Summer Running Challenge Basics

Challenge: Beat me (The Machine), earn points, accumulate time. 

What Makes This Challenge Special?

🎯 Personalised Targets: Always very achievable and based on your results. I evolve with you. It’s like having a personal running coach, but without reminders to stretch and hydrate. 

🔝 Inclusivity: Beginners and experienced runners compete on equal terms. 

♻️  Sustainability: No cheap medals or fossil-fuelled travel. All entry fees from the Summer Challenge will be donated to Cool Earth.

Receive your target time: 1K first.

Optional: Buy a quality technical running t-shirt on entry.

Step 2 - Race & Submit:

Choose your terrain: Local streets, treadmill, or another race.

✅ Beat The Machine: If you outpace me, you’ll earn a respectable 1 point.
🔥 Crush The Machine: 1.5 points (Fire emoji-worthy!)
🤖 Robot Shuffle: If you complete your distance but fail to beat me, you still get a consolation 0.5 points.

Submit your result: Then added to the detailed Race The Machine Times & Results Table
