the challenge

You choose to run 25/50/75/100/125/150/175 or 200 miles plus during the month of March. This challenge is based on the Appalachian Trail (USA), which is the longest hiking or running only footpath in the world, ranging from Maine to Georgia and covering 2200 miles. We don't expect you to cover 2200 miles in one month - anything over 25 miles will enable you to complete the challenge. The route is based on the southernmost end of the Appalachian Trail, finishing in Georgia at Springer Mountain. You can view the route in detail by clicking on the interactive map below.

Again, we have awesome medals, certificates and extra goodies for your winners packs. Once you have completed the distance you wish to achieve, you simply send us a .jpeg to verification@fitwins, as explained here.

We like to choose unique virtual routes and share geographical facts about the routes that we use.

The Appalachian Trail, or AT, stretches more than 2,000 miles along the US East Coast.

The longest marked trail in the country runs from Georgia to Maine. It connects 14 states and passes through ridges and valleys of the Appalachian mountain range.  Each year, thousands of people attempt to hike the entire AT. Only one in four succeeds.  You can find out more about the AT by clicking here.

Virtual challenges? What are they? We select a distance and link to a global location - a virtual route. We select different challenges each month and design a bespoke, limited edition medal. All medals will reflect our challenge selection, are unique, and will be a great addition to your medal collection. Our challenges.

Fun fact: The Battle of Marathon involved a runner called Pheidippides running from Marathon to Athens to deliver news of a Greek victory over an invading Persian army. Lots of people run marathons in places all over the world and dedicate themselves to running a marathon (which is based on the distance from Marathon to Athens). You don't need to be in Marathon, Greece to run one.

Similarly, for our challenges, whether you complete the distance on the treadmill, use your local running route, or walk the distance with friends...we don't mind as long as you cover your distance. We'll send you your awesome 'Appalachian Trail Challenge' medal when you've done it. It's awesome...just like you!
