We are quickly heading into the holiday (hello calories!) season! I do not know about you but come January 1, 2022 it is time to start the new year off right! Let's join together, build a healthy lifestyle and shed those extra pounds by taking on the 2022 KCSR Winter Distance Challenge.

Whatever your sport (walker, runner, cross country skier, snowshoer, swimmer, horseback rider, etc...) after the holidays is a prime time to set some goals and Go the Distance!  Join our Virtual Distance Challenge, choose your distance goal and support Kittitas County Search and Rescue - Youth Team! These fantastic teens are raising funds for scholarships to the Washington State Search and Rescue Conference 2022 as well as equipment such as Garmin InReach devices. As a 100% volunteer organization, we are putting our miles in to support you! During our 31 days of going whichever distance you choose, KCSR will be right there to provide you virtual cheerleaders, winter safety tips, and tons of fun!

This Virtual Distance Challenge consists of various distances to include all ages and abilities. You get to choose whatever sport you want to put effort into to complete your miles!  The best way to do this challenge is to grab a friend and challenge them to a specific distance and make it through the entire month of January together. The race begins on January 1st, 2022 and ends January 31st, 2022. Every individual will earn custom GO THE DISTANCE – KCSR Virtual Winter Challenge swag. All proceeds will go to Kittitas County Search and Rescue’s Youth Team so let's help these teens out!

Registration Deadline: January 5th, 2022.

How does a Virtual Race work?             

  • Join our Facebook Group: KCSR’s Winter Distance Challenge.  We are your support team, providing encouragement, winter tips, and lots of fun!
    Submit your weekly mileage using the Runsignup website.   The individual in each category with the most miles will win a prize!
  • Are you hardcore?  Download the Strava app and join our Club: Kittitas County Search and Rescue.  Strava lets you know when someone in your Club gets their miles done so it is a GREAT way to stay motivated. If your friend has completed their miles, now you have to do it!
  • In February, we will have a drive thru local pickup for the swag that you worked so hard to earn! We will mail swag for an additional $5 fee.
