Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, we were left with two choices: quit or go virtual. We don't quit.
Why participate in virtual Unleashed?
To remind ourselves that we are STILL ALIVE! To build character, connection, and community. We are bigger and stronger than COVID-19 uncertainty. To be bigger, faster, stronger than threats we must do HARD. While a virtual race is not the same as running Stadium Bowl with 500+ other people at the same time, we think we can provide a worthwhile challenge with rewards for your effort. And it's the 10th anniversary of Unleashed which means there is a 10 lap option!
The harm from this global pandemic is incalculable, and rescue animals are among its victims. Unleashed has always been twofold and this year is no different. We want to provide an experience that reminds our participants of who they are at their best while raising critical medical funding for the rescue animals of Kindred Souls Foundation. Like very year, 100% of the net profits are donated to KSF. Your race kit will include a sponsor button picturing a KSF animal who is benefiting from your effort.
How is Unleashed going to work virtually?
Participants can choose to run stairs at home, local stadiums, stairs found in your community, or on a Stair Climber/Stair Master at a gym. There are three race options: 1-Lap = 1628 steps, 2-Lap = 3256 steps, 10-Lap = 16280 steps.
Some Stair Masters only count floors instead of steps. Therefore 1628 steps = 82 floors, 3256 = 164 floors, 16280 steps = 820 floors.
