Description

Race Works presents to you the South Carolina Coastline Challenge. We want to bring the running community back together, virtually for now. We miss seeing all of your smiling faces in real life and until that can safely happen again, we want to see your photos and watch your miles accumulate. We are bringing to you an end of summer challenge to get out and stay fit while social distancing.  Have you ever thought what it would be like to run the entire coastline of South Carolina? Once you are registered you will get instructions on logging your miles ('START LINE' and logging begin on 8/25/2020!) - each time you log your miles your results page will show you where you would be along the coastline. You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside as long as you log the miles. BONUS POINTS if you are visiting or able to run/walk on the beaches of the Palmetto State! You do not have to run or walk each day, you just have to finish the total distance (you can also go above and beyond!) between August 25th and November 25th. That is 3 months to complete your goal! You can choose to have a reminder each day to log your distances as well as daily updates with your location and cumulative distanced logged.  We will have a live leader board at the RESULTS page for you to see how you place among the other participants daily!  We ask that you join our Facebook group and tag any of your photos on social media with the #SCCoastlineChallenge so we can follow along!  

All Participants will receive a shirt and a medal once they complete the event distance (we will begin shipping at the beginning of November). All made in the USA!  All mileage must be submitted at your unique results page each day or each time you complete a daily mileage (you can enter mileage from previous days or whatever is convenient for you! 

**Disclaimer: Please do not run on unsafe roads, or areas that have been closed off to the public.  Practice social distancing and any other requirements set forth by local, state and federal guidelines.  The interstates and highways are not open for pedestrian traffic, this is a virtual run/walk only, please do not gather as a crowd in any one location at the same time.
