FINISHER MEDALS & SHIRTS
Once individuals or teams complete the challenge, finisher medals and shirts can be picked up at the Millennium Running Retail Store or will be mailed out to ALL participants who opted for shipping during registration.
DO I HAVE TO RUN THE BORDER OR CAN I RUN ANYWHERE?
This is a virtual challenge – you do not have to physically run around the entire state. Use your neighborhood runs or miles on the treadmill to watch your tracking icon move around the state.
DO I HAVE TO RUN EVERYDAY?
You do not have to everyday. As an individual it works out to just over 5 miles per day – as a team you can break it up however you want.
WHAT IF I’M STAYING ACTIVE ON AN ELLIPTICAL OR BIKING, ETC?
That’s cool – we get it and we still want you to participate. Here is a cool spreadsheet you can use to convert to miles or you can use this cool converter.
