SNOW MOON 24 HR CHALLENGE
Pod Running is excited to announce a new 24 hour virtual race! The Snow Moon 24 Hour Challenge will take place on Saturday, February 27, 2021 @ 8am. The race is named for the full moon we will be running through that night! It’s a virtual race which means you will be competing from wherever you are in the world. Run 1 mile or run 100 miles!
Distances will be recorded using a gps watch or smartphone app (see info below). You will then submit it to us when you are finished, and we will compile the results. Finishers will receive an awesome winter hat mailed to them after the race is over and we will have tiered prizes for milestone distances completed.
You make your own course and run anytime you want in the 24 hour time period. Make it trail, road or even treadmill, run or walk, anyway you want it.

RECORDING YOUR PROOF/SUBMISSION
We are requiring GPS data to prove you ran or walked the miles and to help make sure our results are as fair and accurate for everyone in the race. Once you are done, screenshot as much information as possible (not just the watch face) and/or email us the link to your results (please make them public for our review) so we can tally them all.
All screenshots and links should be emailed to [email protected] by 8:00pm Eastern time on Sunday, February 28, 2021. (That will allow you 12 hours after you finish to submit your miles) If we do not receive an entry it will result in a DNF.
GPS Run Tracking/Options: If you don’t have a GPS watch, you can still use a free smartphone free app to track each of your runs/walks. Some of the better ones & our recommendations are Strava, Map My Run, or RunKeeper.. All are free and available on iOS or Android app stores for smartphones. I would recommend If you need one for the race, to download it, and become familiar with it before you start your miles.
To keep cost down, the winter hat will be in place of a shirt. However if you are still interested in a t-shirt, long sleeve or hoodie, we will have them available at an additional cost. See link below.

They will be posted on UltraSignup after all submissions have been reviewed, verified, and ranked. As stated above, this virtual is ‘proof-required.’
Use the hashtag #SnowMoon24 when sharing on social media to let us know your mileage throughout the day – we will try our best to give leaderboard updates throughout the 24 hours.
Due to the customer nature of our race “swag”, production and shipping timelines, and other issues, once you have finished and paid for your registration, no refunds are given. We will waive this policy on a case-by-case basis. To inquire about a refund, please email us and we’ll do all we can to help you out. Generally speaking, any refund given will be the total amount paid minus the processing fees taken during the transaction.
