March Running Distance Challenge

How far can you run this month?

Challenge Ended: March 31, 2020
The Distance Challenge is a monthly opportunity to push yourself. Whether you start the Challenge at the beginning of the month or join in the last week, set a distance goal and make it happen. You'll get progress updates to keep you motivated along the way. Make it to 200 km and you'll earn a finisher's badge.

Did you know that 57% of runners never hit the snooze button? And that men report loving running uphill more than women do? We didn't either. But after surveying 25,000 runners on Strava, we discovered a ton about why we do this crazy thing.

Find out what we learned from our largest study of runner motivation.


We expect all athletes to honor the Strava Community Standards, which includes abiding by all health advisements and restrictions in your area prior to undertaking any physical activity.

If you are located in an area that does not allow outdoor activity, you may not participate. Please see our blog with information about exercising during a pandemic.
