How it works: You’ll need a GPS watch and a Strava account.
At midnight on December 31st, 2018 the website will be updated with the ten trails that compose the challenge. All trails will be within a 20 mile radius of downtown Bellingham.
To complete the Strava challenge you must upload your run for each of the ten trails to Strava. A score will be determined based on your place for each of the ten segments (if there are 73 entrants, the top time will get a score of 73, second time, 72, etc.) Your score for each of the ten trails will be summed to determine your overall score and place.
Once you have registered for the Ten Trail Challenge, to enter the Strava Challenge, log into Strava, click Explore, Clubs, search for and request to be added to the "Ten Trail Challenge - Bellingham" club.
