Dirt in Your Skirt 100 Mile Summer Challenge

The Dirt in Your Skirt group is bringing back their 100 mile summer challenge for the second year.  The challenge begins on June 1 and runs through September 1, 2014. Runners will log their miles on their own and communicate with each other via Facebook.   The cost is a modest $30, and those completing the challenge will receive a Muckle similar to the one shown below.

I love the concept because it has something for everyone.  Long distance runners can complete the challenge in as little as a day or weekend, and those new to the running community can keep their training on track throughout the summer.  Runners are still ranked according to completion date, adding a bit of competition to the whole challenge.

Last year I took four weeks to complete the challenge by just sticking with my usual 25 mile per week training schedule.  This year my goal is three weeks and I’ll be kicking-off the challenge on my June 1 birthday with a half marathon trail run.
