ALS Golden West Running Bitcoin Challenge

Anytime in 2024! | Any place you want, anywhere in the world!

The Running Bitcoin Challenge is THE EVENT that combines Hal Finney's love of running and Bitcoin and is raising funds and awareness to help defeat ALS, which claimed his life.  

You are challenged to run (or walk, roll, or hike) the equivalent of a half marathon - cumulatively or all at once - whenever you like in 2024.

From wherever you are, spread the word about Bitcoin, participate in a healthy activity, and feel good about doing your part to defeat ALS.

Video Message from Honorary Event Chair, Fran Finney, coming soon!

Raise Additional BTC, sats, or USD to Earn Cool Fundraising Incentives!

What: From wherever you are, run (or walk, roll, or hike) Hal's favorite distance - 21km or 13.1 mi - in either one outing or cumulatively.

How: Participants sign up, spread the word and share progress via their own social media channels, and recruit other participants and donors.

Incentives: Fundraise for the chance to earn a Fran Finney-autographed running shirt and additional swag from the Running Bitcoin Challenge and ALS Golden West.

Note: USD donations will appear immediately on our leaderboard and in our progress thermometer. BTC donations will be figured into totals and updated periodically. Anonymous donors will remain anonymous on the leaderboard.
