THE CHALLENGE SPECIFICS
THE MILES: You and/or your team will choose which goal you'd like to complete in 8 weeks or less ~ 100, 250 or 500 miles. You do not need to run or walk everyday, you can choose your times, days and locations to complete your miles. If you're also doing the 2021 Challenge, these miles will count toward both challenges.
TEAMS: If you'd like to complete this with your family or friends, you can create a team of up to 4 people! You can name your team anything you'd like. The mileage tracking system will keep track of your team's total miles and time. Each team member must register and will receive their own Medal and Goods in the mail. Your miles will be DIVIDED UP to complete the goal!
ACTIVITIES FOR MILEAGE: You can choose to run, walk and/or hike this challenge. Ellipticals and treadmills are also approved for this challenge.
SHIPPING: FREE shipping for USA orders. Once your package is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number. Packages will be shipped in February 2021 or earlier. We recommend that you do not open package until you complete the challenge.
TRACKING/RESULTS: For tracking your distance and time, you can use whatever app or system that works best for you (Garmin, MapMyRun, Strava, etc). Once you register, you'll be able to MANUALLY log all of your miles through your RunSignUp account until you complete the challenge. We'll track your progress and you can see how all the other participants are doing as well. Leaderboard will be based on distance, not pace! This is about endurance, not speed. To keep it flexible for all of the participants, we are not requiring you to sync or upload your .FIT or GPX files. Your mileage entries will be manual and you can use whatever tracking or fitness app you'd like. Upon completion, you may print your Certificate and open your Medal package!
