Runner's World Boston Challenge

Run 26.2 miles from April 8 through April 17

Challenge Ended: April 17, 2017
Whether you’re logging your final miles before toeing the line in Hopkinton or just looking to get in the spirit of Boston, we invite you to join us in running 26.2 miles over the next 10 days. Run your miles fast or slow, all at once or spread out—it doesn't matter. Take the challenge and we'll see you at the finish line on April 17th!

For more motivation and running advice, don't forget to join our Strava Club.

Will you be in Boston for the marathon? We’d love to see you! The first 3,000 participants who complete the challenge and come by Strava’s shop at 91 Newbury Street between April 13th and 17th, 2017 will be given a complimentary pair of Boston running socks!

Participants are also invited to visit the Runner's World Pop Up at 899 Boylston Street in Boston, open April 14-16th. Stop by and check out limited-edition Boston apparel, meet RW personalities, and join in some special activities. And get those last-minute miles in with a shakeout run, hosted by RW and Strava, on Saturday, April 15th. Details to come!
