Here it is… the first Charity Challenges event that spans an entire year! Do you have what it takes to ruck, run, and/or walk 1,000 miles in 2017? Sign up today and find out!
How It Works
We’ve built the Charity Challenges experience to be as simple for you as possible. Here’s a quick list on how to succeed at this event.
- Register for the event
- Starting 1/1/2017 log your eligible miles on your Charity Challenges account
- Expect to receive your finishers patch in January/February of 2018 when the event ends
In addition 99% of questions related to how events work can be answered by reading our frequently asked questions page.
What Miles Count?
The big question here is what miles count? Miles that you run, walk, or ruck outside of your normal day count towards this event. If you go for a morning run, walk, or ruck then that counts. If you go for an afternoon run, walk, or ruck then that counts. If you walk from your desk to the bathroom and back then that doesn’t count. If I choose to ruck to work instead of drive then that counts. Use your best judgement here but don’t cheat yourself. The goal is not to reward yourself for what you already do but to challenge you for 2017.
This is supposed to be a challenge… not a freebie to feel good about yourself. During our normal day we average 3 – 5 miles walked… which means if everyday steps counted we would have to do nothing additional to reach the highest goal.
What Activities Count?
Walking, running, and rucking count towards miles. Cycling for non-disabled definitely does not count towards miles. The only wheeled modes of transportation that count towards miles are those completed in necessary devices (example: wheel chair) due to injury or disability.
When the event ends all non-virtual registrations will receive a completion patch! Below are tentative designs for the 2017 1,000 Mile Challenge.
