Chris Cabeza's thoughts:

With virtual races becoming more popular in 2020, NYCRuns set up an incredible new challenge that has excited a lot of runners. The "NYCRuns Subway System Challenge" challenges runners to run 245 miles (the entire length of the NYC subway system) within 15 weeks (Memorial Day to Labor Day). This is a wonderful long term motivator to get out there and log those miles. The great thing is that a portion of the race's proceeds and all donations goes towards the Robin Hood Relief Fund which is currently helping families and front line workers get through the Covid crisis.

As with all virtual races you can run this anywhere you want and break it up however you'd like. Entering your miles is on the honor system. After you run you'll log in to your NYCRuns account to log in your miles. The site will keep track of your weekly mileage, your completion percentage, and exactly how many miles you have to go. Then every Monday you can download a new "postcard" that gives you a new location that you have ran to in the virtual world starting at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY.

The swag for this challenge is pretty great too. The basic swag level registration will get you a quality medal, a tank top, and a light hoodie all with the challenge logo on them. The highest registration gave you a special gift which was revealed to be a medal holder to hang on your wall.

As stated above, if you are looking for a long-term motivator then this challenge is wonderful! I've had a great experience with it so far, contact has been very smooth and quick, and I've already received my swag which looks amazing. Happy Running!
