Sonic Medal Dash kicks off for a good cause

Sonic always has the need for speed. The blue blur moves faster than is humanly possible. Never fear. We may never be able to beat him, but now we can join him through the Sonic Medal Dash event. Kicking off March 1 and running through December 31, 2022, the virtual run is an officially licensed event with some pretty sweet “victory” swag.

Medal Dash started in 2018 as a way for people across the globe to get together and support a common cause. This year, a portion of the proceeds earned from the Sonic Medal Dash will go the “Feeding America,” a United States based hunger-relief organization.

What is Sonic Medal Dash?

Since 2019, when Sonic Medal Dash first ran upon the virtual radar, over 125,000 joggers, walkers, runners, and gamers have participated in the event. And with the flexibility of distances- 5K, 10K or 13.1K; and time frame, it easy to grab a few friends and doggos, or kitties (they’re welcome too!) and help out.

After registering, participants have until Dec. 31 to complete their chosen distance. It can be done all at once, or in sections. And as this is a virtual event, the location is completely up to you.

Announced earlier this week, the event celebrates your dedication and energy with officially licensed swag. Tee-shirts and tank tops with the logo blazing across the front, finisher medals, other add-on merch are available as part of the sign-up packages starting at $34.95. Pre-orders are open now, and according to the website, going fast, as expected from a Sonic event. Merch is scheduled to ship out starting in April.

A bit nerdy, a bit punk rock princess, and a whole lot of mom, I'm constantly in motion. I have an enthusiasm for gaming and the cultural complexities of entertainment, both past and present. I don’t believe in limiting myself to one kind of genre in books, comics, manga, anime, music or movies. I prefer to seek out hidden gems in panned pieces, uniqueness in the mundane and new outlooks on nuances.
