🌟 GREAT OUTDOORS CHALLENGE IS NOW COMPLETE! Signup for the list to hear about FitFam's next event! 🌟
Dare to adventure! The inaugural Great Outdoors Challenge is a virtual run / hike / bike celebrating, well, the Great Outdoors!
Ever peered out the window or at a photo and said, "someday, I would LOVE to run that!" The Great Outdoors Virtual Challenge gets you up over that hill (pun intended!) to break outside, embrace adventure, and discover a new trail, local getaway, or just dedicated time to fully appreciate your natural surroundings. It's a centennial year too! U.S. National Park Service turns 100 years old in August.
For this challenge, we're adding our first-ever scavenger hunt -- embracing the outdoors, with awards and prizes too! NEW
Lastly, it supports a good cause. A portion of proceeds from the Great Outdoors Challenge will go to Yellowstone Park Foundation.

(NOTE: First FitFam event? For ladies, in our search for highest-quality shirts possible, our specific style runs small so we recommend ordering two sizes up. For men and youth, shirts fit "true-to-size" and we recommend ordering your typical size.)

Step one: Sign up for Great Outdoors Challenge! You can sign up as an individual or as part of a team. Activity and distance options for this event include:
Participating as a team is highly encouraged for max fun factor -- you get to come up with a clever team name, invite others, share your experiences, and (hopefully) run, hike, or bike together!
Step two: We ship out your swag! This will include a custom zinc-alloy finisher’s medal, Tyvek® bib, and other fun swag.
Step three: Register to submit your results, qualifying you for awards and prizes!
Step four: Get out and run, hike, or bike the outdoors! (A treadmill, stationary bike, or elsewhere indoors works too.) Map out your route. Grab some friends, your dog, your kid, or fly solo -- it’s up to you! When you’re done, submit your results to our official leaderboard.
Step five: Win awards and prizes, and meet fellow participants from around the world in our super supportive Great Outdoors Challenge community!
We love the great outdoors. For the Great Outdoors Challenge we will be contributing $1 for every registration plus any additional donations to the Yellowstone Park Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit orgazation supporting nature protection, preservation, and enhancement through Yellowstone National Park.

Is this a virtual run / hike / bike? You are CORRECT!
What is a virtual run / hike / bike? A virtual run / hike / bike is one that you do on your own time and on the road, track, or trail of your choice. We give you a flexible timeframe to complete your miles and invite you to the super-supportive Great Outdoors Challenge community. Once you're done, you can report your results to our official leaderboard, shoot for awards and prizes, and feel fantastic knowing you just benefitted a nature conservation in a fun way.
Why should I participate in this virtual run / hike / bike? Because what's better than getting fit, getting swag, and having a good ol' time in the Great Outdoors Challenge!? And these reasons:
Who can participate? Everybody! There is no age limit, no restrictions. So run, jog, walk, or crawl (not recommended, unless you’re a quadruped or really really odd). Go alone, in a group, with your pet -- it's completely up to you. Just get out, be your best, and enjoy yourself!
My kid wants to participate, but I'm sitting this one out. Can I sign them up? Kids can be registered to participate on their own.
I have a group that wants to participate. Can we register as a team? Absolutely! Just select “Create a team” or “Join a team” on the registration website.
Can I complete the run / hike / bike with a group? Yes! We even have an award for most team members, so spread the word and gather your posse!
Do I have to complete the distance all at once or can I break it up over multiple days? Split it up if you'd like!
When will I receive my swag in the mail? Depending on when you register, your swag items be mailed out a couple weeks before the event starts or shortly after. You'll even receive an email notification when it's been shipped.
Do the medals come with a ribbon? Yes, indeed! Every medal comes with a matching ribbon so you can wear or hang your bling!
I don’t live in the US or Canada, can I still participate? Sure can! While not eligible for prizes, participants outside of the US and Canada can join the fun and win awards with our digital package.
I have an APO/FPO address, can I signup for a swag registration? Affirmative! We're stoked to send swag packages to our military service members and their families overseas. (Note: Transit times are in the hands of USPS mail delivery and may vary by location.)
How can I sponsor this event? Thanks for asking! Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we cannot offer refunds, transfers, or deferrals. We also cannot exchange t-shirt sizes. Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up! All sales are 100% final.
