JOIN THE run for ruby valley, nepal
Welcome to the Ruby Valley 30 Day Challenge. This race was created as a personal challenge to dedicate 30 days towards becoming stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually.
For 30 days, starting October 1st, you will have the opportunity to challenge yourself to run as many half marathons (13.1 miles) as possible. Why 13.1 miles you say? Because its very achievable for most people committed to living a better life, not that difficult to train for, and very challenging for those who want to push themselves to greater levels of personal discipline and higher satisfaction.
WHY DONATE YOUR MILES?
AN INTERNAL JOURNEY WITH EXTERNAL RESULTS
As a part of the challenge to improve our own lives, its also designed to help bring hope to others. At HAU Gear our initiative is that of equipping women of all ages, living as villagers in remote parts of Nepal, with the vocational skills necessary to bring economic hope to themselves, their families, and their community. To learn more click the video below.
At any time during the event friends, family, and corporations get the opportunity to sponsor each run you complete. Beyond the motivation that sponsorship can bring towards pushing you beyond the “quit factor” it also brings awareness to people groups living in remote parts of the world. Each donation helps HAU Gear to expand the development of remote trekked regions of Nepal seeking for economic and social improvement.
- There is no limit to how many half marathons you can run. Even running (1) half marathon during the 30 day challenge would be super awesome
- You choose the location to run and the time of day
- You provide your own aid station and/or support crew… or just self-support
- What is a run and how does it count? A run is your ability to run/walk/crawl a minimum of 13.1 miles continuously during the course of a day. Running 6.6 miles in the morning and 6.6 miles at night is awesome for your cardio workout but would not qualify as a run for the challenge 🙂
- Also, running more than 13.1 miles continuously is an awesome achievement but those extra miles only count if they meet the next half marathon milestone. For example, if you run a marathon (26.2 miles) that would count as (2) half marathons, (2) runs. However, if you run 39 miles, it still only counts as 2 runs since you’d have had to run 39.3 miles to complete (3) half marathons.
- There is no limit to how many half marathons you run per day or night over the course of the month
- Yes, you can run streets or trails
- No, you can’t have someone else run for you. That’s a naughty thing to do. We also call it cheating…on yourself
- There is no limit to how many people can sponsor you. 100% of all the proceeds go to our HAUGEAR nonprofit foundation to help create sustainable vocational education for the villagers in Nepal (Check out our clinics)
- You do not need to be sponsored to run. This is a totally FREE event…but it would be awesome if others wanted to support you and sponsor the initiative 🙂
- Can you run and raise awareness and support for another cause? Absolutely! Simply let us know which nonprofit you would like to promote and we’ll reach out to them to let them know you want to raise support for them. That way you can have people and corporations make a pledge for each run you complete and have that pledge benefit your nonprofit.
