Q: Do I have to run/bike/hike the whole way and explore the whole trail?
A: No. You can run, walk, skip, ride, hike, Paddle (for water trails), hop, skate....you get the picture. Explore a portion of the trail or the whole thing!  You choose your adventure.

Q: Do I need a GPS watch/tracker or Strava? Will I need to show my watch or device for proof of being at a trail?
A: You can use one if you wish, but you don't need one, and you can't link to the log-in site with it. You are on the Honor System. There are no additional awards given for exploring all the trails the fastest!

Q: If I register after the challenge start date of June 1, can I include trails I've explored before that?
A: NO. You may only log the trails you explore on or after June 1st.

Q: How will I report my miles?
A: You do not need to track miles. 

Q: What is a custom URL, and how do I get mine?

A: Everyone has a unique URL assigned for ease in logging trails. Just click on your URL and you are taken to the log-in site for entering trails. Your name and bib are already populated, and you just add your pin# and date of trail exploration. Then submit. 

Q: I don't have time to log in on a regular basis. Is there an option to not have to do this?

A: Yes!  Since it's the Honor System, if you decide that you don't want to regularly enter your explorations, and you don't care about watching yourself vs others on the tracking map, just log them as you'd like.
