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.
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! 😊
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!
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.

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.

How do I record my miles?
How do I earn badges? ⭐️
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?
Can I only log my miles on the day I run them?
Can I log the miles I walk around work/home or miles I bike?
Can I register once October 1, 2020 has passed?
How can I chat with others doing the event?
