Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for the challenge?2020-12-22T18:01:42+00:00

There’s no separate registration for the Golden State Challenge. Simply register and complete four qualifying races in a single calendar year and you will automatically receive your challenge medal at the fourth race.

Do virtual races count?2020-12-22T18:02:43+00:00

Yes! If you run any of the qualifying races as a virtual run, your entry will count towards the total.

Can I run multiple distances at a single event to qualify?2020-12-22T18:05:27+00:00

No. To earn the Golden State Challenge medal you’ll need to complete a race of 5K or longer at four separate events. For example, completing the 5K and the half marathon at the Long Beach Marathon will only count as one race for the Golden State Challenge.
