Digital Running Reveals 2014 Challenges

This year, Digital Running announced their first running challenge – the Interstate Challenge. The idea was pretty easy: run 2 races of either Half Marathon or Marathon distance in 2 different states that were USATF certified (so your results could be confirmed online), and earn some *bling Bling*.

Yep, that’s it. So you could run the Disney Half in Florida and the Go St Louis full in Missouri. Or whatever…

This challenge is NOT full and still accepting entries… but in the meantime, Digital Running has revealed two 2014 challenges that are coming up!

You can check out the official rules for the Hat Trick Challenge and Grand Slam Challenge, but this is the jist of them:

For the Hat Trick challenge, run 3 of the following races: 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon or Marathon.

For the Grand Slam challenge, run all 4 of the following races: 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon AND Marathon.

These can be in the same state, in the same weekend… Registration for both challenges will open up this summer and the medals have not been revealed yet.

Now, here’s the kicker!! Let’s just say you are running the Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World this year. If you register for the Grand Slam, you’ll get all SIX Disney medals plus the TWO Digital Running medals, for a total of 8 medals in one weekend – and 48.6 magical miles!

If you stay Sunday night for the Digital Running post-marathon party, they should be able to verify your times on the spot (Disney is usually pretty good about posting them right away), and you will actually get “crowned” at the party.

The Dopey will fill up quickly. For example, Runner’s World Magazine offers a special Dopey training plan and other goodies which became available April 2 (7 days ago at time of writing) and it is already 90% full!

Walt Disney World Marathon weekend races go on sale in 28 minutes! Good luck and Happy Running!
