How to Rally Around XTERRA Planet
Join the XTERRA Tribe as we collectively circumnavigate planet earth in true XTERRA human-powered style over 30-days.
Over the past several months all of us have been stuck at home more than we’d have liked. It’s made the world outside of our daily lives seem distant and disconnected. XTERRA has always been about bringing people together to celebrate the outdoors and the world around us. This Challenge will help us make the world around us seem a little smaller by making our way all the way around it and raising funds to fight COVID-19 where it is needed most.
The earth is 40,075 km around, and with your help, our Tribe will make its way around it — perhaps even more than once! It’s free to enter, and anyone can sign-up, participate and contribute to this global, virtual challenge at any time during the 30-day period.
You can use any means you desire, as long as it is human-powered. When you log your kilometers, they will contribute to our collective total and to our joint progress around the XTERRA Planet.
The Challenge will support GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund, to assist communities around the world in their efforts to stop the COVID-19 pandemic. You are invited to contribute by donating to the XTERRA Foundation during the registration process. The first $5,000 in donations will be matched by XTERRA.
Here’s how it works:
1. The Challenge: The Challenge spans 30-days, beginning July 15 and ending August 13, 2020. You can enter and contribute at any time within the 30-days.
