Run New York Virtual Marathon Major

The 8 x 8 challenge can be completed in a team of 8 or on your own. You need to complete 3.275 miles (5.27km) every day for 8 days to complete this individually. In a team, you are splitting the burden amongst friends or work colleagues and the challenge to record an official time is to submit all of your times on the same day (we do accept times on different days for your medals but your times will be recorded as unofficial).   By submitting your 8 x 3.275 miles (5.27 Km), you will amass your marathon distance and the runners portal will calculate your marathon time rewarding you with the Run New York Silver medal.
