This year is Leap Year!  So we’re celebrating by running 2.29 miles to celebrate 2.29.2016!

Did you know that February 29, Leap Day, is also Rare Disease Day?  To help bring awareness we are devoting our Leap Year Race to the National Organization for Rare Diseases.

According to their website, “Every day in America, 30 million people wake up to fight the battle with a rare disease. The vast majority are children. For most, there are no cures and few, if any, proven and effective treatments.  NORD provides a unified voice for those courageous individuals, and the parents and other caregivers seeking to help them, so that they won’t have to fight that battle alone.”

For participating in this event you will get a fun, 3 inch Leap Year finishers medal!

What:  This is a virtual race. You choose to complete 2.29 miles in honor of Leap Day, which falls on 2.29.2016.  You complete your race on your own and submit your time to us.  Then we ship your medal directly to you.

When: Complete your race on LEAP DAY, or any time during the month of February or March.

*Medals will be shipped by the beginning of April (we are ordering a new batch of medals, as we sold out of our original batch).  

Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why:  To raise awareness for rare diseases!

COST:  $20, which includes your medal, official bib and shipping.  Plus, at least 20% of every entry will be donated to the National Organization for Rare Diseases (typically about $5).  *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.
