REGISTRATION: Click here to register online. Registration is open until 11:59 PM January 5, 2018.
If you have registered please review these final instructions, plus all the info below.
Choose your challenge
You can challenge yourself to any level, and can change your mind at any time (you won’t be asked to commit to a level upon registration). But if you miss a day, you’re out!
Bronze: 1 mile run/walk per day
Silver: 3 miles run/walk per day
Gold: 5 miles run/walk per day
Winter Warrior: run/walk at least 1 mile per day outside
To complete your challenge, you must run or walk the minimum distance every day, not just averaging that mileage. For example, if you run 5+ miles every day for 30 days and 1 mile on the 31st day, you will finish at the Bronze level.
Log your runs in the new and improved Raceday app
We’ll keep track of your daily mileage. Each day, sign in via the Raceday website
(racemenu.com/raceday), or on the RaceMenu Raceday iOS mobile app (which you can download from the App Store). Please note that the app will not be live until January 1, 2018.
You'll have four days to log each daily run. For example, you have until 11:59pm on January 5th to log your January 1st run, or until 11:59pm January 20th to log your January 16th run. If you miss the 4-day deadline, you're out of the challenge--no exceptions.
Read this page for instructions on how to log your runs.

Join the team challenge for extra bragging rights
The Northwest Winter Challenge is much more fun when you create a team and get your friends and family involved. There's strength in numbers, because the total mileage for all team members determines your team's ranking on the leaderboard.
Weekly Prize Raffles
Check the SHOES-n-FEET website for the winners of weekly prize drawings! We have a great pile of prizes to award all month long.

Order your shirt, and get your name on it
We will have commemorative long sleeve shirts with the name of each Winter Warrior (anyone who gets outdoors for at least 1 mile each day) on the back. You'll purchase the shirt for $15 as part of the registration process.
If you did not initially order a t-shirt during registration you still can order one. The deadline is Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 11:59 PM. Originally the deadline was January 5, but we worked with our t-shirt vendor and got more time. To order a shirt, go to the registration page: https://www.racemenu.com/…/153482-2018-Northwest-Winter-Cha… and select: "Shirts, Shipping & Donations Only" and it will take your shirt order.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Eastside Baby Corner
EBC helps kids thrive by providing basic necessities for children so that EBC’s partners — schools, human service agencies, food banks, hospitals--can help families become stable, safe, housed, fed and employed. Relying almost exclusively on volunteers, EBC takes in donations of children’s clothing and goods from the community and supplements donations with purchases of the absolute essentials for children we guarantee to provide: baby food, formula, car seats, pack n’ plays and diapers. As the vital safety net under family-assistance providers and families, EBC annually distributes over 70,000 health and care items for kids from birth to age 12 directly to agencies in King, south Snohomish, Kitsap and west Pierce counties. Volunteers contribute an average of 2,700 hours each month at the EBC Central hub, EBC – West Sound hub and EBC – Northshore hub. Founded by pediatric nurse practitioner, Karen Ridlon in 1990, EBC helps more than 800 children each week. Connect with us: find us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/eastsidebabycorner. We are also on Twitter and Instagram, handle @babycorner.
