Who wants some ice cream? The Great Ice Cream Chase is a virtual run, walk, or ride which supports youth programs and scholarships through the HOPE For Youth Foundation as well as locally owned ice cream shops in the Hudson Valley, all while celebrating one of summer’s best traditions - ICE CREAM! Run, walk, or ride where and when it is convenient for you. Submit your time to see how you stack up to the competition. All registrants receive a custom, limited-edition finisher medal and a gift card to one of the partnered ice cream shops of their choice. Gift certificates will be mailed to you. Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Celebrate it this year in style. I scream, you scream, we all scream to participate in a virtual event for ice cream!
Participants in all races will receive a custom medal with the corresponding amount of "scoops" as well as $10 gift card to one of our locally owned, partnered ice cream shops, with the exception of the Kids 1 Mile Little Spoon Sampler and the Kids Ice Cream Truck Chase Challenge which will receive a $5 gift card. All Ziggy Pig Challenge participants will receive TWO $10 gift cards to the locations of their choosing!
A virtual run/walk/ride event is similar to a traditional event except the participant completes it entirely on their own schedule. There is not a required location nor a mandatory time of day in which to complete the event. We hope to challenge participants to get outside to stay active and healthy. With the Great Ice Cream Chase, you'll be supporting the HOPE For Youth Foundation as well as local ice cream shops, all while sharing the love of ice cream!
First choose the distance you'd like to run, walk, or ride. Once you complete your registration, the next step is to conquer the distance you signed up for. There is no time limit that the distance must be covered in, and you can split up the distance between multiple days. The important thing is to complete the distance, stay safe, and have fun! Once finished, simply go online and submit your time to be included in the race results page. If you choose one of the "Challenge" events, you will be able to chart your progress in your own personal challenge results page.
Are you interested in challenging yourself for some ice cream? Let's see how far you can go running/riding this summer virtually from one location to the next on our Ice Cream Trail! Choose the Ice Cream Trail Challenge or the Ziggy Pig Challenge and log your progress in your personal challenge results page we'll create just for you. Your journey "begins" in Westchester and will continue into Putnam and Dutchess where you will "cross" the FDR Mid-Hudson Bridge into Ulster, then travel back down the Hudson River through Orange, ending in Rockland.
