Hello fellow Wolverine Fans, I run (by far) the most popular sports running challenges on Nikeplus.com. Right now I am running three, MLB (Already in Progress) NFL (beginning August 7) and the NCAA Challenge. The NCAA Challenge runs from August 10 through January 7, 2010. Fellow Wolverine runners need your help. Out of 1,073 runners so far, Michigan has 32, while Ohio State has 65.
If you run/walk just 1 mile a day you can make a huge difference in the standings and possibly be motivated to run more for the "team". All you need is a Nike+ Shoe, Nike+ Sensor and iPhone/iTouch/Nano.
The rules are simple for the NCAA Challenge, Tryouts will last 3 weeks, then week by week teams will be discarded until there is 64 teams left and a March Madness type bracket will ensue with teams running the most miles moving on. The Championship Week will conclude along with the BCS Championship.
For those that are interested in the NFL Challenge, it will be run similarly, but differently. The NFL Running Teams will play a full 16 game schedule, alongside the real schedule, and earn wins and losses weekly via how many miles are ran. Best records make playoffs, same as the NFL.
To join any of the challenges, search for them on nikeplus or follow the links on my blog or join below:
