Of course, if you go by the strict definition of scoring, running/walking are scored differently from cardio. 

 

For me, however, I have been doing the run/walk thing for 3 miles, and it takes me 40 minutes.

 

If I score that as run/walk, it's 12 points.

 

If I score that as cardio (which it is, but not in the VRAA definition), it's 13 points.

 

I'm fine with that.  I will continue to score it as 12 points.

 

Of course, the original expectation was that this was a running game, on a running message board and also that the average runner runs more than 3 miles in 40 minutes.  So, running would always equal more points than Cardio.

Popped in, saw this, and had to reply.  Back in the day when I used to participate in the VRAA (hey!  I made a rhyme!) I asked about hiking.  I hike the NH White Mountain 4,000 footers.  Sometimes 6 miles will take 4 hours (total hiking) with lots of elevation gain, rock scrambling, etc.  But, because I knew the mileage, I could only count it as 6 miles x 4 points/mile = 24.  For cardio it would have been what .... 80 points?  (240 min/ 3points per mile).  Even as commish I couldn't change the ruling, too many were opposed.
