DO NOT LIE.
-Plan a route that will get you lots of elevation gain on foot. Make sure the climbs are all 700' or more, because smaller climbs do not count.
-On Saturday October 29th 2016, go to this route.
-Start your watch, run your route. After 8 hours, stop your watch; this is the window of time where your results will come from.
-Compile the data from your run through some legit tracker, like Strava or Movescount.
-Return to this page and click on the submit results page. Submit all the requested information by 11:59 PM PST on October 29th.
Mountain Tiger Mile Rules
-Exactly the same as HILLOWEEN rules, except:
The running clock is for 6 minutes and 66 seconds (7:06).
The 200 foot rule does not apply in a tie. Every foot counts.
What if there is a tie?
Any runners finishing within 200’ of each other will be considered a tie. Ties will be broken in the following order.
-The runner that finishes in less time wins.
-If time is the same, the runner who finished in shorter distance wins.
Do I have to use the whole 8 hours?
No, You can use as much or little of it as you like.
Are repeats allowed?
Hill repeats are boring but tend to be the most efficient.
Are poles allowed?
Are bikes allowed?
Are treadmills allowed?
Are chairlifts allowed?
Are any mechanized aids allowed?
No, stop it.
Can I pause my watch and return to the workout later in the day?
No. The eight hours begins when you begin. No pauses.
Is averaging 6,000’+ of elevation change per hour for eight hours possible?
If you submit results suggesting that you can do this, expect to undergo
a pretty high level of scrutiny from the event director and other
participants. Be prepared to have lots of indisputable evidence.
What if I don’t want to submit ________ info?
Then don’t. Only completed entries will count for prizes.
What are the age groups?
There will be prizes for gender and age group (under 40, under 55, under 100) winners.
