Run/walk/cycle and explore you state

Due to COVID-19, you may find yourself sticking closer to home these days, feeling restless, in a funk, or just plain bored. Adding everyday adventures to your life may be the solution right now. And who doesn't love a challenge?!?  With 22 weeks remaining in 2020 it's the perfect time to set goals, create new experiences and explore uncharted territories in your state.  We give you the ideas and you "run" with it! As you check them off the list, be sure to let us know how it goes! Send us a pic or share it on our Explore Your State Challenge facebook page.  We love hearing from you! 

22 Weeks of exploration

Ready, Set, Go explore!!!    

What is this challenge all about? It's similar to a scavenger hunt and a way to discover your beautiful state. The checklist is not specific locations but rather attractions, places of nature, types of businesses, that you run, walk, or cycle to or from in any state, anywhere!


CLICK HERE to view the checklist.


How much traveling will I be required to do? It's completely up to you! We give you the hints, you take it from there. You plan out your adventure as you wish. It's not about mileage or time. It's all about exploring your state and having fun!


Why 22 weeks? 2020 has not been the best of years so we wanted close it out on a positive note. This is a great way to get outdoors, discover new places, the history and beauty that surrounds us.


Why only complete 1 on the checklist per week? We want to help keep you accountable and allow you time to plan your exploration. Depending on when you register, you will complete 1 - 2 from the checklist with an end goal of completing all 22 by the end of 2020.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to one of our close friends, Barbara Hamel, who is currently battling Lymphoma.  This challenge is dedicated to her and we will stand by her side each step she takes. We hope you will too.

Barbara has been part of our Total Image Running family since the very beginning. From her feisty attitude to her spirit driven soul this woman is amazing!  Barbara beat Lymphoma once and now she is facing the fight a second time.  It has spread to her spine so she can no longer walk.  They are treating her with two types of chemotherapy which has very challenging side effects and force her to be in the hospital 10 days at a time.  Proceeds from this event will be donated to her and her family to help them with the financial burden that comes with a cancer diagnosis.
