How will it work?

We have four different races you can register for, a 5K, 10K, 10 mile cycling, or a 2 mile fun run/walk. You will gain access to our online race-times platform where you can log your times. You can run the races as often as you would like over the course of the two-week event, just be sure to log your time ever single time you run!

During the two weeks you will receive emails from us about where you made it to in the world as you have been running/walking/biking. Those emails will include music, dance, art, language, and recipes to help you experience the cultures found all around us!

After the two weeks we will announce the winners. Categories to include:

  • Fastest Times (on all races)

  • Farthest distance walked, ran, biked.
  • Biggest social media presence
  • Various “door” prizes each week of the event
