Welcome to the 2023 RunnerDude 1000 Mile Club! Your goal is to log 1000 miles between January 1, 2023 and January 1, 2024! These are your miles. You can run, walk, or run and walk your miles. These can be inside, outside, or inside and outside miles.
Runners (and walkers) are awesome people and as such we’re using the honor system. You can choose to log your miles however you’d like. You can go old-school and record your miles on a wall calendar or you can use a fancy app. It’s not required, but there will be a special Strava Club set up on the Strava App for participants in the 2023 RunnerDude’s 1000 Mile Club. It’s a great app for logging your miles and for club member to connect and support each other.
2023 RunnerDude’s 1000 Mile Club members will also have access to a private Facebook group page to motivate one another and to celebrate their milestones. Post a picture when you reach your first 100 miles in your year-long challenge. Post a picture of soggy you when you run in that downpour cause you had to get in your miles. Post when you compete that race you’ve been wanting to run. Post a picture when you PR in a race during the next 12 months.
We’ve had hundreds of participants since the inaugural club in 2018! Since we started the club in 2018 we’ve had runners and walkers from 11 states represented in the club (NC, SC, GA, FL, OH, MO, NE, NY, PA, TX, VA)! Let’s shoot for all 50 in 2022! This year, we’ve also had participants logging miles in Canada, India, and Sweden!!
WeeDoggie! You’re going to do amazing things over the next year.
Every club member will receive a 2023 RunnerDude’s 1000 Mile club T-shirt and Magnet. All members reaching their 1000 miles during 2023 will also receive a special finisher medal! WeeDoggie! And don’t forget, those runners that reach 1500 miles or more will receive a surprise bonus!
(Actual medal design may vary.)
After registering, RunnerDude will email you with more specific information about the club. T-shirt order will be placed after registration is closed on Jan 1, 2023. The T-shirts and magnets will be shipped or ready for pickup in mid to late February. You can wear your T-shirt during the year to keep you motivated, or you can wait and wear it once you’ve completed your miles!
