Up for A 2012 Challenge?
Love adventure? Love to run, walk or bike in unique events? The Explore Minnesota Challenge is a brand new race series, brought to you by Explore Minnesota and Anderson Race Management, that takes you on an adventure across Minnesota as you participate in running, walking, biking or triathlon events throughout 2012.
Your goal: to complete at least 8 of more than 20 participating events across Minnesota throughout 2012; at least one in each of the four designated areas of the state.
As a Challenge participant, your $50 fee includes annual Minnesota Distance Running Association (MDRA) membership and 2012 race calendar ($25 value); a backpack starter kit including a fleece hat, MDRA Annual and Magazine, Midwest Events Magazine, Explore Minnesota Travel Guide and State Highway map as well as coupons from running partners. Throughout the Challenge you will receive commemorative lapel pins for each of the areas in which you participate; a lanyard to collect your pins, and chances throughout the year to win exploration/vacation packages as well as entries into races that are part of the series. Upon completion of 8 events, including one in each of the 4 designated areas, you will receive a commemorative State of Minnesota Medal and finisher's shirt.
You select the races you want to take part in based on your schedule (registration for events is separate).
