NYCRUNS 8 Crazy Nights Challenge  

Anywhere You Like


Oy Vey 5K? Chanukah Chalf Marathon?  It's entirely up to you as long as you run 8 consecutive days this December to earn your gelt.   In the brilliant words of Adam Sandler, it's "so much funnukah to celebrate Chanukah!"  We couldn't agree more.

You can start your streak as early as December 1st or as late as December 24th, but you must run or walk at least 1 mile daily for 8 days in a row during the month of December.


Most importantly, have fun.

You can run or walk anywhere you want, including a treadmill. You may also choose to bike your miles. You can track your miles any way you want and with any device you want.

Once you've run, you'll submit your miles through  our new Run This One results system which is accessible to registered runners via their dashboard. You can automatically sync via MapMyRun and Garmin Connect, or you can runs manually of course.

It’s all on the honor system. We trust you.


All runners receive a wine stopper medal and a running gaiter.

If you would like a long sleeved technical shirt that's an option you can add at checkout.

There is no fee for domestic shipping. International shipping will cost an additional $40.00. We will do everything we can to get items delivered on time, but we cannot guarantee this for international shipping.  Shipping will being in November. If you register after December 21st, your package will ship in January.
