Christmas Chase 1k FAQs

How does the Christmas Chase 1k work?
The Christmas Chase 1k is an optional bonus challenge in the Holiday Hustle. You'll need to run/walk/hike 1 km all at once to complete it.
If you're using our in-app tracker, it will automatically let you know when you've reached 1km and record your Christmas Chase 1k result.
 
How do I start the Christmas Chase 1k?
The Christmas Chase 1k is included with your Holiday Hustle registration and is open for you through Friday 12/25 in the Run Across America app:
Does the Christmas Chase 1k count toward the overall challenge?  
Yes! The 1 km from the Christmas Chase 1k counts toward your overall challenge distance. 
 
How many times can I run the Christmas Chase 1k?
You've got one chance to run the Christmas Chase 1k. If you start off on the wrong foot or encounter a problem while underway, you can reset before you finish and try again later. In the tracker, tap Stop, then Problem? then Restart to get back to the home screen and start again when you're ready.
 
Do I need to run exactly 1k?
Your Christmas Chase 1k needs to be 1 km as that's the event distance. If you want to add a longer or shorter distance to your Holiday Hustle overall goal, you can still use the normal Add some km button to do that. That button is available before and after you complete the optional Christmas Chase 1k. 
 
When is the Christmas Chase 1k deadline?
You have until Friday, 12/25 to record your Christmas Chase 1k. Don't worry—you still have until New Year's Day to reach the whole Hustle 50km goal!
