You can use whatever mileage tracking or GPS app/device that works best for you (Garmin, MapMyRun, Strava, Fitbit, etc). For Stationary Biking, Elliptical, etc. you can use the machines' mileage/distance tracking.

To keep it flexible for all of the participants, we are not requiring you to sync or upload your .FIT or GPX files! You will receive awards on your results page as you pass through the different milestones.

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION

We are proud to announce our partnership with AMEXTRA, a non-profit in Mexico and the USA! We are donating a portion of each entry to directly help 375 children aged 3 to16 years and their parents, who live in or near a garbage dump, in the municipality of Tultitlán, State of Mexico. These children face daily challenges of violence, mental and physical health, access to clean water, clean clothes, health care services and nutritious food. 59% of these children do not attend public school and are illiterate. Their parents have an elementary to middle school education level making it even more challenging for them to help with homework for the children that do attend school. 

Your entry fee will help provide nutritious food, education and mental health services, health care, and workshops (for kids and adults) to learn the value and skills of nonviolence and living together peacefully. These workshops also teach the children how to cope and manage their emotions from the repeated exposure to violence and domestic abuse.
