- When: Starts 0000 GMT, 1 Jan. 1997. In the US, that's 7:00 PM EST or 4:00 PM PST, Dec, 31, 1996. You may enter at any time and (if you've kept a log) enter your miles retroactively back to the start. However, the winner is the first to cross the finish line AND submit his/her miles.
- Where: Anywhere you want, as long as each day's walk/run is measured and recorded.
- Why: Nobody has ever run 1,000,000 miles. The current record is held by Douglas Alistair Gordon Pirie of Great Britain (b. 1931), who ran 216,000 miles from 1941 to 1981 [Guiness Book of Records, 1992].
- Rules: Cutoff for all races is 100 years, on Dec. 31, 2096. To complete 1,000,000 miles, you will have to average 27.4 miles per day, although there are no intermediate cutoffs.
- Standings: Standings can be checked on the website and are updated at the end of each month.
