Camaraderie Challenge

Together We Traveled 24,901 Miles Around the Globe!

Thank you for your support of the CDC Emergency Response Fund. We are keeping registration open until Wednesday (Earth Day!) if you would still like to donate. You may also continue to submit bonus miles until Wednesday too!

Stronger Together

Running together in groups is a driving force for our community. It fosters new friendships, trail running education, exploration of local routes, and simply the motivation to get outside. The COVID-19 crisis is forcing us apart, preventing coveted interactions. Retaining mental and physical motivation is much harder now, but not impossible!

How to Participate:


Join our collective journey around the globe! Every distance counts, whether a bonafide trail run or walking circles around your kitchen. Track your miles solo or invite your friends and create a team, tagging your miles together. 

Only registered entrants are eligible for random drawings. Prizes include hydration systems from Nathan, trail shoes and gear from Merrell, virtual fits & shoes from Fleet Feet, Trail Sisters Swag, and much much more!

Measure Your Miles

Use a GPS watch, platforms like Strava or Map My Run, or an old-school hip pedometer! Treadmills include your data on their control board, and for those doing stairs repeats or other creative workouts, give us your best guess! Whether going long or short, it all adds up!

Submit Your Miles

Use our submission form to add your miles to the tracker. Additionally, leave an inspirational note for others and together we will stay committed to promoting health and wellness during this difficult time.

24,901 miles is a lot of distance, so feel free to keep submitting to help us complete the global journey.
