The Winter Warrior Challenge is back to kick off 2018! We challenge you to run or walk OUTSIDE every day in the month of January.
Track your mileage everyday using our online platform and see how you stack up against the rest of the state. Living out in western Mass and trying to compete with your family on the South Shore? No problem - all the mileage is inputted remotely by you and can be completed ANYWHERE outdoors!
At the end of the month, we tally up the results for those still in The Challenge (logged at least one mile every day of the month) and award a title of Gold, Silver, or Bronze based on your daily mileage. See below for grouping requirements:
Bronze = run/walk 1 mile each day*
Silver = run/walk 3 miles each day*
Gold = run/walk 5 miles each day*
Convenient leaderboards are updated daily for Gold, Silver, and Bronze categories so you can see how you stack up!
*These mileage targets are NOT averages. You must complete at least 1, 3, or 5 miles each and every day of the competition to be placed in the various categories.
Get your friends involved and see if you can take the Winter Warrior Team Title! Join or create a team during your registration.
New this year: Teams can have a maximum of 10 people!
We have two ways that you can log your daily miles:
-Enter your mileage manually
-Connect your Winter Warrior account to Strava and have your runs automatically transferred
*VERY IMPORTANT ON LOGGING MILEAGE: You only have 4 DAYS to log a run in the system. For example, you will only be able to log your January 1st run through the end of the day on January 4th. This prevents someone from logging all their miles on the last day of the competition. If the 4th day passes and you have still not logged a run, you are out of the competition. There are no exceptions to this rule! The competition requires both running of the miles and accurately reporting the miles within the timeframe.
Want to wear your Winter Warrior badge proud? Grab some of the gear:
A commemorative Winter Warrior Challenge long sleeve tech running shirt that will have the tiered level (Gold, Silver or Bronze) you earn listed in Big Bold letters that you can wear proudly. You can only preorder these shirts during registration until January 1st for $15 each. Get yours now, as they are only available until registration ends on January 1st. No shirts will be sold after registration ends.*
*Please note: This year will only have the tiered level on the back of the shirt, not names. In an effort to make sure you're not using a microscope to see your name, we've put a focus on the Level reached.

Winter Warrior commemorative winter hats are new this year and are going to disappear FAST. You know, the extremely comfy knit hats with a little pompom on top? Those ones.
There are only a limited amount of these available, so get one while supplies last.
All hats are One Size Fits Most ;)
New this year to go along with the season, we're offering a long sleeved, full zip, 100% polyester microfleece embroidered with your favorite Winter Warrior Yeti.

Because who doesn't love to celebrate a great accomplishment like a month straight of exercise?
Gear will arrive in stores for pick up around mid-February, as the commemorative shirts cannot be printed until after the competition is over. If you order an item, you will be notified via email upon arrival to the store. Your gear will be sent to the store you selected as your 'home store' during the registration process.
