What gold people are saying


Is it 500 / 1000 / 1500 / 2000 miles in one year? Or 100 days of running/exercise in 2019?

2019 Gold Challenge isn't about being fast or even athletic. It's about making the commitment to reach your goal… It’s a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. Because when you reach that goal, you don’t simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.

What's Next?

We make running fun. This is the place Where Running Meets Humor! We believe running is a uniquely awesome way to keep fit and stay centered, to cultivate “alone” time and also to meet new friends, to challenge ourselves and have fun. We also believe in the power of humor, and that it’s OK to poke a little fun at the sport that we all love.

Finally, we believe that all runners can—and should—do their best to inspire others to run. While your running is personal, it's also something you can give. RUNNING CAN BE GIVEN!
