Frequently Asked Questions
When does the challenge run?
January 1 – December 31st, but you can join at any time and start whenever you’re ready. If you join say in April, you’ll still have until December 31st to finish your 365 miles.
Why do you have to pay to register?
Your registration fee supports the challenge. It allows us to provide all of the fun things that we do all year. Think of it as a race entry fee, only it’s for a race that lasts all year long.
How do I record my mileage?
Registration includes access to our 365 Mile Challenge App! It will allow you to track your miles by linking it to a device or app that you already use (Strava, Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch/iHealth, Google Fit, or Map My… apps), use the built-in pedometer feature, or manually log your miles. There will also be “Mileage Monday” posts every week in the Facebook group for you to report your mileage. When the challenge is finished, your finisher’s certificate will appear right in the app!
What if I miss a day?
It’s okay! Make it up over the rest of the week. You can log the miles however you want. While the goal is to build a habit by doing it every day, some people do it every other day and some get all of their miles over the weekend. If you’re just starting out though, we highly recommend that you try to get out as close to every day as possible.
Is this challenge open to everyone, regardless of where we live?
Currently, the 365 Mile Challenge is only open to folks in the U.S A. and Canada, but we’re investigating options to make it available internationally soon.
What kind of miles can I log?
Any activity that gets your legs moving and your heart pumping counts. For example, running, hiking, and mountain biking count, but 4-wheeling doesn’t. When in doubt, send us a quick message and we’ll get right back to you. The goal here is to get our bodies moving!
How do I count activities like aerobics or yoga?
For exercises that are not easily tracked by distance, we have a helpful conversion chart that converts time spent on these activities into distance equivalents that you can use. You can even have your time automatically converted into distance on the app by manually logging your miles in the “Other” category!
Can I do this as a family? Is there an age limit to participate?
We encourage you to bring your spouse, children, parents, aunts, uncles and favorite pets along for the ride. To enroll in the challenge however, they need to be at least 18. We do have an 365MC Explorers Mini-Challenge for children ages 2-18, but only if the parent or relative is a current member.
What do I get if I complete 365 miles?
If you’ve completed at least 365 “self-propelled” miles during the year, you’ll get insane bragging rights and a finisher’s certificate that will pop up right on the app that you can share! We also have cool patches and a stunning medal available that you can add-on to your registration.
Can I do more than 365 miles?
Yes! Many of our members come back every year with goals to double or even triple their miles! We have special patches for those who complete a Double, a Triple, or an Xtreme (anything more than a Triple)! You can add-on a patch during registration and tell us which patch you’ve earned when the challenge ends.
