The goal for members is to run 1,200 miles or more by the end of 2015. The rules are simple:
2.Record your miles
3. At the end of the month forward your mileage to Gordie
Everyone is on the honor system There are no worries because the average is what matters. If you have an exceptional month it is miles in the bank. Likewise, with a bad month you have not been disqualified and you don’t even have to get back on schedule in the following month. Just catch up over the rest of the year. Those runners who complete the 1200 miles for 2015 & turn their mileage into Gordie at least quarterly but preferably monthly will receive an award. The person with the highest mileage will receive an additional award.
Send your mileage to firstname.lastname@example.org.
