Description

2021 VALKYRIE 100 Challenge 
 
2021 VALKYRIE 100 Mile Challenge a personal challenge that you can join online, log your real world hours or miles with you horse or on your own power.  You can walk, run, bike, hike, drive a carriage, ground drive or for this challenge since it is your choice miles.   


More about the Challenges and how it works:


Your Challenge at Your Pace; for this challenge you will log hours miles either online, your own notebook or a calendar.  
You decide, ride as little as one mile at a time or divided the mileage into three days per week or a few short rides during the week followed by a few extra miles of adventure on the weekend.  


The idea is motivation and momentum in a goal for you and your horse to achieve your milestone of 100 miles. You set your pace, the days, the time/ miles and if you aim for 25 per week you will be finding yourself at 100 miles by the end of the month!  Or you can add up the miles over several weeks!  You decide what is right for you and your horse to create those 100 miles of memories with together.   THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT.

Here is a list of frequently asked questions:
 
CAN I TRACK RESULTS ONLINE? 
Yes, online tracking on our page is an option, though it is just that, one option. It is no required to use online tracking.  You can also track in your favorite fitness app, on a calendar or in a notebook.

 

*IMPORTANT*

You can track your mileage on this website under the "RESULTS" tab of your challenge.  *You will not show up under 'Participants' until you track your first miles under 'Submit Virtual Results'.  
Use of online tracking under the results tab is optional.  

ARE THERE PLACINGS?
Yes and no.  While it may look like there are placings under results, there really are not because not everyone starts at the same time and also not everyone chooses to track online- and people update their miles at different times.    So, no, there really are no true placings.  Although this is categorized on this sign up page as a virtual race, the only winners are you & your horse spending time together gaining experience, fitness, friendship and miles.  This is a challenge, not a race.   

 
 
WHAT DO I RECEIVE FOR COMPLETION? 
A milestone medal, an embroidered patch and a pin to commemorate the100 miles you have achieved with your horse or run/walking on your own.  Many participants are putting the patch on a jacket, saddle pad or on their pommel bags. 
 
WHAT MILES COUNT?  
We are happy to say that this motivational challenge is open to riders, carriage drivers, those walking with their horses!  And it is also open to hikers, runners and cyclists! We even have had someone roller blading the 100 miles.  It is your choice if you do all riding miles or combine your own fitness with that of your horse. 

 
CAN I USE MORE THAN ONE HORSE?
The answer is YES!  Though you only get the one medal and one patch per sign up!  We are creating this Challenge to encourage each other and set goals in measurable 100 mile increments.  


CAN I COMBINE MY PERSONAL RUNNING TIME OR MILES WITH RIDING TIME / MILES TO REACH 100 GOAL FASTER? 
What do you want the medal to signify to you? If you would like the medal to symbolize all of your miles with one horse, then you count just the miles with one horse.  Would you like it to symbolize how many active miles you had then you can absolutely count run/walk/ride  time or miles all together.  
 
ARE THE MILES RETROACTIVE? 
No, they are not.  The nature of a challenge is for what you are going to do once you accept it, not what you did two months ago.  So your miles start tracking on the day you sign up.  
 
DOES ARENA RIDING COUNT? 
Yes, if you are riding in a standard to large arena.  
 

WHAT IF I AM NOT IN THE USA?  CAN I STILL I AND GET THE MEDAL?
The cost of this challenge includes shipping of the medal to USA only. 
 If you are outside of the USA you will be mailed the embroiled patch only. UNLESS you request to have the medal shipped outside of the USA at your cost. 
For international participants we mail an embroidered patch of the same size and design of the medal.  Thank you for understanding that if I paid for the international shipping it would cost me far more than what the sign up fee is and I cannot do that.  Due to some unpaid international shipping, shipping of outside of USA requested medals will not be shipped unless the invoice for shipping is paid ahead quickly.
