Did you know that 2022 is The Year of the Tiger? The Lunar New Year in 2022 is on February 1st. We are hosting our fourth New Year’s Challenge for 2022! You can commit to compete 2.022 miles, 20.22 miles, or 202.2 miles between January 1 and February 28th, 2022! You can complete your miles all at once, or spread them out, it’s totally up to you! How many miles will you get?We will also be donating a portion of the proceeds (at least 15% of every registration) to the Operation Underground Railroad, who has gathered the world’s experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.’s Ops Team consists of former CIA, past and current law enforcement, and highly skilled operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world. Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins. It is time for private citizens and organizations to rise up and help. It is our duty as a free and blessed people. When: Complete your race any time between January 1 and February 28th, 2022! Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). You decide whether to do 2.022 miles, 20.22 miles or 202.2 miles! You can break up the distance and complete it at different times. Why: To raise awareness for Operation Underground Railroad and celebrate the year of the TIGER! COST: $18, which includes your medal, bib and at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Operation Underground Railroad. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Running and walking on your own, or with friends! And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5Ks, 10K, half marathon and more! Each of our races benefits a different charity. We’ve already raised more than $892,045 for charities from running events on this website! We are making a difference…one race at a time.
