The R4R Virtual Challenge starts today!

Are you ready to log your miles over the next three weeks?  Our collective goal is to get to 50,000 miles by April 24th, equivalent to about 455 cyclists riding from Oakland to Sacramento.  Let’s do this!  

Full instructions on how to add your miles to your profile page on RunSignUp is below, so check them out. You can even upload your GPX, FIT or TCX files if you use a fitness tracking tool like Strava of Garmin. Enter in your first activity and get the “Off the Couch” Badge!

As of today, we have 260 registered participants who have goals such as biking 500 miles, running 200 miles and doing their own solo ride to Sacramento in a day.  Collectively, the team has raised more than $61,000 with $123,000 left to raise by the end of the school year.  If you haven’t sent out that fundraising email, today is a great time to start!

Lastly, we hope that you’ll join us for the Virtual Finish Line event on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 5PM -- this is a new time -- (RSVP here).  It won’t be like the finish line in Sacramento but we’ll get to hear from some students, teachers, and other special guests. We hope that you’ll also consider sharing some photos and videos of you training or ticking off the miles of your challenge which we’ll compile into a special team segment during the event (more info to come on this!)

Love and community,
Your R4R Planning Team
