Mission Overview

Challengers are you ready to accept the Mission? This is your guide to #Race The Moon.

Participants known as Challengers will chase down the Moon by running, riding, swimming wheeling or walking 1.5 million miles,(yes we know its 1.49 million miles), before the Moon completes its full orbit of the Earth in a Sidereal month.

Who Can Enter?

Everyone is invited to be part of our (virtual) race as we all unite to #RaceTheMoon. We would love each and everyone of you to be a Challenger in this epic mission.

Your Mission

#RACETHEMOON #YourRaceYourPace

As a #RaceTheMoon Challenger you are free to set your own mission objective, by land or sea, from 100 metres to 100 miles or more. What is unique is that all your efforts will go towards our Mission target of 1.5 million miles, which you can follow via the @RaceTheMoonHQ Map.

Don’t Panic! You will be working with a global team of Challengers so work towards your objective.
