Tue September 15 – Tue December 15, 2020
Life has certainly set us all on an unexpected path in 2020, and due to public health concerns, this year’s event, originally scheduled for October, has now gone virtual!
With the incomparable beauty of Keuka Lake as our guide, participants can choose from two virtual challenge options: (1) Run or walk the equivalent of the entire 73-mile perimeter of Keuka Lake or (2) Make your way tip-to-tip over the 22-mile length from Penn Yan to Hammondsport. You’ll have from September 15, 2020 until December 15, 2020 to finish. Challenge yourself or form a team, and record and track your daily mileage online. All participants can receive a one-of-a-kind, special edition race shirt. The fee for entry is $45. That fee will be reduced by $5 per entry for teams with 10 or more members!
Need some motivation to maintain your fitness or manage the stress of current events? Go ahead and join one of our Keuka Comfort Care Home’s “Life Is A Journey… ” virtual challenge alternatives! Then, beginning on September 15, on your own schedule, run or walk outside or even inside on a treadmill. As long as you are walking or running for exercise, your mileage counts toward your daily total. At less than a mile per day, you can easily complete your challenge in the allotted time of three months. It’s all on the honor system, but you can record your miles and track your progress on our dedicated race website (currently under construction—more information to follow) to help keep you motivated. And maybe you’ll learn a bit more about the remarkable Keuka Lake area in the process!
Many of our usual plans and activities may have been put on hold this year, but we can still get out, stay fit, and—most importantly—keep ourselves and our communities safe for all. All race proceeds after expenses will go to support the Keuka Comfort Care Home, whose mission is to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those who have reached the end of their journey (at no cost to them). For more information about the Keuka Comfort Care Home visit their website using the links provided.
Here’s hoping you’ll join in the fun of our Keuka Lake Comfort Care Home Third Annual Life is a Journey… Run/Walk: Virtual COVID-19 Edition!
