Get Ready… The Tour de FIT Returns Feb. 18th!
Challenge yourself … one medal at a time.
The Tour de FIT is back … and better than ever. With four ACoP races on our schedule between now and July, there are four great medals to earn at each event. Should you choose to participate in all four events, the result will be four medals that interlock into a fantastic display of your commitment to stay fit – one giant medal.
We hope that you will join us this year for the Tour and challenge yourself by setting fitness goals throughout the entire year. We will unveil the medals for the second half of the tour in early summer.
If you plan to take part in the Tour, please be sure to register early for each event to secure your spot/medal. Medal quantities are limited.
What Events Does it Include?
The first half of the Tour de FIT includes four events:
- Davis Stampede, Feb. 18
- Lucky Run, Mar. 24
- Serotonin Surge Charities Race for the Clinics, May 20
- Davis Moonlight Race, July 7
How Does it Work?
Four easy steps:
- Commit! Register for each of the above four races
- Opt-In for the medals. Be sure to ‘add on’ a medal for the Stampede*, Race for the Clinics and the Moonlight Run*. Do not wait until the last minute, quantities are limited!
- Do your thing on race day. Finish each of the four events and collect your medal
- Bask in the awesomeness of your achievement. Put all four medals together in July and admire the token of your hard work.
* Davis Stampede and Davis Moonlight Run: a finisher medal is included with the half marathon entry, but not the 5K/10K or kids run. For entrants in these categories, be sure to ‘add-on’ a medal to your entry.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need to register for the Tour de FIT to participate?
A: No. There is no separate registration necessary. Just be sure to register for each of the four events and opt-in to the medal, if needed.
Q: I am unclear – which medal from the Davis Stampede will fit into the giant medal?
A: Both! The half marathon finisher medal (included in the half marathon entry fee) will fit into the giant medal, if you collect medals from all four races. The optional medal (designed for 5K, 10K and Kids Run entrants) will also fit into the giant medal. Both medals are the same size. The optional medal is an additional $5.00, and quantities are limited, so please do not wait until the last minute.
Q: I can’t make one of the races, but still want to participate. Suggestions?
A: No problem. We offer a virtual option for each of the events. Again, be sure to opt-in for the medal (except for the Lucky Run, where it’s included) and we will mail you your bib and t-shirt.
Q: Can I mix and match distances?
A: Absolutely. Even kids can take part.
Q: I am already registered for the Davis Stampede 5K (or 10K), and didn’t select the opt-in medal at the time of registration, but I’d like to add it on now. Is that possible?
A: Yes. Use the link to ‘log in to your account’ in your confirmation email from the Davis Stampede, navigate to your entry, and by managing your ‘add-ons’, you can add on the medal and pay for it online.
Q: Where do we pick up optional medals at the event?
A: At the Davis Stampede, there will be a separate medal tent labeled “Participant medal pick up” at which you can pick up your medal.
Q: Will the age group award winner medals also fit into the giant medal?
A: No, the age group award winner medals are a different medal and not related to the Tour de FIT.
Q: I don’t understand the four medals.
A: The four medals, when laid together, interlock with the yellow and black pieces of road, much like a puzzle, to form an 8″ wide medal.
Q: Can I participate in all four events virtually?
A: You can if that is what works best for your schedule.
Q: What events will be included in the Fall Tour de FIT?
A: We will announce this in July, 2018.
Q: Do athletes who complete all four events receive anything else in addition?
A: First, congrats on planning on participating in all four events! The four medals will be symbolic of your achievement, and bragging rights forever. Fit all four medals together to form the giant medal. But to answer your question, no, there will not be any additional items distributed.
