Leading virtual event organizers invite participants to explore the USA during Amerithon multi-sport virtual event.
Run The Edge, the premiere organizers of virtual fitness challenges, are daring runners, hikers, cyclists, and swimmers to make their way across the United States in their 3,521-mile Amerithon Virtual Fitness Challenge. To mark the start of the country’s top multi-sport fitness challenge, Run The Edge is offering its first ever two-week free trial, the chance to win sunglasses from Goodr, and an opportunity to score the grand prize: an ElliptiGO MSUB. The 2019 Amerithon Challenge kicks off on July 4. Registration is now open and a free trial will be available at runtheedge.com/amerithon.
Whether tackled by a single athlete or a team of up to eight, participants have the opportunity to experience an engaging journey throughout the USA to earn badges, an epic six-piece medal and bragging rights. Get It All registration gives participants access to an online tracker, 36 interactive flyover videos, a private Facebook Group, milestone badges, motivational email messages, a dazzling 6-Piece medal, wall map, passport with milestone stickers, and a tech shirt.
Plus, Amerithon athletes have the chance to win some fit and fun products. Both registered and free-trial participants who complete at least 1 mile of activity from Jul. 4-18 will be entered to win Goodr Sunglasses, the widely popular sunglasses trusted by active people everywhere. Participants who finalize their registration for the full challenge and who exercise at least 20 days in July will be entered to win an ElliptiGO MSUB, the ultimate cross-training tool built for off-road riding.
“We just love creating ways to make health and fitness fun,” said Adam Goucher, co-founder of Run The Edge. “Plus, you have a chance to win sunglasses and an ElliptiGO bike just for exercising? Sign me up!”
