QUESTION: What happend to the “10 Trail Challenge” where you guide participants through specific trails like in the recent Summer and Fall 10 Trail Challenges?
ANSWER: Due to catastrophic flood here in BC, we’ve postponed that type of Challenge for the time being and pivoted to this virtual challenge that anyone can do from anywhere in the world without having to venture out onto roads or trails that are under repair. We think this new challenge is kind of awesome as we’ve made a bunch of fun activities for you to complete while you’re out walking and running. You’ll be supporting your local community as well as BC flood relief. And don’t fear! Once the weather calms down, and roads and trails are repaired, we’ll look forward to creating trail-specific challenges again.
QUESTION: Can I see the list of trails before I register? What if I can’t drive to the trails, roads are flooded, or they’re too far away?
ANSWER: There is no trail list and this event does not require driving to Chilliwack. Because of the floods we’ve changed the nature of this 10 Trail Challenge. Previous Challenges guided participants through 10 specific trails. We can’t do that at this time because trails and roads are in disrepair. As a result, we’ve created 10 trail-based and 10 local-route-based activities that can be done in any town anywhere in BC or around the world. Instead of recommending specific trails, in this Challenge we recommend different types of trails, terrain, and distances for each activity. Some activities can even be done in your own neighborhood, others on trails near your home. Participants use the instructions from each activity as their guide to pick a suitable local trail or route in town (ones they know are accessible) to complete each Challenge activity.
We’ve also made two of the Challenge activities visible and “unlocked” so you can see a random sampling. See them here. Scroll down the page and find “Timby” and “The Gump”. You’ll see there are 20 different activities (each with a unique “share kindness” activity built in), so there’s a wide variety of adventures waiting for you. You’ll have fun checking these off with friends and family.
And, finally, each of the Challenge’s 20 activities have a walking option and a running option to choose from. We had fun making and testing these Challenges and we think people are going to have fun this winter doing them solo or with family or friends. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s results from Challenge #5 “The Rocky” and Challenge #7 “Blurrier”.
QUESTION: Who can participate?
ANSWER: This Challenge is open to adults anywhere in the world. You do NOT need to live in Chilliwack, BC, or even Canada to participate. Families are welcome to participate together with registered parents. Sign up and invite a friend to register and complete a Challenge with you today 🙂
