What our participants are saying

For four years now I have thoroughly enjoyed every ounce of effort your entire team has put into RTY!  What an amazing concept all 7 members of our two teams have shared with many between the Amerithon and all the RTYs!

Kelly Rogers, 4-year participant

Love your staff and your challenges! I have done several long distance challenges from various providers and you guys definitely run yours the best and have the best swag! So cheers to you all! And thanks for providing a fun motivation to keep people moving!

Laura East, 3-year participant

I started the Run the Year and Amerithon in January after my wife and I decided to loose some weight, and you guys have been a big part of helping us keep active and moving…Thanks again for being such a great company and doing such a good job taking care of us!

How does a team work?

You can divide the miles however you want! Each team member registers individually, then you form your team inside our online tracker.

The tracker allows you to log miles individually AND as a team!

This graphic gives you an example of the average miles needed by each person, depending on the size of your team.

  • Tell me about the tracker!

    Lightweight online mileage tracker.

    Add it to your phone and it works just like an app. No downloads required!

    - Easily log your miles on our web-based online tracker.

    - Access the tracker from your phone, tablet, or computer.

    - Follow your progress, your team’s progress, and your friends’ progress.

    - Sync with Garmin, Fitbit, Strava, and Apple Health for even easier mileage logging.

  • Tell me about teams!

    You can do this challenge "Solo" AND be on a team at the same time! The mileage tracker will keep track of your personal journey as well as a team of up to 8 people.  Finish the challenge with your team and then keep going to finish it solo.

    Check out this video to see how teams are formed: Amerithon Team Formation

    Here are the steps to create your team:

    1. Every member of the team needs to register individually.

    2. Choose a "Fearless Leader" for your team! The Fearless Leader needs to know every team member’s info, including name and email address.

    3. Once everyone is registered, the Fearless Leader creates the team within the tracker:

    The tracker will keep track of your individual miles as well as your team’s miles. You can only be on one team at a time in the tracker. It’s very easy to switch to a new team, but once you leave a team, all of your miles will leave with you.

    And nope — the 3,521 miles don’t have to be split evenly between teammates. You can divide them up however you want!

  • Tell me about the swag!

    You would not believe the swag that comes with this challenge! Instead of telling you about it, just watch this!
