12 Months of Challenges. 

One Epically Active Year.

What is Challenge 2017? 

It’s a virtual fitness program that inspires consistent activity with The 50 States Challenge, improves health, fitness, and nutrition with monthly challenges and workout of the month, and supports you like a best friend with the Challenge Nation, a loving and supportive group of like-minded every day people.

Challenge 2017 includes three core elements:

12-monthly-challenges-red-3

Monthly Challenges: You’ll be challenged to improve your fitness, strength, speed, endurance, pacing, performance and more every month. 

Monthly Healthy Habits Challenge: Change happens in time. We’ll focus on creating healthy habits from what we eat, to how we organize our lives. We’ll start with one small habit, support one another along the way, and change our lives in small and big ways this year together.

Workout of the Month (WOMs): Every month, Coach Jenny will inspire you with a new workout designed to improve strength, fitness, performance or flexibility.

A year-long virtual challenge that will motivate you to exercise at least 30 minutes most days of the week! The goal, should you choose to accept it, is to move virtually through all 50 states, and across the USA. 

You’ll earn points for every day that you exercise at least 30 minutes continuously (ex. running, walking, cycling, yoga, elliptical and more…). You’ll keep track of your journey with our online log, with an easy to download Coloring Sheet, and even color in your states on the 50 States Challenge tech shirt (Deluxe package)!

The Challenge Nation embraces and celebrates active people of all abilities, ages, modes of activity, and all walks of life. Here you can find motivation and encouragement to take those first steps toward a healthier lifestyle or maintain established healthy habits.

From recreational runners and walkers to seasoned marathoners, anyone can find a neighborhood in our community. The Challenge Nation will cheer as you attain your goals, support if you falter, and always be there to support each other kindly along the way.

And that’s not all! You will also have access to Runner’s World’s Coach Jenny Hadfield to ask questions and get real training and fitness answers.

“I loved the Challenge! It kept me accountable and on track and helped me establish consistent movement every day. I’ve lost 13 pounds, had a half marathon persnal record and I’m healthfully trained for my second full marathon after an almost 10 year break from my first. Thank you for this!”

~Erica

“I can’t thank you enough for all the motivation and support. I logged over 1,000 miles, which for me, is simply amazing! I can’t wait for Challenge 2017!”

~Bruce

Coach Jenny and the Challenge group changed my life; I say that without exaggeration! 

~Sandra

“Challenge 2017, I am there! I had 56% increase in active minutes in 2016 and my goals will hopefully put me closer to 63%!”

~Bethany

“It was so much fun! I like how it kept me motivated and it was also neat to cheer everyone else on. I loved how it incorporated all activities, not just running.

~Catharine

“Loved the August Challenge with the Olympics theme! It inspired me to pay more attention to many of the habits I want to change. I have been so wrapped up in my running miles and neglecting many other areas that greatly impact my training, and this challenge really opened up my areas of needed focus.”

~Tara
