Love, love the Run Across America App
It has been such a joy to be part of this effort and the app makes it even more fun. I guess it is either my phone or the connection that cuts out so I use a backup.

Distance Calculator

Distance calculator

Step 1: Set your goal

Whether you think in miles or kilometers, you can figure out about how far you want to go this spring with this handy distance converter. Now you know how far 50 km is!

That's a long way!

Step 2: Chart your path

Now, how will you achieve it? One day at a time! Customize the options to match your workout schedule. Once you sign up, you can start recording your distance the same day.

Assumptions & more info

This tool is only an estimator. You can always log more than the daily suggested distance to get to your goal faster. Or if you want to take a day off, just make sure to make up for it. You can always come back to check the graph after you've run.

What about bonus challenges?
This tool assumes you'll do the bonus challenges on the first day that they're available, and that you won't add any additional distance each day. Of course, you can choose to complete a bonus challenge on a different day or to go the extra mile and add more distance that day.
