  • Week of April 20-26

    On the third Monday of every April, “Marathon Monday”, the iconic Boston Marathon is run on the 26.2-mile course from Hopkinton to Boylston Street. This year for the first time in the Marathon's long history, the race will be run in the Fall. But April 20th, the original date for the race, is still firmly cemented in many runners' memories and will not be forgotten.  To help celebrate and honor the Boston Marathon, won't you join Sole Sports & Rabbit and compete in our Heartbreak Hill Virtual Challenge?  This will take place on Monday, April 20th.
    Challenge Directions:

    1. Join the both Sole Sports and rabbit STRAVA groups and upload your run:

    3. On your run, you must include at least a half mile hill with 91+ feet of vertical gain (the approximate distance and vertical gain of Heartbreak Hill). You can absolutely run more vert than this!

    4. Post a picture of yourself at the top of your "Heartbreak Hill" on Instagram, tag @runinrabbit, @solesports and use the hashtags, #BOSTONrabbit  #SolesUnite

    Sole Sports will select two winners from our Sole Sports Strava page, one male and one female.  The winners will receive a pair of shorts from rabbit’s yet-to-be-released CALI VIBES collection. 

    In ADDITION to our two Sole Sports winners, 26 winners across the US will be selected by rabbit to win CALI VIBES shorts.

    2. Best outfit, and
    3. Most inspiring.
