    These FAQ’s are a little different than our typical race, if you don’t find your answer here or anywhere on the Challenge race page, feel free to use our contact form here and we will reply as quickly as possible.  We will update this page with more FAQ’s as they’re asked.

    How do I track my mileage
    – Once you register, you’ll be given instructions on how to track your miles and time via a free app (Strava) and how to log those miles in the system.  It’s really easy!

    How do I join the private Facebook group
    – Once you register, you’ll be given a link to join the private Facebook group.  You’ll have to request to join and it’ll ask you for your registration number.  We also send you a post registration email with instructions.  We will do our best to approve you as soon as possible and get you in the group.

    When will the items be shipped
    – We’ll be shipping the first “heat” on or before February 20th.  If we sell out or you’re registered for the second “heat”, we’ll be shipping those items out in the Spring and communicate with you as we get an exact date.
