- Wondering how you’re doing? Check in periodically to track your progress here!
- You can still join now and retroactively submit miles even if you’ve already missed recording a month.
- Don’t worry if you don’t see your name right away! The mileage totals will be updated roughly every two weeks.
- The red rows in the mileage chart give an indication of how many miles, based upon the length of the each respective month, you should run or walk to stay on track for your particular challenge.
