Holiday Challenge

November 25–December 24

Row, ski or ride as much as you can between American Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. We have honorboards and downloadable certificates for everybody who reaches 50k (adaptive and kids only), 100k and 200k.

For every person who does at least 100k during the challenge (50k for adaptive athletes or athletes aged 16 or under), Concept2 will donate $.02 per kilometer (1000 meters) to your choice of the following organizations: The Pocock “A Most Beautiful Thing” Inclusion Fund, Go Give One COVID-19 vaccine campaign, WHO Foundation, Clima Fund, Right To Play or Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. And once you get beyond 100k, we'll donate $.04 per kilometer. Anybody who reaches 200k and has chosen to give money to charity will receive a free Holiday Challenge pin.

Note: BikeErg meters count for half the distance when applied to the challenge.
