Syracuse Half Marathon MilestonePod Community Challenge Sponsored by Brooks

Join us for a community-wide challenge as you prepare to run the Syracuse Half Marathon. The Syracuse Half Marathon, along with Fleet Feet Sports and Brooks, invites you to participate in the MilestonePod  Challenge. For the twelve weeks prior to race day, you will be able to compete for Brooks prizes based on your weekly runs. The challenge might be ‘running the most miles before 8 am’ or ‘who has the highest average leg swing.’ You don’t need to run fast to win….you just need to run!!! In addition, all participants in the challenge will be eligible for special store discounts at Fleet Feet Sports, Syracuse.

How it works:

Purchase a MilestonePod for a discounted price of $25 during race registration. You can pick up your pod at Fleet Feet Sports in Dewitt or Clay or, for a small fee, we will ship the pod to you.

Sign up for the Syracuse Half Marathon Leaderboard (Link coming soon). Beginning the week of August 19th, the leaderboard is where all your running stats such as cadence, leg swing, total miles, etc. will be posted and the competition begins!! Prizes will be awarded and each week!! (winners to be notified by email and names will be posted on the Leaderboard webpage)

MilestonePod simply attaches to your shoe and syncs to a free app. Once you finish your run, upload your data to the app on your phone and your leaderboard profile will automatically update.  

In addition to competing for prizes, Milestone Pod will provide you with valuable information about your running style and you’ll discover ways you can run faster and more efficiently.

What is the Syracuse Half Marathon Challenges and Leaderboard?

We want our runners to have fun while training for the Syracuse Half Marathon! We have partnered with Fleet Feet and Milestone Sports to create a leaderboard for our website to help you track your training and have fun along the way!

Each week we will have a different challenge that all participants on the Leaderboard are eligible for. The challenges might be who logged the most miles during lunch hour for the week or who had an average cadence closest to 180 steps per minute. There will be a winner each week.

Challenges will be announced on social media, and on the Leaderboard. Challenge results will be based on the stats you accumulate from Monday – Sunday.

What is a MilestonePod?

MilestonePod is like a portable run lab. This lightweight and easy shoe sensor gives you in-depth run and gait analysis so you can improve your running efficiency over time. MilestonePod is a great supplement to your GPS watch or Phone App because you get unique foot-based metrics too! Learn more about MilestonePod here.
