MOVEMBER MILEAGE CHALLENGE: Who among us can log the most miles walking and/or running?? Our Challenge starts on November 1st and goes through December 5th (which is our Into the Woods race day!). 

The 10 participants who log the most mileage over the challenge will receive a reward! We'll publish a weekly leaderboard so you can follow the standings!

There are two ways to join the challenge:

1. If you have a smartphone, download the app "Map My Fitness" by Underarmour. Once you make an account, click on the three dots on the bottom right. Then click "Friends", then "Find Friends". Search for "Woods Charter" and add as a friend once they pop up. Once Woods Charter accepts your friend request, you'll be invited to the challenge. You'll find the challenge under the trophy icon. There you can join the challenge. Anytime you go for a walk or a run, just make sure to track your walk/run on Map My Fitness. If you forget, you can manually add your workout afterwards through the app!

2. For those without a smartphone, you can submit your mileage weekly via a Google Form. The form for Nov 15th-21st can be found HERE.

Again, the challenge is open to students, families, faculty, friends - everyone!

If you have any problems or questions, email Jessica Oliver at joliver@woodscharter.org
