The official definition of a running streak, as adopted by the Streak Runners International, Inc., and United States Running Streak Association, Inc., is to run at least one mile (1.61 kilometers) within each calendar day. Running may occur on either the roads, a track, over hill and dale, or on a treadmill.
Any interested person may apply for SRI/USRSA membership, but no runner can have their running streak listed on either the active or retired running streak list until it has reached at least one year in duration.
A fully completed and signed Streak Certification Form is required of all runners who seek listing on either the active or retired running streak lists.
It is the individual runner's responsibility to notify the SRI/USRSA once his or her running streak qualifies for listing, and again when the status of the streak changes from active to retired. Failure to do so may result in the streak being struck from the SRI/USRSA rolls.
