2019 - 1000 mile challenge - 10 years running

<Big fanfare>

It's now 10 years since Woddle created the first 1000 mile challenge thread and we are still going. For those feeling nostalgic for old threads, and tables, then see here for where it all began.

The new 2019 version can be found here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

Same as previous years we are using Google Docs again, just click on the link above and enter your boardsie name in column A and then how far your total miles are for the year in column C, or if you count in kilometres enter that in column D. If you want you can also enter you age/ gender category in column B. Your ranking amongst the boardsies is shown on the Positions sheet.

Do not edit any other columns, except for the completion date when you have done your 1000miles. I have manually added the people who had edit access to the locked tab again for this year, and if there is anyone else who wants access to that then you'll need to PM me your Google email address so that I can enable access. I was also a bit lazy with my deletion of entries in the old spreadsheet so if you were in 2018 then you'll already find your name in the 2019 sheet, some of you may want to update your age category though.

Obviously there will be somewhere that I have messed up the calculations due to the year/ leap years or some such. Let me know if you spot those errors though and I'll get them fixed.

My annual post to remind you of an error in the date calculation

The formula for the 1000-mile estimate date is wrong.

The 2018 should say 2019 instead (you edited the first 2018 but forgot the second one)

Fixed that one now. Not sure how I missed it seeing as I made both the changes in the 2000 mile estimate column.

Oh how times have changed. To think that anyone still exists in the western world that doesn't have a multitude of GPS tracking devices on them the moment they get out of bed in the morning.

Get out of bed? Sure you need one on in bed to monitor your sleep!

In again. Hoping to hit 1,500 miles this year which would be 20% more than my previous best.

Doesn't seem to be adding new people to the positions tab. My calculations are that 29 people have added numbers but only 26 people appear on positions sheet.

That should be sorted now with everyone appearing in the positions sheet.

Thanks for setting this up again Robin.

The 'average weekly mileage' on the 'enter total here' tab is wrong as it is calculating from the start of 2018 instead of 2019

Thanks to Robin for setting up the tracker again. Always one I follow with interest. Hopefully break through the 2k miles this year for the first time.
