EarthCache Virtual 5K

We are all about helping fellow EarthCachers enjoy the great outdoors. We have a special Virtual 5km run in which you can participate as an individual or team. Run or walk (or bike, roll, swim--any human-powered method is great!) a 5km (3.1 miles) path starting at OR ending at an active EarthCache on any of the days over which the run is being held (Friday 3 October through till Monday 13 October 2014). Everyone who completes the run and uploads a photo will be sent an icon via email that you can display on your caching pages or website. Review the guidelines and sign-up online.

  From August 1 – 31, Earn the 7 Souvenirs of August! "Traditional geocaches are the delicious bread and butter of geocaching. You look it up, go to the coordinates and — Boom! It's there. Everyone high fives and it's on to the next one. This August, your mission is to explore more of the geocaching universe. Find specific geocache types and earn six unique souvenirs for your geocaching profile. Not sure which geocache type to find first? Take the quiz and discover your geocaching personality. Once you earn all six, you’ll be among the super-cachers that unlock a special seventh souvenir."
