The sheet to View Your Progress will be updated ONCE daily:
1. Going forward there will be a daily update at 12:00UTC (7 AM CDT)
2. Hopper Tracking - We have added a Hopper Tracking. Any mileage entered since the last tracking report can be viewed there.
Information on the Hopper Tracking is displayed during your submission of mileage process.
Google updates table data cache at every 10 - 15 minutes interval. RAT's just need to add their mileage and be a little patient

If you have any trouble, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
IT'S BEST TO ENTER YOUR DISTANCE ON THE DAY YOU RUN. (Don't worry about entering "0" if you don't run. It's not necessary.
Sometimes this isn't practical. Don't worry! if you miss a day, just add it to the next day(s). NOTE: there is a sliding three day window for entering mileage. If the window is closed on a date you want to enter mileage, then add that mileage to your next run. If you've gone several days without entering, then contact me with the information. email@example.com
ENTER ONLY ONE TIME FOR A GIVEN DATE: IF YOU RUN MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY make sure your entry is the TOTAL of the miles you covered for the day. For example: Pat "runs" 7 miles in the morning and enters the mileage in the system, then does 3 miles later in the day. There is no second screen for Pat to enter 3 miles. IF Pat enters a 3 (overriding the 7) Pat will be credited with 3 miles. The system does not add the miles together for you. In this case, Pat should enter 10 miles when Pat makes the second entry.
MESSAGE FROM BAD MIKE:
The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee will start on May 1, 2020, at 00:00:01 YOUR TIME, and will end on August 31, 2020, at 23:59:59 YOUR TIME.
We will assign your time zone based on the location you used on RunSignup while registering.
The check-in form will automatically timestamp all entries, so all you have to do is select your name from a drop-down menu and enter your miles for the day -- total miles.
If you run twice, give the total miles run that day.
If you check in twice (or more), the Tracking Sheet* will use the last submission. So if you make a mistake, resubmit your check-in.
WHICH MILES/KILOMETERS COUNT?
MESSAGE FROM LAZ
OK. Now for the important question;
Sure, you are self reporting, and we are not requiring "proof", but what miles (or kilometers) should count?
This should only be the distances you cover when you actually go out to run (or walk... I will be walking all of mine)... and yes, treadmill miles will count as well... and no, ellipticals do not count. I know some people go thru the day bristling with more electronic devices than a spy plane, counting up every step they take from getting out of bed to retiring for the night... along with a few steps for driving across railroad tracks, jiggling their leg while watching TV, or any other activity that causes one of their devices to register movement. Those are not really fair..... What should be added to the daily tally are only the miles you cover while actually doing your daily walk or run, on purpose to cover some ground.
Please; no perry mason loophole searching.... You know the intent of the rule, and that is the rule.
