Rad Endurance events are measured in the form of a standardized unit of measure called a ‘Rad Mile’. This allows us to open up our events to 80 different exercise activities or sports. Virtually anyone can participate in a Rad Endurance event without being bound to the traditional race options such as running events (5K, 10K, or marathons) or… triathlons (run, bike swim). Instead, you can select your favorite exercise activities ranging from running to badminton to pilates or canoeing – pretty much any sport you can think of – then log your activity into Rad Endurance’s race tracking application.
When you log your activity, our software will reference an industry database produced by Purdue Unversity, that will convert your energy input for X activity into a normalized Rad Mile. In other words X number of minutes spent doing Y activity will result in N number of Rad Miles achieved. So you can play tennis for an hour, log your activity, then our system will convert your activity to Rad Miles and those miles will advance you along the virtual course of the Rad Endurance event that you’re participating in.
The conversion table linked below lists all of the eligible activities or sports available to you which you can select during any Rad Endurance event.“Mileage” – When entering this type of activity you will enter the miles completed.
