Hedgehog Hustle

January is cold and, for lots of us, its a month with a lack of race.  Trying to beat the January blues, we’ve decided that a little competition is a good thing.  So the Hedgehog Hustle is back!  As with the prior edition of the race, it’s a virtual race, but with a bit of twist — the choice of a progressive half marathon, marathon or 50 miler over the month of January.  

The Hoglet (Progressive Half Marathon)

January 1   9 – 5K (3.1 Miles)January 10 – 16 – 6K (3.73 Miles)January 17 -  23 5K (3.1 Miles)January 24 – 31 – 5K (3.1 Miles)TOTAL DISTANCE = 13.03 miles

The Hedgehog (Progressive Marathon)

January 1 – 9 – 5K (3.1 Miles)January 10 – 16 – 6K (3.73 Miles)January 17 – 23 – 10K (6.2 Miles)January 24 – 31- Half Marathon (13.1 Miles)TOTAL DISTANCE = 26.13 miles

The Boss Hogg (Progressive 50 Miler)

January 1 – 9 – 10K (6.2 Miles)January 10 – 16 – Half Marathon (13.1 Miles)January 16 – 23 – Half Marathon (13.1 Miles)January 24 – 31- 17.6 MilesTOTAL DISTANCE = 50 miles

How does it work? 
For each approximately week long period you run the specified distance at a time and place of your choosing.  You then upload both the time AND a supporting file to RunSignUp.  Using those times and files, we’ll compile results for each individual segment and for the overall challenge.  All runners who complete their chosen challenge will be mailed a Hedgehog Hustle medal.  The top three overall men and women in open and masters categories for each challenge will also receive awards.  

What does it cost? 
Early registration is $20.   After November 1 the price goes up to $25.  

What else do I get?
Community is really, really important to us.  In addition to race results, medals, fun raffles, and awards for the top five men and women in each race category, you’ll be given access to free training plans through Training Peaks to help you step up in distance or, if you’re a veteran, get faster; you will be invited to a Hedgehog Hustle Facebook group to share your training and racing and be able to have questions answered by Sonic Endurance coaches and you’ll be able to participate in fun games and challenges throughout the months of December and January.
