Race to the Moon: A Virtual Race Powered By Strava
June 1 — July 20, 2019
In July 1969, three Americans traveled nearly a quarter million miles to the Moon — all we need you to do is run 50.
The Apollo 11 Moon landing was the collective achievement of four hundred thousand individuals working towards a common goal. To celebrate this shared experience, and to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, we are challenging a new generation to Race to the Moon.
Race to the Moon is a 50-day virtual race on the social fitness app Strava that challenges participants to run 50 miles in 50 days to commemorate the 50 years since Apollo 11. The race starts on June 1, 2019, and ends on July 20, 2019, the 50th anniversary of when humans set foot on the Moon for the first time. Race participants are encouraged to share photos of themselves, connect with other runners across the country, and enter to win exclusive Apollo 50 content and prizes.
