1 day in January, you will end up hitting the Bronze Level due to that 1 day of lower mileage. This means no saying "I'll make it up another day" when we get our annual January Blizzard ::knock on wood::
Each of these levels is determined by what you actually ran. No matter which level you signed up for, or if you didn't sign up for a level, the level you achieve is based on your results. If you signed up for Silver, and end up running at least 5 miles per day, you'll achieve Gold Level Status. If you drop down from Silver and end up running at least 1 mile per day, you'll still achieve Bronze Level Status. Remember - You need to run this mileage EVERY SINGLE DAY. This is not an average over the month.
Easy Registration! Just create an account at racemenu.com, sign up for the Winter Warrior Challenge and log your runs through the RaceMenu Winter Warrior mobile website. It's just $7/person for the whole 31 days of tracking!
Log Your Daily Runs!
You will have two ways to log your runs, either via a mobile website (Raceday web version) which can be accessed from any web browser, or via RaceMenu's Raceday mobile app.
AT THIS TIME YOU CAN ACCESS THE MOBILE WEBSITE, BUT PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DOWNLOAD RACEDAY FROM APPLE ITUNES OR GOOGLE PLAY. THE 2015 MARATHON SPORTS WINTER WARRIOR VERSIONS OF THE RACEDAY APP ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD. INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING WILL BE SENT AT A LATER DATE AND POSTED ON THE WEB VERSION OF RACEDAY.
Until the App is available for download, you may follow the below steps on either your smartphone or desktop browser to log your miles:
Once logged into Raceday:
You can log a run until 10AM the following day. For example, you have until 10AM on January 2nd to log your January 1st run. If you miss the 10AM deadline, you're out of the challenge!
Once 10AM the following day hits, if you don't have a run logged, you're out. Please pay very close attention to this as we will not be making exceptions to get people back in to the competition.
If you have trouble with Raceday, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Group Runs! We will have weekly opportunities all over the place to gather with other Warriors for your Warrior Training Runs. Gathering with other Warriors is optional. Feel free to toil alone, but wouldn't it be better to run with the support of others? Below are some optional gatherings:

Team Challenge! We are encouraging you to get your friends involved. We will be giving prizes to:
Store Challenge! New this year, mention which store is YOUR Marathon Sports store in the registration process, and compete against all 11 Marathon Sports stores. The store that ends up with the most miles at the end of the month will be crowned the victor! All runners on the team will be invited to an end of month party in their store with drinks, food and good fun.
More Prizes! Brooks Running will again be sponsoring and we'll have prize drawings and other giveaways.
T-Shirts! We will once again have commemorative long sleeve tech running shirts with the name of each person who completes the challenge on the back. You can pre-order your t-shirt at registration for $15. Make sure to preorder your shirt if you want one because they will not be available at the end for purchase.
Shirts will be available for pick up from the store you associate yourself with during the registration process at some point in February after the competition. The date will be sent out in the first week in February.
