Race Works is excited to bring back The Peach State Challenge. We heard so many positive reviews and thank yous from our challenge the last two Summers! Over 1,700 participants completed over 300,000 miles in the last 2 years! While in person is back and better than ever, we want to provide an opportunity to encourage each other once again all Summer long. While we hope to see you all at an in-person race soon, we can compete and encourage from anywhere!
For the newbies, we are bringing to you a summer challenge to get out and stay fit. Have you ever thought what it would be like to run on the interstate across Georgia or the perimeter in Atlanta? Neither have we until now! Once you choose your distance to complete - each time you log your miles your results page will show you where in Georgia you would be along the route. You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside as long as you log the miles. You do not have to run or walk each day, you just have to finish the total distance (you can also go above and beyond!) between June 21st and September 21st. That is 3 months to complete the goal of your choice! You can choose to have a reminder each day to log your distances as well as daily updates with your location and cumulative distanced logged. We will have a live leader board at the RESULTS page for you to see how you place among the other participants daily! We ask that you join our Facebook group and tag any of your photos on social media with the #PeachStateChallenge so we can follow along!
All Participants will receive a shirt, race medal, and sticker once they complete the event distance (we will begin shipping at the end of August). All made in the USA! All mileage must be submitted at your unique results page each day or each time you complete a daily mileage (you can enter mileage from previous days or whatever is convenient for you!
**Disclaimer: Please do not run on unsafe roads, or areas that have been closed off to the public. The interstates and highways are not open for pedestrian traffic, this is a virtual run/walk only.

Make a difference in your community! Many Georgians have been affected by the current pandemic. Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Many Georgians are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children, seniors, and rural Georgians – are at greatest risk. All proceeds from this challenge will benefit the Georgia Food Bank Association, a 501(c)3 organization comprised of seven regional food banks working to end hunger in their local communities. The goal is to match the funds raised with the zip code you registered under to the food bank for your area! For more info, visit: https://georgiafoodbankassociation.org/

Common Trouble Shooting Questions For Recording Miles

Q: I got my link, but I'm confused on how to log my miles.
A: Here is a video to walk you through how to log miles with the link: https://youtu.be/s2eIBZq6fkM
