Whether you're conquering the hills from the comfort of your local trails or turning your home into a summit-worthy challenge zone, Raised By Rams is your ticket to connect with like-minded adventurers. This is more than just a challenge; it's a chance to elevate your running experience, make memories, and rediscover the joy of conquering heights.

Welcoming treadmills, this category allows participants to maximize grade and climb in place while still integrating outdoor features.

Uploading Your Results- Best Practices

Entering your results into the Run Signup dashboard is a very user friendly process.  The easiest way is to manually enter your run time, distance, and vert in the Run Signup results portal.  You should also be able to upload a .tcx file into the dashboard as well, however different platforms will read the file differently which may cause you to lose vert.  To ensure fairness and fun-ness please do your best to follow the best practices listed below.

Please enter your activities frequently.  In order to get the most out of this experience, and to see your spot on the race leaderboard, we encourage you to enter your results every day. 

Keep evidence of your activity.  If you want to be considered for any awards during this event, you must have proof of your activity.  This can be as simple as sharing your Strava activity links for your runs, or taking a photo of your treadmill screen if you are running indoors. We will reach out to you if we need to see evidence of your activity.  Otherwise- we are operating on an honors system-- so be honest :)

ALL RESULTS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 11:59p Arizona Time on March 24, 2024.  Please get your results submitted early.  If you are having any tech issues at any point during the event please reach out to me.  If you don't have your results submitted into the Run Signup Portal by 11:59 p.m. on March 24th, those results will not count. No exceptions.
