How will the challenge be tracked?

What is Strava?

Strava is a free app to download, that uses GPS to record your distance walked... this is automatically connected to your online fundraising page on entry. 

 

How do I get it?

You can connect your Strava account when you create your online fundraising page or later on via the "Connect to Strava" button on your fundraising page. This will be visible when you are logged in.

 

IMPORTANT! Your Strava settings!

When you are completing your challenge miles, ensure Strava is set to 'Everyone' and select 'walk' as the activity otherwise the miles may not be logged on your fundraising page. We can then track your miles to show you have achieved your goal! 

 

For all other training or non-challenge walks set Strava to 'private'.

 

What if I can't or do not want to use Strava or want to use another device to track my distance?

If you are using a different measuring device please take a picture or a screenshot of your activity. Whilst you are logged into your fundraising page you can then add each of your walks as a manual activity to your page and add this photo to each activity, which will then be included in your total mileage. Click here for instructions for mobile upload or computer upload.

 

This must be received by 4th November 2021

Once we have notification your challenge is completed we will send an online certificate and your well-deserved medal will follow in the post.

Proof of completing the October Challenge

Is there a deadline for sending my proof of completion?

Yes. This date is the 4th November 2021

 

What will happen if I don’t get my proof of completion to you in time?

We will send you an email to remind you a few days before the deadline to send in your proof of completion. If we do not receive this in time we will be unable to send you your medal. 

 

This is the responsibility of each challenger and must be received by Walk the Walk no later than 4th November 2021 to ensure that you all receive the well-deserved medal. Unfortunately, medals cannot be guaranteed after this date!

If you experience any problems submitting your proof of completion please let us know immediately so we can help you. 

 

IMPORTANT! Your Strava settings!

When you set out for any walks, make sure Strava is set to 'Everyone' and select 'walk' as the activity otherwise the miles may not be logged on your fundraising page. We can then track your miles to show you have achieved your goal! 

 

For all other training or non-challenge walks set Strava to 'private'.

 

What if I can't or do not want to use Strava or want to use another device to track my distance?

If you are using a different measuring device you can add your mileage daily or weekly as a manual activity to your page. You can also add pictures or screenshots of your activities, daily or weekly if you wish. Click here for instructions for mobile upload or computer upload.
