IBA Mile Eater Program

Iron Butt Logo The Iron Butt Association Mile Eater program acknowledges members who complete multiple certified rides. There are different levels of Mile Eaters, each one more difficult than the last and clearly designating the hard core riders:

Mile Eater

Anyone who completes more than one certified ride but NOT on the same ride, for example, your first ride is a SaddleSore 1000 and at a later date, you complete another certified ride, such as a Bun Burner 1500. However, completing a SaddleSore 1000 AND Bun Burner 1500 on the same continuous ride is not eligible for Mile Eater status.

Mile Eater Certification

TWO or more certified rides makes members eligible to acquire Mile Eater items such as stickers, shirts and pins - no certification is needed to order those items, the store manager checks your status before shipping Mile Eater items.

For those interested in a summary of their ride history in one document, optional Mile Eater certifications are available by completing the application at the end of this document sending in a list of your rides and paying a nominal fee.

Mile Eater BRONZE

Bronze status is earned by completing at least FIVE certified rides, of which 2 must be GOLD or INSANITY level or greater than 48 hours in duration without a time limitation (you can earn Bronze status over several years).

Mile Eater SILVER

The Silver level is totally different (this time limit does not exist in any other Mile Eater program). ALL rides must take place in 12 consecutive months from first ride to last ride for all rides(1 year start to finish).

Silver status is earned by completing at least FIVE certified rides, of which 2 must be GOLD or INSANITY level or greater than 48 hours in duration, in ONE YEAR OR one certified ride per month during a one year period (12 rides in 12 months - one per month)
