Miles Madness is an elimination-style virtual running tournament. On September 7, every registered runner will be placed into a bracket based on their gender. Each week, participants will compete head-to-head against another competitor to see who can run that week's prescribed distance the fastest. The runner who submits the faster time will advance, while the runner with the slower time will be eliminated.
There will be six rounds with each round featuring a different race distance. Each round will last one week. During that week, runners are free to attempt the distance as many times as they want, on any course of their choosing (no treadmills!). Runners just need to make sure they submit a time as instructed before 4 PM EST on Sunday night.
Miles Madness Prize Money (REAL MONEY!)
25% of all registration dollars will fund the total prize pool. Of the total prize pool, 65% will be split by the female and male bracket winners and 35% will be split by the female and male runners up. *Please note: any amateur athlete who finishes in a "prize money position" will have their earnings donated directly to their school cross country/track program. Run fast for your school and help your team!
