How do I record my mileage?

There is more info with links below, however, since everyone uses different tracking tools (Endomondo, Strava, Suunto, Garmin, FitBit, Jawbone, Map My Run) we ask that you keep track of your own mileage in whatever way you prefer. By April 15th, we’ll ask you to add them all up and give us a screenshot or photo of your total mileage. If you completed 100 miles on or before the deadline, you’ll be entered to win prizes.

If you’re not tech-savvy we have a tracker that you can print & fill out. It’s available below.

Tracking Devices

Smart Phone

There are a ton of smartphone apps to help you track your mileage. Most are free and simple to use. Here are a few recommendations to get started:

Fitbit/Step Trackers

Fitbit is currently one of the most popular devices for tracking daily activity including steps taken, sleep, calories, heart rate, and exercise.

If you are using a simple step tracker, a general rule of thumb is 2000 steps is roughly 1 mile. Most health professionals agree a good goal to reach for optimum health is 10,000 steps per day.

GPS Watch (Suunto/Garmin)

For more hardcore athletes looking for a GPS watch that will accurately track mileage, vertical gain, pace, etc for a multitude of activities  (including swimming if you get a waterproof option). Garmin and Suunto are two brands that have great options.

Our goal at 100 Mile Challenge is to get participants outside (if possible) and moving!
