Inspire Columbus is our winter training challenge. Start your year off by streaking through the month of January, running or walking at least a mile every single day. The catch? No matter what the weather throws at us, your mile only counts if you complete it outdoors. Bundle up and get inspired, it's time to rise to the challenge!
Look, we get it - January is a tough month when it comes to maintaining motivation. This month-long program injects wintry fun into your miles, keeping you running strong as we start the new year right. Still need more motivation? How about prizes? Everyone loves prizes.
The setup is simple. When you register, you're making a commitment to yourself to run or walk at least one mile outdoors every day in January. At the end of the month, if you logged at least one outdoor mile each day, we'll reward you with a $20 CRC gift card. Each week, we'll also be randomly awarding small prizes to some of those whose daily streaks are still going strong. You could win anything from a Mizuno winter hat or gloves to bagged coffee from one of our local coffee shops.
So are you ready to take on the season like an abominable snowman on an endless runner's high? Don't let a little thing called winter slow you down. Join CRC and Mizuno as we keep the inspiration coming throughout January, keeping you on track for those 2022 running and walking goals.
So how can I run like an Alaskan Husky pulling the winning sled at the Iditarod?
That's a question we've all asked ourselves a hundred times. It's simple. Sign up here. Registration is $15. Once registered, challenge yourself to run or walk outdoors every day in January. If that sounds tough, we're going to be offering incentives to keep you going (full details farther below). Streak for a week or more and you could win prizes from CRC and Mizuno. Complete all 31 days and you'll earn a $20 CRC gift card.
How do I make Jack Frost my new training partner?
Commit yourself to a goal. It's as simple as that, though we all tend to overcomplicate it. Just layer up, get those miles in, and then grab yourself a hot chocolate while you start planning the next day's outdoor adventure.
Can we talk about those prizes some more?
Everyone who completes the challenge will earn a $20 CRC gift card. We'll also be awarding Mizuno + CRC raffle prizes each week in January, and you can win by simply logging those outdoor miles. To be eligible for a weekly prize, you have to log at least one outdoor mile each day the previous week. You can log your miles here (and you can find further details in our program details below).
It's not a race. It's not a coached training program. Inspire Columbus is a challenge. When you register, you're signing up to take that challenge. To show that you can rage like a human blizzard. To prove that you're capable of anything that you put your mind to.
