The Kids' Holiday Challenge allows kids (aged 16 and under) to participate at 50,000 metres.
Adaptive athletes can choose to participate at the 50k, 100k, or 200k levels.

Holiday Challenge Charities
There's also a charitable giving aspect to the Holiday Challenge. Here's how it works: For every person who rows, skis or rides 100k during the challenge, Concept2 will donate $.02 per kilometre (1000 metres) to your choice of this year's charities. Once you get beyond 100k, we'll donate $.04 per additional kilometre.
In order for your metres to count, however, you must choose a charity from the front page of your Logbook (or select "Let Concept2 Choose" if you don't have a preference). For kids and adaptive participants, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50k. Note: BikeErg metres count for half the distance when calculating your Holiday Challenge metres and any related donation.
