About The Running Bitcoin Challenge
Join Honorary Chair Fran Finney and the Running Bitcoin Challenge Event Committee as we honor legendary cypher punk, Hal Finney.
This 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 - wherever you like in 2023-2024.
From wherever you are, spread the word about Bitcoin, participate in a healthy activity, and feel good about doing your part to defeat ALS!
Now in its second official year, the “Running Bitcoin Challenge” is a virtual/do-it-yourself event available to the bitcoin and fitness community worldwide. We invite you to make history with us as we raise bitcoin awareness, promote fitness, and generate funds to end the hideous disease that took Hal Finney’s life.
Spread the word about bitcoin, support healthy activity for your employees, feel good about doing your part to defeat ALS, and take advantage of this opportunity for company visibility within the bitcoin community, worldwide!
As Hal would do, test your strength, push your limits, and fight ALS with us!
