    Sorry It's late guys and gals. I had to take care of a few things for the company and lost track of the challenges.

    IMPORTANT: The start date is unfortunately the 3rd, AND it's entered for 31 days since Nike doesn't allow you to change anything once a challenge is issued. I will be ending the challenge on the 31st though, just to maintain continuity and an easy to remember end date. But, since it starts on the 3rd, your runs from March 1st to March 3rd will not be counted towards your total. Sorry about that, but I can't pre-date a challenge

    As always, if you have any questions, or would like to be added to the challenge, send me a PM and I'll add you as soon as I can. (PLEASE include your E-mail/Nike+ ID as I can't add you without it)


    Challenge ends 3/30/2009 11:59PM

    Nike+ Kit: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MA365LL/C?fnode=MTY1NDA3NA&mco=MjI5Nzc (you don't need this if you have a NEW iPod touch (2G) or use the Nike+ wristband)

    NOTE:
    You DO NOT need to purchase a Nike+ shoe. See Above
    NOTE: Nike now sells a wrist band that does not require you to use an iPod or iTunes but still use the Nike+ website and participate in a challenge. Check your local stores (link) for information
    NOTE: After you upload your run to your Nike+ page it can take a while for it to show up on the challenges page. Just keep that in mind.

    I'd also like to gauge interest in changing up the challenge. Distance is not the only challenge we can do. We can do any of the following:

    [Name: Example]

    Most Miles: Most miles in 30 days wins (what we do now)
    Distance Race: First person to 50 miles wins (no set dates)
    Distance Goal: Everyone has to get to 30 Miles before the challenge ends (probably not a good idea, lol)
    Fastest: Whoever runs the fastest 5k by the end of the month wins (could be interesting)

    We can also create teams within the running crew and compete against each other as a group. we can put the big runners in opposing groups and try and even out the little guys according to everyone's average run. This might give people more incentive to push themselves as they'd be more likely to affect the outcome and could be amongst the winning group!

    Let me know what you think about these options and maybe I'll create a poll with the most popular choices.

    I'd like to see this for the garmin forerunner crew :bigthumb: I gave up on the Nike+ Setup, just not accurate enough for my taste.

    teams could be cool. Not sure how that would all get organized though.

    its a bit late, but an entire year challenge would have been cool.

    Can we back date a challenge for it to start on the 1st of Jan and run for a year? Otherwise we could just post our yearly summary once it's done.

    I'm down for the fastest 5km though

    I'm just breaking out of hibernation mode... For some reason the Nike+ website doesn't work (at all) on my MacBook, so I use Run-o-Meter. I'll just upload screenshots of my runs to "compete"

    Here is a thought, since we can't backdate and include the entire year, we could do quarters. since Q1 is almost done, The next month would be a new quarter. (April-May-June) This would give us a longer challenge without having to wait a whole year. I can even do two simultaneous challenges, Monthly and Quarterly. Your runs will be counted for both.

    Yeah I lost so many runs on the Nike+ that i moved to a more reliable GPS system (garmin forerunner). The good news is the next gen of Nike+ is supposed to have GPS capabilities so that should help a ton.
