Why Run Across America?
- Have fun while reaching a new fitness goal.
- We can come together to help support Feeding America to keep food on the table for our neighbors.
- Stay motivated and moving through the season by setting a goal of 50 km (or more) to achieve this summer.
How does this event work?
You get to choose a goal (50km, 100km, 250km, or 500km) to achieve this season 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, roll, bike, elliptical, even kayak.
Can I use a treadmill?
Definitely! However you move, you can record it with the app.
What are the bonus challenges?
Your Summer Splash 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. Early registration is now open so you get first dibs on limited edition merchandise. 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.
When does registration close?
Registration for summer is open now. Registration is organized into on-ramps. The first on-ramp to summer will close on June 6.
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.
🎁 Family deal! Order 2 or more registrations and save 5%! 4 or more will earn you 10% off. Savings will apply automatically in your cart.

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). You can start running with your team as soon as you register. Medals (created by partner Ashworth Awards, maker of the Boston Marathon medals) are now included as a registration item!
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?
Accurate shipping estimates are provided during sign-up! Most merchandise is printed on-demand as orders are placed (unless stated otherwise), with items taking about 1-2 weeks to arrive. Getting in early will assure that you receive your merchandise as soon as possible!
Do you have other shirt sizes available? What about other products?
Registration comes with a super-soft unisex shirt or women's performance tee. It's only available in the sizes listed (a limitation of our shirt supplier). If there are additional products you'd like to see, let us know!
Participating in the event
Can my team work toward a shared goal?

Can I participate with friends who start in another on-ramp?
