It’s that time of year –

To sign up for your #Earthathon relay team!

Last year on Twitter I noticed a lot of runners using the hashtag #earthathon with some other name after.  When I searched, I realized they were running the earthathon relay.

On twitter you share your runs in miles or kilometers and tweet them to #earthathon

The goal?  For earthathon miles to add up to running the circumference of the Earth.  25,000 miles.

Now, there are ten teams competing to complete 25,000 miles first.  After they finish, they then help other teams to complete their 25,000 miles.  By the end of 2017, the goal of the ten teams is to have run 250,000 miles.

How awesome is that?

Let me tell you something else – there is a LOT of love on Twitter for runners.  If you run one mile in one hour or ten miles in one hour, you will have a cheering squad, tweeting you praise and well wishes.  The Twitter runner group is one exceptional group of people.  FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!  All working together to get out there and run!

I have a huge internal drive to run.  Running the Earthathon relay, supporting other runners and receiving their support gives me that extra added motivation to go the extra mile.

SO COME JOIN EARTHATHON!!  It’s free.  

JOIN A TEAM!!  There are ten to choose from – they include:

#HeForSheRunners

#HeForSheRunners is a derivative of the #HeForShe solidarity movement for #GenderEquality. First we run a lap around the Earth, 25,000-miles…then we continue to 250,000-miles. Are you ready to commit to this challenge called #earthathon?
