Run through an incredible decade of music, earning rewards and uncovering milestones along the way.

Grab your favorite pair of bell-bottoms, plug in that lava lamp, and tie-dye those t-shirts. We'll bring the soundtrack. The 1960s music edition of Run Through History is a three-month virtual adventure. The music starts October 1, 2020. Each mile you run (or walk, if that's more your style!) represents one week in 1960s music history. So if a few weeks go by and you've logged a total of 20 miles, you've traveled 20 weeks into the year 1960.

Hit at least 523 miles by December 31 to earn a gold medal, 275 for silver, and 125 for bronze.

The journey is better together. That’s why we’ll also reward you with $5.00 back on your entry fee if you refer someone else to this event!

Features

Badges

Each time you reach a musical historical event, you'll be awarded a shiny new badge. We have 30 virtual badges for you to collect on your musical journey. Badges have a design and description that matches the event. Some even include links to some great 60s jams across different genres. You won't know which music milestone or badge comes next, so you'll just have to keep running to uncover them all! 😊

Medal

In addition to earning badges when you reach historical milestones, every so often you'll also achieve a new medal! Hit at least 523 miles by December 31 to earn a gold medal, 275 for silver, and 125 for bronze.🏅 The more you run, the cooler the medal you receive at the end of the year will be!

Community

All participants are encouraged to follow the official Facebook page of the Run Through History series and join the Trivium Racing Virtual Community. Both of these forums are great resources for encouragement, accountability, and sharing your favorite 1960s tunes!

Competition Platform

We'll give you access to our own online platform for tracking your progress through the end of the year. You can see how many miles you've logged over time, the badges you've collected, and the medal you've earned as a result. On our leaderboard, you'll also be able to see how your mileage compares to others in your gender and age group.

What Runners Are Saying About Trivium Racing Events

I almost feel like this challenge was designed specifically for me.
I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I enjoyed this virtual race! It was fun tracking my miles and seeing what milestone I would reach next. Thanks for setting this up and I hope everyone running finishes strong.
I'm not much of a virtual racer, but keep coming with events like this and I'm a sucker!
This sounds like a great idea and a way to actually get me motivated to get out there and exercise.
I'm in!
I'm going to walk through history; I'll have more time to absorb it all.

FAQ

How much does it cost?

It costs only 💥$40💥 for a full three months of exercising, earning, sharing and achieving.

Can I refer a friend?

Absolutely! When you register, you’ll receive a unique referral code. Every time a friend or family member uses that code to sign up, you’ll receive $5.00 back on your entry fee.

What do the medals look like? 🏅

We had way too much fun designing our electric guitar medals. (Thankfully Jimi Hendrix didn't burn these on stage.)

Do I get a shirt? 👕

Women's and men's heather poly tech shirts are available to purchase when you register for the event. Shirts will ship out at the same time as medals. They'll be delivered to your doorstep at the end of the year.

What if I want to walk?
No problem! Walking through history will be just as fun as running through it. Logging your miles, getting badges, and earning medals works exactly the same way.
How do I record my miles?
Participants will gain access to our app starting October 1. Every time you complete a run, enter the date and distance on the "Add a Run" page to record it. We're on the honor system around here, so please try to estimate the distance you ran accurately.

How do I earn badges? ⭐️

When you've racked up enough miles to pass a music milestone, you'll be sent to a "Congratulations!" page with your shiny new badge and its description. You can always view your badge collection on the Timeline page of the app as a reminder that you're making progress and your hard work is reaping rewards.

How do I earn medals? 🏅

Medals are earned the same way badges are – just log the miles you've run, and you'll be presented with a new medal when you've hit enough total miles to achieve one. It's kind of like leveling-up in a video game (though we're speaking from the 60s, and those aren't mainstream yet). On the Timeline page of our app, you can see how many miles are left until you earn the next one. You'll receive one real, physical medal delivered to your doorstep at the end of the year. Hit at least 523 miles by December 31 to earn a gold medal, 275 for silver, and 125 for bronze.

Do I ever have to go anywhere to pick up my badge or medal?
Nope! The badges are purely digital, so you can earn, collect, and share them online. Your medal will be mailed to you at the end of the event.
Can I only log my miles on the day I run them?
Miles for any date can be logged at any time. Just make sure you remember which runs you did on which days.
Can I log the miles I walk around work/home or miles I bike?
We're asking athletes to only log “workout miles” that they've run or walked. If you are tracking the cumulative distance you walk while at work/home/other using a Fitbit or similar device, please do not log those miles. Please don't log biking miles either. On the other hand, if you do a 4-mile walk/jog/run workout, feel free to log all of those miles.
Can I register once October 1, 2020 has passed?
Absolutely! We recommend registering early so you can get to the fun stuff right away. However, you can register after the event has begun and begin at any time.
How can I chat with others doing the event?
