FAQ

Q: Do I have to be in a certain city/state to do this event?
A: No, anyone can do this event wherever you are, on your time! This is great for families to stay active together, even if you don't live close by.

Q: How do I record my miles? 
A: You will be logging your miles directly into the RunSignUp System.  You will get an email with your unique link and instructions for you to upload directly. In case you don't get the email you can find your unique page following these steps:  You can do it daily or once a week.

Q: Do I have to run or can I walk?
A: For this challenge any movement will count! You can Run, Walk, Hike, Bike, Swim, (or even Crawl if you have to!) Any way you can get the miles. It's your challenge, as long as you are purposefully moving and logging miles, it counts. It is YOUR challenge but we do ask that you not log miles that are earned with your normal step count per day. This should be mileage you earn outside of your regular activity.

A: You can go outside, inside, in your basement, treadmill, at the gym, etc.  Any way you can get your miles in, count!

Q: Do my miles count from before the start date of my challenge? 
A: No, only miles you do from September 12th through December 31st should be used! Let's get and stay fit together!

Q: Can I run/walk multiple times a day? 
A: Yes, breaking your miles up several times a day counts too!
