Any place you want, anywhere in the world!




Join Honorary Chair Fran Finney and the Running Bitcoin Challenge Committee as we honor legendary cypher punk, Hal Finney.

This is THE EVENT that combines Hal Finney's love of running and Bitcoin and is raising funds and awareness to help defeat the hideous disease, ALS, that claimed his life.

You are challenged to run (or walk, roll, or hike) the equivalent of a half marathon -- cumulatively or all at once -- by the end of January 10, 2023. 

Fundraise or self-donate a minimum of $100/630,000 sats by January 10, and you will receive the official 2023 Running Bitcoin Challenge running shirt!

Our TOP 25 fundraisers (sats and USD combined) will also receive a rare Hal Finney collectible, autographed by Fran Finney. 


Spread the word about Bitcoin, participate in a healthy activity, feel good about doing your part to defeat ALS, and start the year off right!  

Anytime from anywhere on the globe: January 1-10, 2023

What: Run (or walk, roll, or hike) Hal's favorite distance -- 21km or 13.1mi -- in either one outing or cumulatively throughout these 10 days, leading up to the anniversary of Hal's famous "Running Bitcoin" tweet. 

How: Participants sign up, spread the word and share progress via their own social media channels, recruit other participants and donors, and receive the official 2023 Running Bitcoin Challenge shirt for a minimum $100/630,000 sats donation and/or funds raised.

Now accepting sats through our BTCPay Server, powered by Voltage. Note: USD donations will appear immediately on our leader board and in our progress thermometer. BTC donations will be figured into totals and updated periodically. Anonymous donors will remain anonymous on the leader board. 

Proceeds from the Running Bitcoin Challenge will provide critical funding for The ALS Association Golden West Chapter's interdependent mission priorities related to essential care services, public policy initiatives, and cutting-edge research.


We've raised $523.07 of our $50,000.00 goal!
