  • 2019 First Man on the Moon 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2

    *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE!

    July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969  as part of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar mission.  We at Moon Joggers are super excited to celebrate this historic event with our First Man On the Moon 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2!   


    We will be donating at least 15% of each registration to the Challenger Center. In  the aftermath of the Challenger accident, the crew’s families came together, firmly committed to the belief that they must carry on the spirit of their loved ones by continuing the Challenger crew’s educational mission. Their efforts resulted in the creation of Challenger Center for Space Science Education. Challenger Center and its global network of Challenger Learning Centers use space-themed simulated learning and role-playing strategies to help students bring their classroom studies to life and cultivate skills needed for future success, such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication and teamwork. Challenger Center reaches hundreds of thousands of students, and tens of thousands of teachers every year.


    *For a limited time get your official t-shirt and/or hoodieHERE.


    What: This is a 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2  virtual run (or walk) to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the first man landing on the moon!  You choose which distance you want to complete.

    When: Complete your race any time in July, even better if it's July 20th!   


    *Medals and bibs will ship at the end of June.  After that they will ship within 2 to 5 days of signing up


    Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).


    Why:  Because we want to celebrate the first man landing on the moon!


    Cost:  The price is $20 and that includes your medal, bib and shipping. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to the Challenger Center.   *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them.


     


    WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked)  from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!

    *This is what the First Man on the Moon lapel pin looks like.
