Summer Challenge Time!

Summer is coming and we need some motivation to keep moving in the hot summer months! The parks are beautiful, and the sun sets are later and later!! Right now, as we slowly move through the summer and await our next training cycle in August, we need to continue to stay active and healthy! 


This year we are changing things up and want to invite you to join us for a Summer Milage Challenge! In leu of our regular summer maintenance training program, we are offering a challenge that will allow you to get your miles in a time that works for you!  Fleet Feet Chico is also offering weekly Saturday community runs, so you can meet with a group and get your miles in together! First Saturday run will be June 1st and will continue each week through August 31st. All Saturday morning runs will start at the water tower at 3rd St. and Orient. This is a safe place to park, pick up the Annie Glen path into lower Bidwell Park and when your Finished you are close to the local farmers market or downtown to grab a coffee or breakfast treat with your run buds! 


How the challenge will work: 

You set the pace. The goal is to stay active and moving through the hot summer months. To make this happen we are going to have a mileage challenge to help us stay accountable! 250 Miles from Memorial Day to Labor Day, let's go! Thats an average of 2.50 miles a day! Log your miles on our challenge page or join our Strava page and keep track of them there! As a group, let's hit a summer goal of 12,000 miles!!! If everyone stays on track, we can do it!!

Join Fleet Feet for a fun summer holiday activity. We will be hosting a Summer "Merica" Beer Relay on June 20th at Fleet Feet Chico at 6:00pm.

How does the relay work?

With your team of 4 you will decide what order you and your runners will run.

Each runner will start my running a mile (see route) and upon return you will "slam" a cold beer!  Once your beer is done, the next runner will start.

Can you skip the beer? Yes, but a minute will be added to your team's time.

First team to have all 4 runners finish their mile and beer wins!
