We may be half way through the month already, but it’s not too late to join the Oregon Brewery Running Series August 2020 QuaRUNtine Virtual Distance Challenge, counting any miles you may have tracked through Strava (or are able to sync to Strava) August 1-31.
After you sign up, you will receive an email explaining where to log your miles. The very first time you establish this connection, it will ask you about your goal distance for the month. You will have to re-visit the website and update the permissions to view your Strava workouts in order to update your leaderboard standings. As the month progresses, the leaderboard is updated, participants are encouraged to participate in online happy hour meetups (every Thursday evening at 5pm on Zoom), interact on Facebook and Instagram, and each week there will be a coupon for a takeout order from a local brewpub.
To get started, register for this event on Eventbrite, Join the club on Strava* (it’s Free) to verify your miles, submit your miles, then win great prizes! A portion of the proceeds go directly to the #EmergeStronger Community Challenge, part of the Oregon Food Bank.
This month there are several levels for your registration: $45 gets you signed up for the challenge and eligible to win your goal prizes (see list below). $59 covers registration plus the “Run Far Drink Local” Mount Hood tshirt or tank. You also have the choice to register without receiving prizes, and the funds that would pay for the swag will also be donated to Oregon Food Bank. Prize pickup takes place early next month on various dates and at various small brewery locations.
