Join the first-ever virtual
863 STRONG and 813 STRONG
26.2 Challenge!


Hello, 863 and 813!

Experts say the best way to build immunity, cope with stress and maintain overall wellness is to EXERCISE! During this challenging time, it’s important for all of us to stay active and healthy; especially for our emotional well-being. We (FITniche Running & Fitness and Central Florida’s Polk County Sports Marketing) are challenging YOU to join the first-ever Virtual 863 STRONG and 813 STRONG – 26.2 Challenge!

In the spirit of health and wellness, the challenge is to complete the total distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) by:

  • walking
  • running
  • cycling
  • rollerblading
  • swimming
  • or other methods over the next 30 days…

You choose your distance and pace and keep track of your miles. Complete the challenge your way…by getting outside or keep it indoors on a treadmill or stationary bike. The point is to keep moving and stay healthy – also, remember to follow the latest CDC local and state guidelines.

The registration fee is $26.20. To register, simply click on one of the buttons for your county and complete the registration process. Once you’ve registered (before May 14) and accepted the challenge, keep it going by sharing this video (813 video and 863 video) and inviting others to join – remember, you have 30 days…so start TODAY and stay active!

All registered participants will receive their registration fee back in the form of a $26.20 coupon to FITniche physical stores*, official 863 or 813 STRONG women’s & men’s specific tech shirt (locally printed), participant medal, printable bib and log sheet, AND opportunities to win prize packages and giveaways from local sponsors!

We encourage you to share your experience in a short video, a map of your workout, or even a selfie on social media and the RunShine Project FB Page; using the hashtags…#863STRONG, #813STRONG, #FITnicheFL, #863MarathonChallenge, #813MarathonChallenge #keep863healthy and/or #keep813healthy.

We can’t wait to celebrate your accomplishment with YOU!

Remember to stay safe, healthy and active. We will get through this TOGETHER – we are 863 STRONG and 813 STRONG!
