Charles Sayles Challenge

Registration Closes in



This Challenge is dedicated to our own Sir Charles Sayles who left us on 1/21/21.  Sir Charles defied all
conventions by starting his running ‘career’ late in his life and ultimately running Marathons in all 50
states.  Our running community has lost a legend but his legacy will stay in our hearts and minds.

This Challenge is put together by our Coach David and lasts from February 1st through April 1st.  You have
the choice of running 8 – 10 different trails within Griffith Park.  You must complete 7 of these trails.
Once you’ve completed the trails and uploaded…you will receive a gift from USAMT. The Challenge cost
is $10 and you will sign up through our website.

Here are the steps

  1. Download the Komoot App
  2. Sign up (it’s free) and then friend USAMarathonTraining; Coach David will friend you back!
  3. Upload a tour to your cell phone, so it will tell you where to go.  You can view the maps
    online first.  Some watches with mapping, will allow uploading to the watch, as well.
  4. Download Strava app
  5. Sign up (it’s free) and then join USA Marathon Training Group.
  6. Make sure your runs/hikes/walks are connected to Strava through your device (Garmin, Fitbit,
    Suunto, etc).


Coach David will follow the Challengers on Strava and will see all the participants.  So your Komoot App
will give you the routes and Strava will record the routes.  The last upload to Strava should be completed
no later than April 2nd.

If you choose to finish both Charles Sayles Challenge and Bunny Hop, there will be an added bonus gift.

Have fun, Stay Safe, Practice social distancing and always wear a mask!

Your USAMT Board and Coaches.
