Virtual Vertical Challenge
Please join us for the Virtual Vertical Challenge: Climbing Adventure any day between April 24 and May 11, 2020.
How many feet can you climb in 25K? How about 50K? Can you climb a verical mile?
Let's see who can climb the most. We have two distances to choose from, and each event is $20. Every registered runner will receive a $20 coupon to JackRabbit Glendale (valid through June 30, exclusions may apply), and the winners will receive a cool prize (assuming we have at least three people competing in each event). Proceeds will support Shoes 4 The Shoeless, an Ohio charity that provides food for children and the vulnerable population during the COVID 19 pandemic. We hope to provide several food boxes with proceeds from the race. If you want to be more involved in Shoes 4 The Shoeless work please consider being Food Box Captain: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/food4thepeopleround3
