Columbia River Virtual Challenge – Until Nov 23
September 25, 2020 - November 23, 2020
The mighty Columbia River meanders its way through multiple states and two countries. This iconic symbol of America is right here in our area.
Event website: https://runsignup.com/Race/WA/Pasco/ColumbiaRiverVirtualChallenge
To celebrate this majestic body of life, we put together a 320-mile virtual challenge for people to participate in. This 320-Mile challenge will test you as a single participant or can be as easy as a Sunday stroll for a team. Teams can consist of either 2, 3, or 4 people. You will have 60 days to complete this meandering path that follows the Columbia River from the Tri-Cities to the Cape of Disappointment. Participants can choose between two main categories, Run/Walk or Multi-Sport. The Run or Walk category is just that, seeing how far and how often you can push yourself to reach the ultimate goal of 320 miles. The Multi-Sport category allows you to get there any way you want; you can choose to run, walk, swim, paddle, or bicycle your way to the finish. Keep in mind that you must complete the 320 miles within 60 days. You can choose to reach your goal in a few long treks per week, or you can get there by completing it with 5.3 miles per day. How you complete this event is up to you!
On the website, we have placed a virtual map so that you can track your progress toward the 320-mile goal. To track your miles, you must log into your account and post your completed miles. Are you feeling ambitious? Continue logging miles beyond the goal and see how far you can go before the November 23 deadline!
All registrants will receive a short-sleeved cotton/poly t-shirt for entering the event. As a bonus, each participant will receive a custom sticker highlighting their completion of the 320-mile challenge. All ages welcomed.
