About Mile Tracking
There are two ways you can log your miles for Alex’s Million Mile - automatically or manually. You can log and track automatically on your Alex's Million Mile page by using one of the following apps: MapMyFitness, Fitbit or Strava. You also have the option to track your miles manually using the pencil icon. A calendar will appear where you can enter in your mileage.
Automatic Mile Tracking
Below are the fitness apps that are compatible for automatic mile tracking. Click on each mile tracking service for an instructional video of how to connect to each one to your Alex's Million Mile page.
To connect, click on the app and you will be prompted to login with your user account. You will then be asked to authorize the app and allow it to connect to your Alex’s Million Mile page. After authorization, you will be connected to your page.
If you need to disconnect an app from your Alex’s Million Mile page for any reason, click on the yellow gear icon located at the top right corner of the app. Please note that when you disconnect, it will result in the deletion of miles already logged. You will receive a warning pop-up message before you disconnect to confirm your intention.
Manual Mile Tracking
In addition to syncing your miles with an app, you can also track your miles manually. Starting on September 1, click on the pencil icon next to the other mile tracking apps and a September 2017 calendar will pop up. Input the number of miles you ran, walked or rode on a given day and click “save.” Your miles will automatically update on your page. Please note that you will only be able to manually add miles on the current day and any days before it.
Syncing Your Miles
Starting on September 1, you can start tracking your miles on your Alex’s Million Mile page. The miles that you log using MapMyFitness, Fitbit and/or Strava will sync to your Alex’s Million Mile page within 24 hours. If you manually track your miles, the miles will automatically appear on your team page.
If you want to see the miles you log show up on your page immediately, first synch your miles on your fintess app's dahsboard and/or phone app. Then, you can click on the “Sync Your Miles” button under the app icons and your page will be updated. Please refresh your browser if you don’t see the changes right away.
