Hello Runners and walkers. It’s summer and it's hot!!! The parks are beautiful and we would all normally be training or building up some base mileage before training in fall. Right now as we slowly move through our phases to reopen and get back to normal running/ training and group events we need to continue to stay active and healthy!
We are in a weird time right now where we are still unable to meet as a group for workouts and races, so what are we to do? Because the 200 mile spring challenge was such a hit we decided to do it again, but on a small scale. We challenge you to do 100 miles in the months of July and August! Starting July 6th and ending August 14th you have 40 days to get 100 miles! It's hot so motivation may be lacking for some!
We know that exercise is so important in staying healthy, along with good nutrition, hydration and now social distancing. So, I challenge you! I challenge you to 100 miles starting July 6th and ending August 14th, That's an average of 2.5 miles a day! Make sure to bring your water!!!!
*** SAFETY FIRST! Please consider running/walking in your own neighborhood or during uncongested times on trails. Be respectful and keep an eye out for bikes and other runners! This is meant to be an on your own event. And as always please keep a minimum distance of 6 feet from other runners/walkers.***
We encourage you to join Strava. (www.strava.com) This is a great app used to track your runs, rides and swims. (**Note: if you walking, log as a "run" on Strava or it will not track your mileage on the dashboard for you) Strava is free to join and a great way to also connect with other runners in your area! Please email your Username to email@example.com if it something different then your name. At the end of the challenge we can verify your mileage on the app!
Option 2 would be to join the challenge on Garmin connect. Join the Fleet Feet Chico Staff and Friends to join the walking or running (or both) challenges. Don’t want to join another app?
Not a problem, Apple and Fitbit will all track your mileage as well. Just submit your miles each week to firstname.lastname@example.org
Youth runners and walkers:
You will print and track using our Activity Journal. This is a great way to not only track your activity, but you can also track how you felt, who exercised with you, where did you go and how long did it take you. At the end if the challenge you will have a great Journal of all your workouts and see all the great progress you made! Activity Journals can be accessed by clicking here. Each page is good for one week.
All participants who complete the Summer Mileage challenge will receive a custom shirt designed by Upper Park Clothing! We will reveal the design soon!
Email us pictures of some of your adventures and we will post them on on social media.
**Want a little extra challenge?!? Each week we will email out a special challenge. Could be hills, maybe a speed workout or even a scavenger hunt! There will be fun prizes and giveaways for the bonus challenges, so you will want to look out for the email! **
