• While many of you may walk a great deal during the duties of your profession (i.e. nurses, postal workers, etc.), using the data from a pedometer/GPS while at work will NOT be accepted. Exception: Work mileage may be accepted if your duties include running, jogging, etc that is designed as a form of exercise (You teach physical fitness, are a personal trainer, professional dog walker, etc.).

• While taji100.com does offer the ability to enter mileage days, and even weeks, after the actual date/time you completed the workout, we ask that you make an effort to enter the data within a reasonable time after completion. This keeps the standings accurate and allows us at Taji 100 to place finishers accordingly in their respective divisions.
• All mileage entries will be collected and managed by taji100.com. ALL entries must be submitted through our tracking service. Entries submitted via email to the Taji 100 staff, or recorded on another service, will not be accepted.
• If you do not feel comfortable using the taji100.com site to manage your running/walking data, you may still register with Taji 100 and participate in the event. Please notify us of your intentions to participate without use of our online tracking service, and your name will be listed as an “Honorable Mention Competitor”.

• The recommended method of sponsorship is to have your sponsor pledge a certain amount for every mile you complete. This can be done up to 100 miles or as many miles as you can do in 28 days.
Example: Your sponsor pledges $0.10 for every mile you complete up to 100 miles. If you complete 100 miles, they donate $10 to Wounded Warrior Project
