• RIO 2016.Six years ago, inspired by the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, we created the Gold Challenge series. We wanted for each and every participant to experience what winning a Gold medal means. We completely transformed our running community.

  • TOKYO 2020.Now, as we come up on our fifth anniversary we are rolling out the Gold Challenge Olympiad –an Olympiad is a period of four year associated with the Olympic Games of the Ancient Greeks– with 500, 1000, 1500, 2000 miles options and a real size Olympic medal.


1. Set an olympic goal: 500, 1000, 1500, 2000 miles 2. Set a finish time: August 9, 2020 –end of Tokyo Olympiad, or December 31 3. Join the Olympic Virtual 5k and 10k runs, July 24 - August 9, live the Olympic Spirit

We may never play on the OLYMPIC STAGE — but we can still live the Olympic dream in our own life

Never put an age limit on Your Own Olympic dream. Make it happen. Start now.

The Gold Challenge Olympiad is made to nurture hope and dreams in people, and inspire you, as a participant, to work even harder to reach your goal.
