Memorial Day Weekend Challenge




What is it? 

How does it work? 

Clock Miles. Win Prizes. Honor Veterans! Join others around the nation and participate in the Memorial Day Challenge 2024 where we will be clocking in miles in honor of the veterans we’ve lost. Registering and clocking in your miles also registers you to compete for some awesome prizes! A live scoreboard will be shown through May 24-27th and the top 3 men, women, and team will each take home a prize. It’s a great way to spend time honoring them in the midst of the Memorial Day Weekend festivities.

Participants will submit the miles they’ve clocked during the weekend. Miles determines the points awarded (based on calories burned). See the breakdown:

1 Mile Swim = 100 Points
3 Mile Paddle = 100 Points
3 Mile Ruck (+10% body weight) = 100 Points
4 Mile Run = 100 Points
4 Mile Walk = 100 Points
12 Mile Bike Ride = 100 Points

A LIVE scoreboard will show participants and points awarded throughout the weekend. The Challenge begins Friday, May 24 starting at 12:00 AM until Monday May 27 at 11:59 PM. Winners will receive prizes but more importantly, our goal is to reach 8,000 miles altogether.

How do I sign up?

Participants pay a $35 entry fee (which pays for a flag and a badge which will be shipped to you). Must sign up before May 20th to receive a flag & badge. Use the “REGISTER” button below to sign up!



Although we are all contributing to reaching the 8,000 miles goal, we are all competing for a chance to win some awesome prizes! There will be a 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place winner in each Male, Female, and Team Category.
