Amerithon Challenge FAQ


The Amerithon Challenge is a virtual fitness challenge to travel 3,521 miles across the US. Well, not actually travel it, but you will track your miles in our online mileage tracker and cross the US virtually. You can take on the challenge with a team of up to 8 people and there is no time limit for completing the challenge.

You can create a team of up to 8 people very easily in our online tracker. Once each individual is registered, you can find teammates and connect with them using their email address. The tracker will keep track of your individual miles as well as your team’s miles. You can only be on one team at a time in the tracker. It’s very easy to switch to a new team, but once you leave a team, all of your miles will leave with you. And no, the 3,521 miles don’t have to be split evenly between teammates, you can divide them up however you want!

Any activity is allowed in the Amerithon Challenge, but this is a personal challenge, so you’ll need to ask yourself what your rules will be. For some, the challenge comes from only counting intentional exercise. Others count their daily steps toward their total miles. Some are only counting biking, some are only counting running. Everyone’s challenge will be different and we ask that you respect other participant’s decisions about their challenge.

Our tracker syncs with Garmin and Fitbit but you can easily add your miles manually as well! If you wish to sync please to go the “Info” tab then choose “Profile” and you will see the sync options.

First, please double check your confirmation email to verify what you ordered. The Deluxe and Get It All Packages include gear, however the Basic Package does not include any physical gear that is mailed. Second, search your email inbox for an email from Stamps.com as your tracking information would have been emailed from them. If that does not provide the help you need, please email us at info@runtheedge.com.

Please know that we ship out registration packages approximately once per week. If it’s been less than a week since you registered, we greatly appreciate your patience!
