By joining the Spooky Ooky Challenge, you'll earn the perfect medal to celebrate your Halloween outing:
Design features Gourdy dressed as a ghost and the challenge year
Soft neck ribbon with lanyard-style clasp for easy clipping
Magnet on the back of the medal so you can display on your fridge post-run
*Results can only be uploaded if you are signed up for Gourdy's Pumpkin Run: Virtual Run.You can do this as a standalone challenge but won't be able to upload results unless you are signed up for the Virtual Run.
Run more, earn more, and extend the event all fall! Gourdy introduced this challenge last year and it became a fan favorite right away. Here's how it works:
Each month, you'll run 3.1 miles anywhere you choose.
After completing that month's run, you'll log in and submit your time to the leaderboard.
Pop open your medal, snap a photo, and relish as you squash your goals all season long.
Here's the line-up:
- September to Remember: Celebrate the kick-off of fall by doing a 5K in September!
-Rocktober!: Leaves are changing colors and fall is in full swing! Rock 3.1 miles in October as you take it all in!
-Novem-brrr Dash: The temps may drop but the momentum shouldn't. Head out in the crisp autumn air one last time!
How you decide to earn your medals is 100% up to you. If you make running a habit, award your best training run each month with a medal. Or, maybe just holding yourself accountable and running 3.1 miles each month will earn you the right to open your medal. Stay active, stay committed, and earn extra bling!
Choose which months you want to add or set the bar high by adding all three (while saving $10) Each challenge has its own unique medal, which will ship to you at the beginning of the season. More bling, more running, and more fall!
This item ships at the beginning of fall. Free shipping for orders $25+ within contiguous USA!
October is pumpkin month! Grab a pumpkin to tag along with you on your 5K and you'll earn the exclusive Tough Pumpkin medal. Here's how it works:
