The 700 Mile Challenge is Here!

The 700 Mile Challenge is here! For the medal we were inspired by the Andy Warhol -leader in the pop art movement. Instead of soup the cans say “Whoop Ass” and “Raw Endurance”. We also added new zany levels to the run tracker up to 700 miles.

Keep adding to your mileage this year or start over from zero. “You CAN do hard things!” Sign up here.

The “Social Distancing” Run 2021 Edition

At the start of the pandemic we didn’t imagine that in 2021 so many in-person races would still be cancelled or postponed.

Last year we launched the Social Distance Run in response to many of our members asking us to host a virtual race. The event went viral and 15,300 people joined in, which kept us very busy here at MTA.

We just launched the “Social Distancing” Run 2021 Version. We took last year’s medal and changed it to a beautiful blue color with earth in the background -since we are all united by running. The socially distant runners are carrying new items (like a vaccine). Register now and save $5! See more details here.

Big thanks to Runners’ World for recommending the MTA Podcast to their readers. See article here.

“If you’re training for 26.2, running coach Angie Spencer and her husband, Trevor, have everything you need to reach the finish line. Having hit the podcast’s 10th anniversary in 2020, the duo provides plenty of training tips, interviews, and reviews of marathons from around the world. (Angie has run one in every state!) While they don’t always bring on guests, runners like Sara Hall, Dathan Ritzenhein, and even actor Sean Astin have all stopped by.”

100 Mile Challenge is Now Live!

You’ve heard of the Mona Lisa . . . let me introduce you to The “Corona Lisa” 100 Mile Challenge. Perhaps my greatest masterpiece! 😆

This will be a unique challenge because it requires you to run (or walk) 100 miles. You accumulate the miles over a certain number of days, the goal is up to you. Some of you will be able to log 100 miles in 1 month, some faster some slower.

We also had a fun online Run Tracker built for you to log your miles, watch your progress, and unlock new digital badges. Plus we added some freebies from Coach Angie on the run tracker page.

Check out my video for all the details:
