Please Note for Individual Challenges:  If you ran, walked, or rolled more miles than the challenge you entered, it will not show up on this report.  Please check your Challenge Hound account to see your final miles. Also, the miles of some individuals may be higher than their challenge miles because they were a part of a unified pair.

  • For Example: Reese was registered for a 25 mile individual challenge and for a 50 miles pair challenge
    • Reese walked 30 miles and his partner walked 20 miles; Reese’s 30 miles will show up in his 25 miles challenge.
  • Questions? – Please email sportstraining@specialolympicspa.org
