Location: Absolutely anywhere
Join us for the inaugural (and hopefully only!) running of the Lockdown, an AR-style virtual activity challenge designed to bring a little bit of "normalcy" to your lives, at least for a few days!
Participants will have a four-day (96-hour) window to complete 21 hours of activity, in eight stages:*
Stage 1: Run/Trek
Stage 2: Bushwhack
Stage 3: Road Ride
Stage 4: Trail Ride
Stage 5: Multisport
Stage 6: Non-Bike/Run Discipline
Stage 7: Strength Building
Stage 8: Navigation challenge
The challenge must be completed by May 31, 2020. Anyone who signs up will receive a t-shirt in the mail. Prizes will be drawn randomly from all official finishers. To be an official finisher, you must complete all eight stages, including any embedded challenges. Participant packet will be sent by email within 24 hours of registration.
100% of proceeds beyond t-shirt costs will be donated to covid-19 relief efforts, split evenly between the WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and the No Kid Hungry Coronavirus Fund.
*Stages can be completed in any order
**This is NOT an official race. Rootstock Racing is not taking a dime from this activity. Your entry fee buys you a t-shirt, shipping for that t-shirt, and a set of detailed instructions for how to create your very own socially-distanced adventure challenge during these days of self-isolation and quarantine. This challenge is totally at your own risk. Be safe, make good choices, follow all applicable directives regarding public lands and CDC recommendations, and make sure you have gear suitable for your local environment.**
