Get In The Game

Find out more about MilestonePods and how YOU can get in the Game.

The MilestonePod Leaderboard and Challenges are back with
some new features

Training for the 2017 races has already begun. So why not use all those logged miles for a chance to win prizes!?  We’ve brought the MilestonePod Challenges and Leaderboard back for more fun, games and prizes in 2017!

Not only are you training, gaming and having fun but you’re getting great insights beyond just mileage and pace - helpful things like cadence, footstrike, run efficiency and more! You can also use the Leaderboard to track your progress against other participating Runners Of Steel, or to challenge your friends and follow each other's progress all training season!

The new leaderboard goes live the week of January 17 and the first challenges start on January 23 so make sure your new or old pod is synced and ready to go and you’re in the game!

Also new this year - a new updated version of the MilestonePod. But don't worry - the old pod still works fine and will continue to track your stats both in the app and on the Leaderboard. If you want to try the new pod, we suggest moving the old pod to a second pair of running shoes, as the app will support more than one pod!

You can get a FREE MilestonePod by registering to run for an official Run for a Reason charity from December 13, 2016 – January 31, 2017.

What is the MilestonePod Challenge and Leaderboard? 

In 2016, we wanted our runners to “Get in the Game” and have fun while training for the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon.  We partnered with Milestone Sports and utilized the MilestonePod and a leaderboard that was created for our website to help track results.

Over 1,100 runners logged 138,987 miles through their MilestonePods and were tracked on the Leaderboard. We gave away great prizes, like gift cards to DICKS’ Sporting Goods and new running shoes. We’re looking to grow this running community in 2017 and have some fun along the way.

Last year we had weekly challenges, but this year we are limiting it to 6 total challenges. 

What Happens to Everyone from the 2016 Leaderboard?

Everyone’s who participated in the MilestonePod challenges through the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon last year is still on the Leaderboard (as long as they are still logging miles) but we’re going to wipe the leaderboard clean and start from scratch on January 17 when the new one goes live! (Don’t worry this won’t affect your personal stats available in your app!)

The first MilestonePod Challenge will start on January 23 so make sure your new or old pod is synced and ready to go and you’re in the game! 

What’s new this year with the leaderboard, challenges and pod?

The new leaderboard will allow participants to be filtered by the race they are running on May 7 – Marathon, Half Marathon or Relay.  So you can compare you runs to others training for the same event. Obviously, if you are not registered for one of our races that day, you can still track your overall miles and insights against all the other runners but not by event.

The challenges are structured to be event focused since we know which event you’re running.

MilestonePod has new features as well, click here for more info!

Will my MilestonePod track on the leaderboard?

If you participated in the MilestonePod Leaderboard for the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon last year, your MilestonePod will still sync with the new leaderboard.

If you received a new MilestonePod from P3R or through the P3R Gear store, it will sync with the new leaderboard.

If you purchased a MilestonePod from another store or source, you will need to contact MilestonePod and ask them to sync your pod to the DICKS’ Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon leaderboard. 

Who’s Eligible to Win Prizes?

All MilestonePod participants who are registered for one of our races on Sunday, May 7, are eligible to compete in the challenges for a chance to win prizes.   

If you participated last year but you’re not registered for a race this year, your miles will still track on the leaderboard but you won’t be able to win prizes. Once you register for the Marathon, Half Marathon or Marathon Relay, your name on the leaderboard will be associated with an event. (Updates may take several days to appear on the leaderboard). 

Challenges will be issued on social media, and on the Leaderboard. Challenges will be based on the stats you accumulate from Monday - Sunday. The challenges will be different each time - for example, it might be about pace, or sessions logged, etc. 

You can also use the Leaderboard to track your progress against other participating Runners Of Steel, or to challenge your friends and follow each other's progress all training season!
