Event Description

We're going Out (of the virtual run season) with a BLAST! We would like to invite you to join us as we go To the MOON in JUNE! 🌏🚀

This will be the ultimate

We are assembling a team of 2,020 "AstRUNut's" who will embark on a month long journey from planet Earth to the Moon. Every mile run,hiked, cycled, swam or briskly walked is fuel for the rocket ship, 238,885 miles total (average of 117 miles per participant for the month of June -assuming 2020 runners).

We're looking for some true blue Ast-RUN-nuts and Booster Bandits (cycle only) to fuel our WillowX Rocket with running, cycling, hiking, walking, kayaking and swimming miles that will cumulatively have to total 238,855  miles (distance from Earth to the Moon) from June 1 to June ?.... every participants miles added together will be the fuel required to push the Willow-X Rocket to the MOON by the end of JUNE! 

There will also be awards/prizes for top distance achievers (running/other) for the month of June. As much as this event is about the "community" we want to encourage and reward our overachievers Details will be included in the pre-event email to all participants..


Custom Shirt- Choose from 1 of 5 styles. 

Custom Car Magnet- Each registered participant should endeavor to accumulate at least 100 "healthy activity" miles to earn the magnet. (Don't forget all miles run, walk, bike can be used- just keep moving!)

HOLOGRAM FINISHER MEDAL- In order for all of us to receive the baddest HOLOGRAM FINISHER MEDAL ever created, we collectively have to reach the milestone of 238,855 miles by the end of June 2020!


It is our mission at Houston Control (aka Willow Running) to make sure we get to the MOON by the end of JUNE.

  • We will be enlisting a team of cyclist to join us for the first 10 days of our journey as Booster Bandits. (Booster Bandits are cyclist only- their mission is to boost the rocket out of the atmosphere and then fall off. 10 days of peddling to reach a minimum of 100 miles per cyclists ).
  • We are also reaching out to our Ultra/Endurance athletes to join our campaign as Captains of WillowX with commitments of 300+ miles for the month of June. We have a few Captains already selected but if you fall into this category (you know who you are) we ask you to reach out to us via email @ before registering.
  • Our goal is to have 2,020 participants squeeze into the WillowX Rocket for our final Virtual Challenge experience for 2020. This number of participants gets us to an average of 117 miles per participant.

We realize that many are currently involved in land based virtual events taking you across States and even the Country. This event is literally out of the World, all of your land miles can be used as fuel to complete our Mission to the MOON in JUNE. Once WillowX lifts off at midnight on June 1, all participants will begin to update their Run Signup Profile page with their daily miles and that will automatically be added to the team totals to fuel the Rocket to the MOON (more on this in a future email).

We ask with respect and deep appreciation for you to share this event with other athletes in your ORBIT-  help us reach the 2,020 number of registrants to assure that our mission is a success! 

We will hold post event packet pickups in Rochester, Syracuse, Ithaca, Binghamton, Auburn, Corning, Goshen, Utica, Watertown, Old Forge and Lake Placid. If you live outside of these designated areas or prefer to have your items shipped, please select the SHIPPING option during registration process.
