Virtual Sock Out 50 Challenge (1)
Time & Location
About the Event
The challenge is to run a minimum of 50 miles during the holiday season (from November 20 through December 31). Everyone who successfully completes this challenge will automatically be entered to win a $100 Visa Gift Card!
There is a $5 entry fee to join, and all registrants will be required to create a free account with MapMyRun in order for us to track and verify mileage. MapMyRun offers a free phone app, or mileage can be entered manually into an account via www.mapmyrun.com.
Did you know that socks are the number one requested clothing item in homeless shelters? As runners, we know the importance of a good pair of socks, so we have paired up with Bombas to support their mission to contribute to the homeless community and encourage others to get involved. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be used to purchase socks from Bombas which are specifically designed to be donated to homeless shelters across the United States. For every pair of socks we donate, Bombas will donate another pair. More information about their company and products can be found on their website: www.bombas.com
This challenge is a great way to keep us motivated during the holiday season while also helping others in need. Runners are going to run anyway; why not use our miles to give back. 'Tis the season!
