This challenge is designed for anyone and everyone! With the challenge of covering as few as 17 miles a week and with an available relay option for all teams, anyone in your family can participate. You can also encourage family members to join you to help you achieve your goal. You can run/bike/walk/swim from anywhere to participate.
Your inherent reward is that you are improving yourself while supporting those in need of food. All challenges will also receive a limited edition Austin to Aspen Challenge T-Shirt - unisex OR female-specific. In addition, all will receive a gorgeous Custom Medal to proudly display your accomplishment. And each challenger will receive a virtual challenge bib that can be downloaded from the race page, participation in an active leaderboard, live map tracking along our course and a digital finisher's certificate with all your stats! We will also be promoting random prizes throughout the challenge to help make it more fun - and keep you more connected with other participants!
We will process your race packets once every quarter. January-March will be sent in April. April-June will be sent in July. July-September will be sent in October and October-December will be sent in January.
You can complete it any way you wish. You can walk, roll, run, spin - whatever makes you happy! And you can cover your miles any day, and in any way, that best works for you.
