No Mask Marathon - Virtual Challenge

Arlington, WA

Join the No Mask Marathon - Virtual Challenge! Run 26.2 Miles in the month of April - April 3rd, 2023 marks a HUGE day in history - the end of the remaining PNW mask mandates - the end of "surviving" and the beginning of THRIVING again! NO MORE mask mandates for healthcare facilities ?? It's time to CELEBRATE that we're actually living to see this day with the No Mask Marathon!

The struggles of healthcare workers and those struggling from the effects of the pandemic and masking are not over yet, though. We are a less healthy population in almost every way right now - depression, anxiety, sensory issues, high blood pressure, and stokes are all on the rise post-pandemic, just to name a few. Did you know 30 minutes of movement 4x/week is a top way to combat every single one of these dis-eases?

The birth of the No Mask Marathon is quite the story - early on in the pandemic, two friends literally thought "what the heck is happening?!" when stories were coming out of runners running in masks. We all know it's hard enough to breathe WITHOUT a mask on when you're running.. this cannot possibly be good for you?! It was then they made their very own "No Mask Marathon" t-shirts, ran 26.2 miles, and were all ready to host a No Mask Marathon in person to fight this craziness.. that was right before all of the social pressure happened around masks and things got real serious. 

But the past is the past, so where are we now?

The NO MASK MARATHON combats this and works towards a healthier YOU and a healthier community in 3 ways: 

1.Get your body moving! Run 26.2 miles between April 3rd and May 3rd 2023 in honor of healthcare workers and those struggling from the aftermath of the covid pandemic - we promise 26.2 miles won’t suck as much as the mask mandate did! 

  1. You’re raising awareness for those who are struggling. Tell your #nomaskmarathonstory on social media and tell the world about your pandemic story. Were you a healthcare worker? Are you struggling with a sensory or psychosomatic disorder after masking? Long-haulers?  Is your anxiety worse than it used to be? Do you know somebody else who is? Are you running more these days to try to burn off the crazy that was the covid-19 pandemic? You’d be surprised just how powerful YOUR story could be - it might prompt those you love to share their own struggles and help them realize they are not alone. 

  1. Every dollar raised with the No Mask Marathon will go DIRECTLY into building a healthier community again through the partners of the Arlington Runners Club. Together, we can create a world where children and adults alike KNOW they were designed to have abundant health! 

Your registration includes the one-of-a-kind No Mask Marathon medal to commemorate this monumental era of history, a No Mask Marathon t-shirt, and a SWAG BAG of running goods from our sponsors! See you on the trails! ??‍??
