Why the I-95 Challenge?
Interstate 95 runs from Key West, Florida to Maine for a total of 1,908 miles and it goes right through the middle of the Kinetic Multisports racing ecosystem. So, we figured just about everyone we race with has a love/hate relationship with this East Coast travel corridor. Plus, we get to brag about a few of our favorite workouts while learning about yours!
All athletes that register by August 15th will receive the following:
-Kinetic I-95 Challenge T-Shirt Hoodie – Super comfy, cotton-blend, long sleeve, hooded T-shirt; a travel and shoulder season essential
-Kinetic I-95 Challenge Tall Cycling Socks – Super soft, poly blend socks; perfect for cycling, trail running and walking
-Kinetic I-95 Challenge Eco-friendly Finishers Coaster – Slap this under a coffee or a cold one; the perfect humble-brag
-Kinetic Multisports Buff – The perfect face covering for kinetic cowboys/cowgirls, triathletes and fit adventurers
-Kinetic Multisports Sticker – Tag your car (or a friends) and let them know that you #GoKinetic
-Kinetic Multisports Swim Cap – Well, what else are we going to do with 20,000 swim caps?

Uploading Mileage & “Awards”
Log your mileage each week to our website and post photos, stories and routes to our Facebook, Instagram and Strava pages.

Times are tough in the non-profit world and we need your help to support our series charities, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. $10 of every Kinetic I-95 Challenge entry fee from July 8 to August 15 will generate a $5 donation to each of these groups to support the work they do. We encourage you to make an additional donation or become a fundraiser during the registration process. Our top 3 fundraisers/donations will each get 3 complimentary entries into any of our 2021 races and our sincere thanks. Do good, get fit, everybody wins!
