How to become a Spring Spartan, a person of great self-discipline......
The program consists of two key pieces. Point Collection and Honor Miles.
To collect points, check-in with FITVIL at the weekly workouts, special events and races. We will track your points and keep you updated on how you’re doing. These points will earn you discounts/prizes along the way. Point collection is between May 4st and June 25th.
YOU select a goal mileage. It’s your responsibility to keep track of your total mileage using the honors system. We provide a weekly log to help. But please use your Garmin, mapmyrun, IPhone or whatever works best for you. On the FREE online registration form please indicate the total distance you would like to cover this session. And then, being active on your own, and using all our group workouts and activities, track ALL your mileage run or walked between the start and end date of the program counts towards your total! At the end of the program we’ll see how we all did in meeting our goals! **online registration form will ask your for a mileage total. Please put in a total for the 2 months.
