How Far Can You Go?

Introducing the Get To Sesame Street Challenge

Over the next 6-12 months, run, walk or hike either 100 or 500 cumulative miles and be rewarded with Sesame character pins as you hit 6 milestones along the way.

Registration is now open and will allow you to get a head-start on your miles for 2021. Don't wait - sign up now!

How This Works

We have partnered with Sesame Workshop, the non-profit behind Sesame Street, to bring you this unique virtual distance challenge. This officially licensed event can be done on your own time and in any location.

You Choose

The Get To Sesame Street 2021 Challenge gives you the opportunity to run, walk, hike or otherwise go either 100 or 500 miles in 2021. You get to choose which distance gives you the best challenge and opportunity of success.

What You Get

Each registration comes with the accountability to stay on track with 6 milestone completion pins and a sweet finisher medal. The pins are 1" and each pin has a spot reserved for it on the medal ribbon. Entry into the series, the 6 pins, 1 finisher medal, additional challenges along the way and a supportive community are all just $99.95. Plus Free Shipping! You will have the opportunity to add a waterproof keepsake printed bib and/or a challenge t-shirt to commemorate this memorable experience.

The only way to receive each pin and the medal is to earn them by going the distance and reporting to your VRC account once you're done with each milestone. Each pin is sent after you accomplish each milestone.

Medals & Shipping

After you complete your first milestone, we will send your series ribbon AND the first milestone pin.

When you complete your 2nd through 5th milestone, we'll send each of those pins.

Following your 6th milestone, we'll send your 6th pin AND the finisher medal. The medal will attach to the ribbon and the ribbon will have 6 spots where you can stick your pins.

Pins will ship about 2-3 weeks following each time you report completion of each milestone.

Shirts & Bibs & SHIPPING

There is one shirt and one bib design that you can add on to your order. Shirts start at just $13 and bibs are only $6. 

All shirts and bibs are printed specifically for each participant, so be sure to check out the size charts because we'll have none to exchange.

The next deadline to register for a shirt is December 2, 2020. If you register by then, your shirt will arrive just before Christmas Day.

Register by January 5, 2021 and your shirt and/or bib will arrive by the end of January. Shirts and bibs may not be offered after ⅕.

NOTE: Because of international product disruption, if the chosen shirt is no longer available, the next closest shirt color will automatically be substituted for you.

How Shipping Works

All swag ships separately. Shirts, Medals and Pins ship with a tracking email from support@virtualrunningclub.com. Bibs are sent first class with a stamp. Sometimes bibs are set aside as a bill or other mail. They are in a white envelope.

All items will ship according to the timelines listed for each items in this dropdown.

Reporting

Reporting for each milestone will open in early January 2021 and will be open through all of 2021. 

You are welcome to start tabulating your miles as soon as you sign up even if it's not January yet.

Distance Options

You can choose either 100 or 500 miles for this challenge. If you would like to do both 100 AND 500, it will require two separate registrations.

Do I have to Run?

You can do your distance however works best for you. Ideally the distance will be completed using your own power, but we allow for adaptation for those not able to move in that way. Do what is right for you.
