About This Activity

Don't wait for the New Years to get moving! Let us Walk/Run you through the holidays!

The challenge starts 12/15/14 and runs through 1/15/15.

Done our Challenges before? We have awesome bottle opener medals for this event! Good for opening a nice Sparkling Water when your done :-) 

2 Challenges in 1. We have a walk/run challenge where you at least get a medal. The more miles you do, the more you receive. During this event, we are using free apps (mapmyrun and runkeeper) to track your miles to make sure you are covering the miles you say you are and to hold you accountable.  If you have nike+, a garmin or fitbit, you can use those too. You can use any tracking device that will allow us to see your monthly totals. Since it is winter, you can use a treadmill. We understand during this time of year, it is hard to get outside and we don't want anyone to risk injury by running in snow or on ice. Maymyrun and Runkeeper have the ability to manually add your treadmill miles on them. But remember this is a walk/run challenge and bikes and ellipticals do not count.

The other Challenge is a weight loss challenge and a bet! You have the option (not required) to put an extra $30 in a pot and if you lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks, you get to share the money with those that hit their weight loss goals. Sounds fun right? Lose weight, get a medal, and possibly a shirt, necklace and money!

Event details and schedule

There are 2 parts of this event. The first one is cover the mileage you sign up for and receive at least a medal. The second part of this event, if you choose to do it, is bet on yourself! If you lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks, you at least get your money back! If others do not hit their goal, you split the pot with everyone that hit their goals.


Just sign up for this weight loss event and start moving! We check in with you 2-3 times during this event to make sure you are on track and try to keep you moving.

This is going to be fun!
