We are so excited to bring you the CORVIAN CARDINALS CHALLENGE! The 2021 Corvian Cardinals Challenge is an opportunity to participate in our biggest community event in a safe manner. While we cannot hold all the normal in-person events, due to COVID-19 concerns, we want to offer a way for you to get outside, explore the outdoors and support Corvian Community School. Your registration fee will support Corvian’s mission to help students develop happy, healthy lives well-equipped for the future. We are hopeful this will merely be a one-year tweak and we will be running in-person again next year!
Virtual Race Options
The Cardinal 5K – If you choose this option, you will complete a 5K from wherever you choose during the month of March. Participants will be able to download their bib and a finisher's certificate to have as a keepsake. Results must be submitted by 11:59pm on March 31, 2021.
The Cardinal Challenge - 31 Day / 31 Mile Challenge – If you choose this option, you will complete 31 miles (or more!) during the month of March. While this equates to 1 mile per day, you do not have to distribute your miles evenly; the 31 miles can be conquered however quickly, casually, or sporadically you choose. Participants will be able to download their bib and a finisher's certificate to have as a keepsake. You'll be able to check out the rankings among other individuals. The rankings will be sorted based on miles accumulated. More miles, higher ranking. Results must be submitted by 11:59pm on March 31, 2021.
Build Your Trophy Case
As you move through the Cardinal Challenge, you will be able to unlock various badges as you complete milestones. These will be housed in your virtual trophy case on your results page. Some badges you will get for completing certain distances and some you will get for logging miles on certain days. For example, log miles on St. Patrick’s Day and get a Shamrock Badge. Hopefully, the badges will keep you motivated and sometimes entertained. (Trophy case is not applicable to the Cardinal 5K option.)
For any of the distances, you can log running or walking miles. The miles can be outside or inside (treadmill). When you submit your results, you will be able to select the corresponding activity that you did. All distances will be able to go OVER the goal distance for that challenge and miles can continue to be logged. You are not trapped by the number if you exceed expectations.
All registered participants will receive a race tee. Guarantee your shirt by registering before March 11th at Midnight.
Join any grade level team (K-11th Grade) or create your own! For teams, your miles will add together and create a team accumulation of miles. You will be able to view Team Results and rankings by both individuals on the team and whole teams together. This is a fun way to have some accountability with friends/family and make it a little more interactive.
Tracking/logging miles is super simple. You will simply click on Results on the menu bar, then click the button that says "Submit Virtual Results" and follow the on screen prompts. You can log miles daily or weekly, whatever you choose. (The race web page is: www.jonesracingcompany.com/corviancardinals5k)
If you are on a team, when you are on the Results page you will be able to click on the Team Results button and select your team category (for example, 1st Grade Team) and see the Team Standings.
Your mileage results will be added to our community goal and displayed on the race page. Let's shoot for a community total of 5000 miles!
