Run The Year- 2016

Run The Year- 2016

We are partnering with Run The Edge to participate in their Run The Year 2016 Challenge. We received a complementary registration for the challenge but are not receiving any other compensation. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

We’ve talked a little bit about our goals for 2016 (Travis will be sharing his soon) and today we wanted to share with you another challenge that we’ve decided to take on. Run The Year 2016.

  
Adam Goucher and Tim Catalano (motivational speakers and authors of the book  Run The Edge) have created this challenge for the year 2016. The idea is simple: 366 days; 2,016 miles. The miles can be walked or ran and done individually or as a team of up to 3 people (we will be doing our miles as a team). What better way to push yourself going into the new year than committing to run 2,016 miles?! In 2015 over 25,000 people accepted the challenge and 2016 is expected to be bigger!

Here’s how it works:

-Register for the challenge. There are several options available! You can register for just the challenge alone, or go all in and get the shirt and medal!

Included in registration:

*The world’s first online race expo! New for 2016 you will have 366 days of access to the expo where each booth will have a different experience! Booths will include some brand favorites like Nuun, Oiselle, Balega and Soleus!

*Mileage tracker– as a Run The Year participant you will have access to a unique mileage tracker. The miles are on the honor system so you don’t have to have a GPS to participate!

*Access to the Aid Station, Training Room, Nutrition Bar and Listening Lounge– you will have access to health training and nutrition advice from some of the best in the business to help you achieve your goals!

*Training Plans– as a participant you will have access to Run The Edge training plans valued at over $180!

*366 days of prizes and giveaways from the sponsors!

*Access to a private Facebook group where you can get all of the support and motivation from other participants!

You will also receive a bib for every 100 miles you complete in the challenge including a bib for mile one and mile 2,016.

So, who wants to join us and commit to 2,016 miles in 2016?!

    I participated this year as a team of 3. My solemates have totally slacked on me 🙁 so we will not meet our goal but I have done almost 500 by myself. I will probably finish close to 600 my the end of the year.

    I’m sorry to hear about your teammates. Travis ran over 1,200 miles this year training for his marathons, so we think we can do it together with us both training for multiple events next year. 600 miles is nothing to hang your head over. You should be very proud of yourself. We’d like to challenge you to complete 732 miles next year (2 miles/day/366 days). Let us know!!!
