  • How does it work?

    The Winter Warrior Challenge is designed to start the year off on a happy and healthy note by getting us up and off the couch and into fresh air. Each day in the month of January, run or walk at least one mile OUTSIDE, and track your mileage through our Winter Warrior Challenge page on Race Roster. You are responsible for knowing the mileage that you’ve run – if you don’t have a GPS running watch, check out free online resources like the Google Pedometer or MapMyRun.

  • How do I log my runs?

    Click the “Submit Mileage“” button on the homepage of the Winter Warrior registration to be brought to the submission form. Note this will go live on January 1st, 2023.​

  • What if I miss a day?

    The challenge dictates that you run or walk outside every day in January. Unfortunately, if you miss a day, you’re OUT, but we encourage you to continue logging miles regardless.

  • What if I run, but forget to submit my miles?

    You have four days to submit mileage for a given run. You MUST log your mileage in this window – if you forget and miss the four day deadline, you are OUT. Unfortunately there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy. Do whatever you need to do to remember to log your runs! Set an alert on your phone, have a friend remind you, write on your hand…because if you forget to do so, you’re out of the challenge.

  • I ran/walked twice in one day; do I submit one total entry or multiple entries?

    The answer is that you can do either. For example, if you run 6 miles in the morning and 3 miles at night, you can enter one 9 mile entry or two individual entries at 6 and 3 miles. Your category status is based on average daily mileage, so 9 is what would be measured for that particular day in this example.

  • Where do I get my merchandise?

    When registering, you will be prompted or enticed with some of the nicest gear there is! We will be shipping everything to your address.
