Ride Across America

Is one bike ever enough???  At Full Send Racing we would say NO!  We appreciate that all bikes and all bike miles are not created equal.   We have created multiple bike categories so you can track how many miles you log on each type of bike and also where you stand against similar riders. 

When you log your miles you can select one of the following categories:  

Road/Tri Bike Miles (these are open road miles)

Bike Trainer Miles (these are the miles you log on your trainer or smart trainer - bless your hearts...this is not a strength of the Full Send Team)

Peloton Miles (as the name would imply - these are the miles you log on your Peloton bike.  Spin Class miles would fall in this category)

Mountain/Fat/Gravel Miles (As you might imagine...these are the miles defined by FUN in the woods, trail, snow or sand...YES..the Full Send Team might be partial to this type of miles!)

Commuter Miles (Thank you for being eco-friendly and using your bike for transportation when it is a safe option) 

You may log multiple types of miles each day and the miles will be combined in your individual and team total. 

We realize that we didn't include every bike - feel free to email us if you are not sure which category to use for logging or use your best judgment.  

Run Across America


We realize that running 2500 miles across the USA might be a pretty big challenge so we have added a relay team option.  You may combine your running miles with up to 10 friends.  Gather your team and pick how much of the USA your team would like to cover this summer.   The Relay Across the USA is great for option for friends, family, and your running squad.  Since this is a virtual event you don't even have to live in a smelly van together as you run across the country. 


FREESTYLE Across America

Make your way across the country logging any type of exercise miles.  Run, Walk, Hike, Bike, Swim, Paddle or convert gym/yoga etc. to miles using our exercise conversion chart.  Exercise Conversation Chart.   

Pick Your Swag

One of the biggest traditions surrounding Coast to Coast is the celebration toast when you reach the Pacific!  

Have enough T-shirts to last a lifetime?  Or maybe you can't have enough great T-shirts?  We realize every participant is unique and different and instead of including a T-shirt with your registration we have lowered our registration fee and given you the option to pick your swag.  T-shirts, Tanks, Hoodies, beach towels and pint glasses.   Add on as much or as little swag as you would like during registration.  This is just a small sample of the options you have to pick from during registration.   One of the biggest traditions surrounding Coast to Coast is the celebration toast when you reach the Pacific!  You may want to purchase your pint glass now to have on hand when you finish!  You may also add additional swag after registration at the Live Full Send Store

We will be shipping swag throughout the summer.  All participants will receive their medal and swag by Labor Day. 



Have More Fun with Friends

We know exercising with friends is always more fun!  Gather your friends and family and take on the Coast to Coast Challenge together.   Share your referral link and earn swag bucks to spend in the Live Full Send Store. 

You may also want to consider forming a Relay Team or Group

A Relay Team is composed of 2-10 people.   You will combine your mileage to make your way across the country.  (Example -  2500 miles divided by 10 runners - each runner will log 250 miles.)

A Group is composed of an unlimited number of people.  Groups are all about fun, motivation, and encouragement.  You will not combine your mileage as a group.  Your group can span across challenges and events.  


Kiddos and Fur Babies

We love Kiddos and Fur Babies and would love for them to join us for the Coast to Coast Challenge.  All Kids and Fur Babies under the age of 12 can register for $25.  Discount automatically taken at checkout.  If your puppy is over worries...just adjust their age accordingly.   Fur Babies will get a dog award instead of a medal.  If you are registering a fur baby please put Dog/Cat/Hamster etc. as a part of your animal's name.  Ex.  Maverick (Dog) Griffin.

What is FULL SEND?  FULL SEND is a Lifestyle - it is an attitude.  FULL SEND is 110% Committed. All Out. No Take Backs. No Do Overs. Full Send is an active lifestyle and apparel brand.  We believe in being fully committed and engaged in all we do. Full Send Racing was founded in May 2020 by Chad Towne and Renee Griffin.  While the racing industry was being closed down as a result of Covid 19, Chad and Renee figured out how to weave together their experience in the racing industry, passion for endurance sports and desire to help nonprofits to create FULL SEND RACING. We work hard and we play hard and we take this same attitude in every event and every piece of apparel we create.

RACE FULL SEND - Chad and Renee are both endurance athletes who have a background in race event timing and production.   Our goal was to take the things we valued most in the endurance industry and bring them to our athletes.    In our first six months as a company we have worked with over 10,000 athletes and we recognize each athlete comes to the start line with different skills,  talents, experience, and goals.  Our job is to provide each athlete with the highest quality experience and motivate you to move out of the comfort of the start line, push through the miles of the race (no matter the distance), and celebrate you at the finish line.   Check out all our events at Race Full Send

LIVE FULL SEND -  Chad and Renee believe that your accomplishments should be celebrated with the highest quality gear.  We work closely with our athletes and clients to thoughtfully create gear through the lens of function, style, and practicality.   All apparel is designed and printed by small businesses in Wilmington NC. 

GIVE FULL SEND - One of the driving forces behind Full Send Racing is to make a positive difference in our community.   Since the creation of Full Send Racing in May 2020 we have been fortunate to work with 13 nonprofits,  We have helped these nonprofits raise over $110,000.   For our current projects check out Give Full Send.
