Get Fit. On Your Time.

What's A Virtual Fitness Challenge?

A virtual fitness challenge can be completed anywhere, at anytime, by anyone. Runners, walkers, cyclists and many others use virtual fitness challenges as a way to stay motivated and accountable for their fitness goals. The best part is you can complete a virtual fitness challenge from your own hometown or anywhere in the world!

Our virtual fitness challenges are more than just running and walking challenges. Run The Year® and Amerithon, include access to private motivational communities, tools to track your mileage, and health and fitness material to help you on your journey.

We ensure that each of our challenges are unique, fun, inspirational, and customizable. The focus is on you. We want to help you achieve your goals.

What’s The Difference Between Virtual Fitness Challenges And Virtual Races?

Virtual races are often one day, one distance events where you compete against others and the clock. For example, you might sign up for a 5K virtual race, upload your results and look at a leaderboard.

For about the same price, our Virtual Fitness Challenges keep you moving over a longer period of time and focus on completing the challenge (like climbing a mountain) rather than beating others. Imagine covering 2,019 miles in the year 2019 or using your miles to virtually travel across the United States. Imagine the new you when you reach the finish line!

Our Virtual Challenges:
Amerithon, Run The Year®, and Hug A Runner

Run The Year®

Run/Walk 2,019 Miles in 2019

  • If there were such a word as “bestest,” this would be THE BESTEST fitness challenge ever invented!
  • Try it solo AND/OR with a team of up to 4. Split miles any way you want between team members.

  • Follow your friends’ progress in the online tracker!

  • Increase your level of awesome by a factor of 10. Because this challenge can actually do that.

FITportunity #2

Amerithon Challenge

Exercise Across America

  • Stay motivated all year long to Run, Walk, Bike, Swim, etc. because it’s a game… and games are fun!
  • The custom tracker and amazing swag are only the beginning. (You should really click the “Learn More” button below.) 🙂
  • Be the one who inspires your friends and even strangers! You can divide the miles with a team of up to 8 people and STILL take the challenge solo… if you dare.
  • Puppy fur is proof there is a God. (This has nothing to do with the challenge but we wanted you to know how we feel about puppy fur.)

I love the support that this community has built. I can ask questions about nutrition (and such) and not feel like I'm being's seriously because of you guys!! If I have any questions about the challenge, I get a response super quick. Thank you so much and keep up the awesome work!
