WHAT IS A CUMULATIVE CHALLENGE?

A cumulative challenge allows participants to tally their total miles over a designated period of time. Reach your goal distance in a single day, with one run and one bike ride, or break up the miles over multiple days and multiple workouts. Long rides or short workouts, a 5k or 10k, every bike and run during the two-week virtual challenge counts toward your cumulative total.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

You can complete the #TriWeek Virtual Challenge presented by TOWER 26 inside on a stationary bike and a treadmill, or outside. No matter the distance of your workout, every bike and run during the two-week virtual challenge counts toward your cumulative total. That’s the beauty of a cumulative race!
