HOW LONG DOES THE CHALLENGE GO?

The challenge starts on June 29th and goes until October 18th. With 16 weeks to complete all your miles that puts you at 11.5 miles a day!

Do miles on a trainer or a stationary bike count?

Absolutely! With everything from weather to that darn tube going flat again we understand it's not always easy to hit the road or the trails some days.

HOW DO I LOG MY MILES?

You can log your miles through your RunSignup account. For more details please check our Results section of the registration page!

WILL I NEED STRAVA OR MY GPS WATCH TO VERIFY MY MILEAGE?

Nope! You can go to any of your favorite routes, trails, or even around your back yard over and over again as long you know the distance of where you're getting your workout in. This is on the honor system so we're counting on you to stay honest!

IF I REGISTER AFTER THE RACE STARTS DO I GET TO BACKLOG MY MILES FROM THE DAYS I MISSED?

Only mileage completed after you are registered for the race will count towards the goal mileage of the even that you're in.

IS THERE A RELAY OPTION?

No, this challenge is an individual event.

WHEN WILL I GET MY SWAG?

All shirts and medals will be mailed together on a weekly basis shorlty after the challenge starts.
