      2020 New Year Challenge-The Year of the Rat -Des Moines

      2020 New Year Challenge - The Year of the Rat *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE! Did you know that 2020 is The Year of the Rat?  The Chinese New Year in 2020 starts on January 25th and ends on February 8th!  So we are hosting our second New Year’s Challenge for 2020!  You can commit to compete 2.020 miles, 20.20 miles, or 202.0 miles between January 1 and February 8th, 2020!  You can complete your miles all at once, or spread them out, it’s totally up to you!  How many miles will you get? We will also be donating a portion of the proceeds (at least 15% of every registration) to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. *For a limited time you can purchase an official t-shirt and/or hoodie HERE! When: Complete your race any time between January 1 and February 8th, 2020! Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). You decide whether to do 2.020 miles, 20.20 miles or 202.0 miles! Why:  To raise awareness for Parkinson’s Research and celebrate the year of the RAT! COST:  $22, which includes your medal, bib and shipping.  Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.  *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked)  from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
