Paddle Monster Paddle Challenge – YTD Distance Tracking

To all Paddle Monster Paddle Challenge participants, we did a small upgrade to the Paddle Monster site this past weekend to add a new feature.

Track your Year To Date Distance!

We now have the ability to electronically record your year to date paddle distances. The feature works the same way as Paddle Around the World and other PM paddle races and events.  Navigate to the “Paddle Events” menu item, then to “Paddle Challenges“, then to “Challenges – Event Registration” to register – it’s free – then to “Challenges – Distance Entry” to submit and record your results.

The “Red” boxes show you how to navigate and submit your distance once you register…

This is an example of the “Registration” screen.  Select “Yearly Paddle Challenge – 2021 Year To Date Distance Challenge” and complete the form.

This is an example of the “Distance Entry” or “Distance Submit” screen.  Select “Yearly Paddle Challenge – 2021 Year To Date Distance Challenge”..upload your “.fit or .gpx” file from your favorite tracking device or just submit your distance with a picture of the distance paddled.

Viewing Your Results

The running tally of your and other distances will appear on the “2021 Year To Date – Paddle Results”.

If you have any questions, message me at [email protected] and we’ll sort it out!
