STRIPES vs. SOLIDS 8000
This is the latest installment of NT+ Challenges. It is another TEAM DISTANCE RACE, and the goal is to accumulate 8000 MILES as a TEAM before the other. However, this time we're only going to have TWO TEAMS. The FIRST TEAM to run 8000mi takes home the DIGITAL TROPHY! CHALLENGERS will select their TEAM according to their respective birthMONTH. All running levels are welcome. #makeitcount!
STRIPES (Odds; JAN / MAR / MAY / JUL / SEP / NOV)
SOLIDS (Evens; FEB / APR / JUN / AUG / OCT / DEC)
- What's the purpose?
To promote and/or maintain good health and exercise. It may also inspire us to run that extra mile to test our physical and mental capabilities.
- What do I get?
Winners of the challenge will get a digital NIKE+ Trophy added to their collection. Most importantly, all Challengers will be able to achieve their fitness goals.
- What do I need?
You will NEED a Nike+ capable device; iPhone 3GS-4, iPod Nano/Touch, or Nike+ (or GPS) watch. You'll also need to register an account at nikeplus.com (free) to track your individual progress and NT's overall progress. If you've ordered from NDC before, I'm sure you can use the same login.
If you have an iPhone/iPod Touch, there are two options. One is download the Nike+ GPS app ($1.99 from the App Store). The other is to purchase a Nike+ sensor (~$18). If you have an older iPod, you'll need to purchase a Nike+ sensor and receiver. I think it's around $30 (correct me if I'm wrong).
- How can I join the challenge?
After registering a Nike+ account, click on the link above, and add yourself to the appropriate team according to your birthMONTH.
- How does it work, and how can I contribute/participate?
Once you have your Nike+ device and app in good working order, get out there and RUN! or WALK! Once you've completed your workout, simply sync it to the Nike+ website, and it should accumulate to your team's total mileage. However, remember you must FIRST JOIN THE CHALLENGE in order for the MILES to COUNT for your team's total.
For NEW Challengers who've just joined the Challenge as it's in progress AND have run recently prior to joining the Challenge, your mileage WILL be also be COUNTED just as long as the runs were completed after April 1, 2012.
- When does it start?
April 1, 2012.
- Is there a deadline to join?
Yes. May 31, 2012.
- Is there a limit for the # of Challengers?
No. The more, the merrier!
- When does it end?
When the FIRST TEAM RUNS and ACCUMULATES 8000mi. Otherwise, it will expire on April 1, 2013.
