Million Meter Madness 2017 - Ski in the New Year for charity!
Want to challenge yourself with some extra cardio during the holidays while also fundraising for charity?? We are setting a goal to complete at least 1 million meters on the ski erg as a community before the New Year. Grab a partner (or a team) and complete at least 50,000 meters on the ski erg from December 15, 2017 to January 1, 2018! Once we achieve 1 million meters as a community, Terminus will match the donations of every team that completes the minimum requirement of 50,000 meters!
*We will be giving 100% of donations to Habitat for Humanity. A $10 dollar cash donation is required for each person to join the challenge. Donations can be given to any coach on staff starting Dec 12, 2017
*Teams must be a minimum of 2 people up to a max of 4 people. Once you have a team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your Team name and the names of your partners.
*Teams must complete a minimum of 50,000 meters by end of business on Jan. 1 in order to count toward the community 1 million meters.
*Terminus will match each $10 dollar donation up to $500. The community must meet the 1 million meter challenge in order for the Terminus match to kick in. We highly recommend going above and beyond the minimum requirement to ensure the overall challenge goal is met.
*This is above and beyond class! Class is your priority, so there is no skipping class to get your meters in!
*Split the meters amongst your partnership however you like- partner intervals, distance intervals, or distance pieces etc. Warm-up and cool down with the ski erg. You do not have to be present with your partners in order to complete meters. Ski with your partners or ski alone (although together is much more fun!) The goal is to collect as many meters as possible.
*Meters should be completed before or after class preferably, but if you need to come back in at a different time of day, that will be ok.
*You and your partners will be responsible for tracking your meters on the designated whiteboard in the gym. When you have completed a portion of your meters, update your total meters on the designated challenge area of the board. Please keep this up to date as we will be tracking with a master spreadsheet.
*Yes… Ben will be helping to pad the overall meters!
To kick off this challenge- Coach Ben will be around Saturday Dec 16, 2017 to lead a short demo and instruction on ski erg technique and positioning during the warm-up for each class time. Ben will be hanging out from 8:30 to 11:30 to further work on technique or answer any questions that you might have.
