Questions About Recording Distance / Submitting Results

Q: How do I track my race / submit my results (Do I need a GPS watch/tracker, or Strava)?
A: You will not have to show any proof.  You can use whatever device works best for you to track your mileage and time. You are on the honor system. There are no additional awards given for running faster.

A: Yes for all.

A: No. Sorry.

Q: How will I report my time?

Q: Which miles / kilometers count?
A: You must run the event in "one attempt".  Meaning you go out once during the event dates and run / walk (or combine) your distance all at once.  For example you cannot run two miles on the 26th and 1.1 miles on the 27th.
