Looking to keep in shape between races? Our Summer Soldiers Challenge is for you! Meet new training buddies, change up the scenery and get your miles in. Runners don't let other runners run alone, especially on the long, hot days of August.
After last year's successful debut, Fleet Feet Hoboken will host it’s second Summer Soldiers Challenge!
Program Dates: August 3 - 31, 2016
Program Cost: $0, nada, zilch
Program Goal: To keep you active outside during the dog days of August
The rules of the game are simple. All you have to do is attend and participate in as many Wednesday Night Fun Runs as possible between August 3, 2016 and August 31, 2016. Runs leave from Fleet Feet Hoboken at 7pm every Wednesday evening and consist of scenic 3.3 mile or 6.7 mile routes (you choose whether to run one or two loops), along Washington Street and the Hudson River.
ALL pace groups are welcome. Walkers AND runners, exercise beginners and exercise fiends. We don't care, we just want you to stay active this summer. And again, there is no cost to join this program!
What's in it for you? You'll earn prizes along the way based on points you've earned to date - "great job" prizes and "totally awesome job" prizes. Prizes will be awarded to those who attend the most fun runs according to the following criteria:
