The brisk holiday season has arrived and SHOES-n-FEET is gearing up for the 2020 Northwest Winter Challenge. The annual event welcomes people of all ages and challenges participants to walk or run at least one mile every day during the months of December, January and February.
“We strongly encourage anybody and everybody to go sign up and register,” said Adam Stuhfaut, director of running at SHOES-n-FEET. “This challenge is our way of providing a fun and motivating platform for customers and the Bellevue community to be active and stay healthy.”
Participants in the 2019 Northwest Winter Challenge receive their medals and shirts.
The Northwest Winter Challenge is broken up into three virtual challenges: the Holiday Challenge, the January Challenge, and the Overtime Challenge. The challenges as participants to run or walk at least one mile per day for the duration of the event. Participants track their runs and walks through an app called Raceday. Raceday uses a socially interactive user interface that allows participants to take advantage of leaderboards and other cool in-app features during the duration of the challenge(s) they wish to participate in.
Additionally, the Northwest Winter Challenge will feature daily raffle prizes, a Facebook and Instagram event page for participants to share their Winter Warrior journey with the community, and much more.
The event is being co-promoted with Northwest Trail Runs and alongside local nonprofit called Eastside Baby Corner, a charity organization that works hard in providing care and support for kids 12 and under across King, South Snohomish, Kitsap, and west Pierce counties. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go towards Eastside Baby Corner’s efforts in giving back to the community.
