Tell me more about the challenge! 
This friendly competition will help keep you moving throughout the most beautiful seas
on our state has to offer, as well as the best running conditions! Each registrant will choose one of the ten NYS regions to run with and track their miles. The region with the most cumulative miles takes the title of “Best Running Community in NYS” all while helping local NYS United Ways! 
Registrants will get a cool lightweight, high-performance, long-sleeve shirt, with the region of their choice represented on the back, plus a finishers medal! This challenge is a competitor’s dream! As an individual, you will be able to track your personal mileage. You’ll also be a part of a region-wide effort, and can also take on the challenge as part of your own team! Get your friends, co-workers, or family together and RUN UNITED! 
Want to participate but running isn’t for you? 
That’s ok, you can track your mileage by running, jogging, hiking, or walking!
