2018's Training Rewards!

About Our Director's Challenge

Train with us and earn RTB Rewards!

Download our mobile app (for iPhones and Androids) and log all of your training runs from November 18 - March 18. The more miles you run, the more rewards you earn! And then if you set a new, overall Half-Marathon PR on Race Day, March 31st, we'll also paint your name on our Director's Challenge Wall of Fame at Ethereal Brewing in Lexington's historic Distillery District!

New this year: Bonus miles for stretching after each run! It literally saves and improves your running life, truly adding miles to your career, so we're giving you one bonus mile each time you properly stretch after a run!
