Catch The Grinch That Stole 2020!


It is that time of year again! The Gingerbread Run, you know and love, has a new twist. We need your help to “Catch The Grinch That Stole 2020!” The 31-day virtual event allows everyone a chance to participate by choosing to run, walk, swim, hike, ski, bike, anytime, anywhere (even inside!). There are six (6) challenges to choose from so you can find many ways, in 31 days to complete one or all. The interactive route you choose will have a map to log your miles. We have designed each challenge to have a fun, specially designed medal to commemorate your accomplishment.



We have added four (4) easy ways to earn extra swag. You can earn logoed apparel like a neck gaiter, knit cap, ½ zip pullover and even cash back on this challenge, all for bringing friends and family to join you in this exciting challenge!
