The system will track your progress and you can see how all the other participants are doing as well. The leaderboard will be based on distance, not pace! This is about endurance, not speed. To keep it flexible for all of the participants, we are not requiring you to sync or upload your .FIT or GPX files. Your mileage entries will be manual and you can use whatever tracking or fitness app you'd like. Upon completion, you may print your Certificate and open your Medal package!
