Did your summer or fall ultra race get cancelled? Running a virtual race and looking for another medal?  Welcome to the Chaski People's Ultra & Relay.​​

5k

Not quite ultra-ready? Run or walk the Chaski Classic 5K!​

You can run/jog/walk on the road, on a track, on a treadmill, or even around your living room if that's what you have available.

When

Choose your start: Run at your convenience during the week of ​November 22 - 29

We recognize the value of being able to run on your own schedule. So, we're giving you the option of racing any time during the week (including two Sundays!) leading up to the race!

How

First, make sure you register! 

​Then comes race week. You can run at any time from Sunday Nov. 22 to Sunday Nov. 29. Just make sure you're finished and your results are submitted before 11:59pm PST on Sunday Nov 29!

​Next, go out and train your butt off - and don't forget to post and use 

#ChaskiChallengeUltra and #ChaskiChallenge5k so we can highlight your hard work!​

How does the running actually work?

Simply go out and run your race: 31.1 miles (50km) or 3.11 miles (5km) on a measured course, treadmill, or using a GPS watch to track distance. Make sure you obey local recommendations and restrictions regarding exercise and group gatherings.

After

​Finally, submit your time to our results database (and give yourself a pat on the back!) You'll get a link to this in the week before the race. Note - in order to qualify for prizes, you must submit GPS data along with your time.​

The best part? You can tune in and follow our live webcast of the professional marathon relay the same evening. Get ready for a great show!

What do I get? 

We want to make these events as accessible to the running world as possible and we know that many people want to have a goal race on the calendar but can't afford to pay to enter.

​​

Thus, our races are and always will be free to register, participate, be part of the community, receive a print-at-home race number, have your results posted on our website, and even win awesome prizes!​

​If you'd like any of the "extras" you might be used to at a normal race, like a t-shirt, awesome medal, high quality race number, or other swag, we're selling those for folks who want them.

Awards and Prizes

​REMINDER - you must submit a public GPS link with your result. Times will be calculated based on elapsed time (not moving time).​
