Great American 5000

  • Watch Video

The Great American 5000 is a virtual team run from San Francisco to New York – and everywhere in between! Assemble your crew of up to 12 or up to 24 people, run a cumulative 24 hours a day, and start to chip away at the 5,000k (3,107-mile) journey. An online map will track each group’s virtual progress across the country and a leaderboard will display the standings each day, with groups in open, female, and co-ed categories.

 

Your team has until September 14 to complete the 5,000k trek – that’s as few as 33.4 miles per day for your team (1.4 for each individual)! Run, walk, hike - it can all count towards your team's mileage.

 

And you can make your achievement mean something even more by donating and helping raise funds for Feeding America, our official Race Charity.
