Welcome to the Run It Fast – The Club Extreme Racer Contest for 2014!
Here’s how it works:
-Each month, RIF Club members will enter their race stats in our database.
-You will be awarded 1 point for each mile you raced during the month. For example, if you raced a 5K this month, you would get 3.1 points for the month.
-The database will calculate the number of “race miles” you ran for the month and keep track of them for you and us.
-We will post the standings each month so you can see where you are in the standings.
-At the end of the year, we’ll crown a male and a female Extreme Runner (with possible age group awards/recognition as well).
So how do you enter your race information? We’ve created a form for you to enter your data into. You can find the form here for now:
We’ll be adding a link to it on the Run It Fast – The Club page for future access. Let’s look at an example of how RIF #5 filled out the form for January – April:
When you fill out the form, you’ll be entering data for one month at a time but I wanted to give you an idea of how the data will look with various examples. As you can see, RIF #5 ran one race in March that wasn’t a “normal” distance so that race was counted in the Other Races for that month and RIF #5 entered the number of miles for that race. (yes, that means you’ll have to calculate your “Other Races” miles for us – so thank you!).
The form also asks you for your Total Monthly Miles (it should include both “race” and normal training miles for the month) but this number is NOT part of the contest. Total Monthly Miles is just for fun and to see how much everyone is running. Nothing is filled out in Notes above but we hope you’ll share any accomplishments you had for the month with us. We would love to know about new PRs, new race distances completed, age group awards, wins, etc.
This is a sample of what the form looks like:
You just enter your data for the month and click Submit. It’s that easy! But make sure you don’t submit your stats until the month is over. Once again, here is the link to the data entry form:
Good luck and Run It Fast!
