Welcome to the official site of our Virtual Run and/or Bike Across Maryland Challenge. This virtual event is designed to inspire you to “keep moving” and remain “race ready“, while having fun with your friends and family! Join us from June 22nd – September 14th. The event will take place over 12 weeks to give you the flexibility to complete all the challenge miles. Finish in 12 weeks or less. If you missed our starting week it will not be too late to enter…you will just have a shorter time to complete the challenge. Swag will be mailed to you later in the challenge.
You can use any run or bike workout beginning June 22, even if you are using those miles for other events. We have two distances to choose from. If you like MORE MILES join the full crossing of Maryland. If you want LESS MILES join the shorter distance!

At Racine MultiSports, we want to do our part to support the communities where we hold our events. In alignment with our mission, we have decided to support the Chesapeake Bay Foundation through donations collected from this event. Given our Maryland theme, its appropriate to align with an organization that has tremendous impact on this state. As you virtual navigate the course for this challenge you will cross over the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. During registration you will have the opportunity to make a tax deductible donation for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF). Your tax-deductible gift to CBF will restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay, its rivers, and its streams for generations to come. It is only through your critical support that our on-the-ground restoration, advocacy, education, and litigation efforts are possible. Thank you for standing up for this national treasure and for making CBF a part of your life. We thank you for considering helping this effort!
