What about race to 10% of your previous annual mileage?<br><br>
EG. My mileage is looking like it'll be about 1100 miles, so I'm racing to 110 miles.<br>
Meri's may be 3000 so she'd be racing to 300 miles<br>
Someone elses may be 300 so they're racing to 30.<br><br>
Everyone one has set there own target so it's fair, everyone should reach the target after about 5-6 weeks. An individual or team event. First to hit the mileage wins.<br><br>
A good idea?

Liath,<br><br>
It's an interesting idea.<br><br>
One problem I see with this is that not everyone here is a runner. This contest would exclude non-runners. Inclusion of all has been a guiding principle for the games we have offered. Also, the VRAA concept has been a team game. Not sure if your idea could fit into a team format.<br><br>
It <i>could</i> be a separate game. Most motivated runners would get to their 10% in one month. Then there's the possible dispartity, say, if one runner had a poor 2007 total of miles, then comes busting out their 10% in the first two weeks of '08.<br><br>
What's providing the motivation here? Could your suggestion be a sub-set of the current VRAA format?<br><br>
Let's see what others think.<br><br>
I am starting to organize the next round of the VRAA for January. I look forward to the input from you and the others in this forum.<br><br>

I don't think you should do this any more, I'm injured and can't play <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
I just schemed it while out running one day, use it/scrap it/adapt it. Up to you.

Well, hmmm. I like it actually. It doesn't reward or penalize the heavy mileage runners. In a 5 week period people can realistically run 10% of their annual mileage. A bonus point for each runner who makes that mark at the end of the VRAA.
