Starting January 1, 2018 the club will provide you a new incentive to get your miles in. Here are the details:
What is it? A program in our club built to recognize those members who achieve mileage milestones of 365 miles or 1,000 miles in 2018.
Who can participate? Anyone affiliated with the Mach Tenn Running Club (PS it is free) that joins the club’s Strava group and records their miles on the site or app at https://www.strava.com/clubs/machtenn. Strava will allow you to record miles by using their app while you run, importing from many GPS watches and entering manually. Mach Tenn membership is for runners and walkers in Southern Middle Tennessee.
What miles count? Walking, Running, and Treadmill. Basically any miles achieved during a session with running/walking being the main purpose will be counted toward the mileage program totals. Running/walking as a byproduct of another activity such as basketball, soccer, football, baseball, shopping, working in your office, or use of Fitbit do not count.
What programs are there? There is the 365 Club, this is for anyone who averages 1 mile a day for the year. You do not have to run every day, you just need to log 365 miles for 2018. There is also the 1,000 mile club. This is for anyone who logs 1,000 miles for the year.
What do you get? The 365 Club Members will get a short sleeve tech shirt with the Mach Tenn logo and designation as a 2018 365 Club Member. The 1,000 Club Members will get a premium long sleeve tech shirt with the club logo and designation as a 2018 1,000 Mile Club Member. If you achieve 1,000 miles, you will just receive the 1,000 mile shirt, not both shirts.
You can join at any time of the year. We will post a spreadsheet showing everyone’s progress each month of 2018.
