Participants will receive a custom hat, medal (or medals depending on how many levels of the challenge you sign up for), a virtual race bib, mini cowbell (because it’s MO’ Cowbell Marathon), MO’ Cowbell face mask and an individual finisher line banner. That’s right, there’s a good chance that you’ve never ran through the race tape, but this year, everyone will!
While we believe St. Charles County has some pretty great parks and trails, you are welcome to complete your miles anywhere! Yes, we even have a runner in the UK who is running The Chuck Challenge!
While so much planning and regrouping went into a potential “stripped down” version of what MO’ Cowbell Marathon usually is, it truly came down to a safety concern for our runners. Among many other factors, we were not able to secure an ExMO’ or Packet pick up location, the level of expert medical training we have come to require in the past or adequate volume of volunteers. Ultimately, we have worked hard each year to bring our runners a top notch experience and didn’t want anything short of that.
Certainly! Registration for the MO’ Cowbell 2020 Chuck Challenge is open until October 3rd at 11:59 pm.
Not this year but we do encourage you to find some running buddies and get out there (socially distanced, of course).
No, not at all! A lot of people are simply walking to pass the time and get daily exercise.
He chose The Full Chuck, of course! Look for his race route photos in our Facebook Group or on Instagram.
If you decide to change your race distance after you registered, just go into your RunSignup profile and transfer to the next Chuck Challenge level you want to complete. Additional costs will be applied.
Yes. This is still MO’ Cowbell after all!
VIP and Mail Packet Option will be refunded to each runner who added either to their 2020 registration.
A social distanced medal, hat and additional swag pick up is planned for;
10.24.20 | 10 am – 2 pm @ MO’ Cowbell Headquarters in St. Charles
10.31.20 | 10 am – 2 pm @ Big River Running Store in West County
More info on these dates to come!
Otherwise, remaining packets will be mailed out starting November 1, 2020.
No worries! If you do not have a GPS watch, we would recommend using MapMyRun or a similar app that allows you to export your data. To export your data from MapMyRun:
Nope! In fact, you can combine as many runs as you need to fulfill the distance(s) you want to complete to reach your level of Chuck. That is the great part of running The Chuck Challenge virtually.
We are saving the 10-year anniversary celebration and all its components for the next time we can meet for a live race. If you have pre-ordered a hoodie or tech shirt, you will be refunded and have an opportunity to order it again next year.
You can begin to enter the miles ran into your RunSignup profile today, and you have until December 31, 2020, to complete them all. Remember, you don’t need to run the total distance of your Chuck Challenge at once. So if you plan to break your challenge into shorter distances, make sure you give yourself enough time.
Though we hope you consider some level of Chuck Challenge, you can process a refund through your individual RunSignUp account.
