Frequently Asked Questions

I didn’t start the challenge on January 1st 2021, can I still participate?

Of course, you can join the challenge at any time!  It’s all about making and reaching your fitness goals for 2021.  We can work with you to input any documented miles from when you register back until January 1st.  Don’t have any backdated miles?  No problem, you can start as soon as you register.  Remember it’s about making this your best year ever!

When do I receive my swag?

Participants that have registered for the Deluxe Participant Package will receive their My Best Year Challenge medal hanger and shirt either in January or within 1 week of registering depending on the date.  Once you have begun the challenge each month you will be required to submit your complete miles for the month by the 5th of each month.  Once miles are confirmed you will receive your engraved mileage challenge coin on or around the 15th of the following month that you completed.

Is there a designated event hashtag for the My Best Year Challenge 2021?

There most definitely is! Use the #MyBestYearChallenge2021 hashtag on your social media posts. Feel free to also tag us @virtualrunchallenge .

Is there an official Facebook Page or Group for the event?

When will I receive access to create my online tracking profile?

Participants in the My Best Year Challenge will receive an email to create their profile the week of December 26th, 2020.  You will then be able to track your progress starting January 1st, 2021.

The best way to keep track of your activities is to find a calendar and write down what the activity mileage is each day. Fitness apps like Apple Health and wearables like Fitbit, Garmin, and Suunto watches are also a great way to track your daily mileage.  Don’t forget to share with us through social media what you are doing to stay active!
