Wenatchee Valley Humane Society will receive 10% of the proceeds from these events. WVHS rescues, protects, cares for and adopts out animals in the Wenatchee/Chelan area of Washington State. https://www.wenatcheehumane.org/
Getting together with friends on a big challenge is fun! Get together up to 8 of your friends and join us for a much quicker 2572 miles! You can choose the biking or running relay. If you'd like to do fewer than 8, shoot us an email and we can give you a discount on your team price! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Team Captains will signup initially with the names and emails of their teams. Then, an email will be auto-sent from ultrasignup with ah link for each runner (or cyclist) to register. Each member will signup but will get a full discount since the captain pays the fees. Each member can purchase their own add-ons (like a buckle or extra shirts). Every signup (so every team member) gets a shirt with their entry! Logging miles starts June 1. Each team member will upload their miles each day (or as often as they run) and the live map and leaderboard will show where you are at individually, as a team and on the map!
Once the team captain has registered, they can login to their Ultrasignup account and send invites to their team, here's how:
1. Login to Ultrasigup
2. Hover your mouse over the upper right corner where you see your name and "account info"
3. Choose "registration history"
4. Next to "Race Across the USA" choose "manage team"
5. From this page you will see the names of your team and 'send invite' option. Send an invite to each member. You can use this page to manage your team, change your team name and edit members if needed.
2,572 miles from San Francisco to New York!
Have you ever dreamed about crossing the USA on foot or bike? Now is your chance and do it from the safety of your own home, trails, or roads. You can use your daily training to build up to running the entire span of the USA in this long and possibly insanely stupid challenge. Our live leaderboard will keep track of each runner's daily results as you upload them, showing as miles toward completing this 2,572 mile trans-America route that will take you from the foggy coast of San Francisco to the bustling city of New York! This is (obviously) not for everyone and we are pretty sure most of you are not crazy enough to entertain this idea, but we've never been ones to avoid an idea because of its length!
To get an official time we will need you to upload a time by Jan 1, 2021. For those who want to take as long as, well, it takes that's fine too! We have beautiful buckles and awards made by artist Kali in Utah.

Buckles for all distances/relay/solo are add-on options and we will post pictures here as soon as we have a few mockups for you. They will be similar to our Rise Up buckles - by the same artist in Utah.
