Did you know that in 2018 we will be having thirteen full moons (there will be two in January)! Here at Moon Joggers, we LOVE the moon! We are have created an incredibly awesome Full Moon Challenge medal, with a spinning full moon in the middle the glows in the dark! Plus, this medal is BIG! It’s quite a bit larger than our regular medals. So it’s time to gear up and get ready for our Full Moon 13 Mile Running and Walking Challenge! You can compete all thirteen miles at once (one mile for each full moon), or you can split up the distance if you need to, as long as you complete your miles between January 1st and December 31, 2018! Medals will not start shipping out until the end of May.
If you want to run (or walk) at least one mile for each full moon on each date of the full moon, here are the dates for 2018’s full moons:

*Medals and bibs will ship at the end of May. After that they will ship every 2 to 5 days.
Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).
Why: Because this is our way of celebrating something we love so much….the MOON!
Cost: The price is $25 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. This medal is quite larger than our regular medals and has a lot more detail work, so it costs more than our regular races. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Soles 4 Souls. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.
