Looking to keep in shape between races or during the hot summer months? 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 summer.
After its successful debut two years ago, Fleet Feet Hoboken will host it’s third annual Summer Soldiers Challenge!
Program Dates: Wednesday, July 19 - Wednesday, September 6, 2017
Program Cost: $0, nada, zilch
Program Goal: To keep you active outside during the dog days of summer
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 July 19, 2017 and September 6, 2017 (Note: For the week of July 31st, the fun run will be on Tuesday, August 1st for Hoboken National Night Out leaving from Church Square Park at 7PM instead of Wednesday, August 2nd.). All other runs will leave from Fleet Feet Hoboken at 7PM every Wednesday evening and consist of scenic 3.5 mile or 7.0 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.

4 Points (once you have attended 4 runs) => "Great job" prize of either a Fleet Feet Sports Hoboken technical shirt or Brooks duffle bag
