How will it work? Use a running app (Garmin Connect, Strava, RunKeeper) to record your run and time on the North Mitten course, upload your GPX file and e-mail it to email@example.com . Your time will be added to the score board and used to calculate results on race day (Sunday, September 6, 2020). You do not need to be present to win.
