MilestonePod Challenges and Leaderboard Are Back with New Features and Great Prizes

0

Let the GAMES continue Runner of Steel! One of the most fun features of last year’s training season (the MilestonePod and leaderboard), is back this year with some brand new features! Not sure what the MilestonePod is? See below for more info! 

The Leaderboard will be going live the week of January17 with the BRAND NEW ability to filter by what race distance you are running, so you can keep an eye on the competition and see how you stack up. Learn more about getting in the game here.

If competition is not what you are after, join us anyway and be a part of a large, interactive community based around training for the marathon!  This years Leaderboard will show runners’ cumulative miles - help us beat last year’s totals!  (138,987 miles, logged 25,621 sessions, and a total of 22,484 hours run in training for the Marathon, Half Marathon, and Relay!)

Similar to last year, we will again host some fun challenges using the pod stats (just 6 -7 challenges this year, not weekly!). The first challenge will begin the week of Monday, January 23. Winners of challenges will receive prizes like gift cards or awesome gear! 

There is a new MilestonePod and updated version of the App - but not to fear, your pod from last year is still compatible and you can still participate in the challenges as long as you are currently registered for one of our 2017 races!  Want to try the new pod too? Keep your old one and attach it to a second pair of shoes you train in. The app will support more than one pod per person!

If you don’t have a Pod yet, have no fear - there are still plenty of opportunities to get one and participate in the fun! 

When you register to run for an official charity before January 31 you will receive a Milestone Pod FOR FREE. Or, if you are not running for charity and would still like a Pod they are available at a discounted price in our gear store here.

Make sure to get the full running experience and make some new friends along the way by training with thousands of your fellow Runners of Steel! 

Get back in the game today!

MORE ABOUT MILESTONEPOD: The pod (by Milestone Sports) tracks all kinds of helpful training information (not just distance and pace - but cadence, foot strike, stride length and more!) simply by attaching the lightweight device to your favorite pair of running shoes. Once clipped to your shoes you are ready to start training and can keep track of your own important information in the FREE mobile app and see how you compare to your fellow runners on the Leaderboard.
