How does Spring Start work?

Marcou get to choose a goal (50 to 500km) to achieve between March 13 and May 28.  All season long, you'll record your activities and track your progress with our top-rated app. Along the way, we’ll have bonus events, badges, and more to keep you motivated and moving.


Do I have to run?  What if I'm not a runner?

You don't have to be a runner to participate—you can move however you like! We have more than 20 different activity types, run, walk, walk the dog, roll, bike, elliptical, even kayak. You can mix them up throughout the season or stick with just one activity, it's totally up to you.


Can I use a treadmill?

Definitely! However you move, you can record it with the app.  There’s even a special tracking mode for indoor activities.


What are the bonus challenges?

Your Winter Warmup registration includes exciting bonus challenges to help keep you motivated and moving. Each event will earn you a badge, and all of them count toward your overall progress toward your goal. Find out about the challenges as they happen in the Run Across America app.


How do I sign up?

To join—you first register on this site. After registration, you'll get an email with a unique code and instructions to download the Run Across America app that we use for the event. From there you can create a team and challenge friends to join you virtually.



Can I register my whole family at once?

As long as any physical items you order (shirts, medals) are set to go to the same address, you can register as many people as you'd like at once. Just add multiple registrations to your cart. We'll send you a unique code per registrant so everyone can set up the app/enter their info on their own phone.

What does registration include?

Your registration includes event entry, access to our exclusive route tracking app, seasonal bonus challenges, and an optional merchandise item (bundle up and add additional items for only $25 each).


I'm an annual pass holder, when will I get my free access code?

Daily Distance Annual Pass holders get free entry to a whole year of fun. The pass holder codes will be sent out a couple weeks before each season to ensure you've got plenty of time to get set up before the event starts.


When will I receive my shirt and other shipped items?

Most merchandise is shipped near the end of the season, so you have a reward waiting for you as you strive toward your goal.


Do you have other shirt sizes available? What about other products?

Registration comes with your choice of merch. Selections vary by season, but typically include a shirt, medal, and third item.  Size choices are available during registration. Additional products are also available in our Merch shop.
