Strava is challenging you to run 10k as fast as you can between June 15th and June 16th.
Unlike a typical 10k race, tackle this Challenge from any location, at any time of day. Skip the travel and the pre-dawn alarm clocks. Don't skip the chance to push yourself, and the pace, to see how far you can climb the Leaderboard.
Just pick a safe stretch of road (or trail), record an activity that is at least 10 kilometers long, and see where you stack up against runners across the world.
New Leaderboard Sorting:
We're now sorting the Leaderboard based on the Average Pace of the qualifying activity. This means the faster you run your 10k, the higher you will show up on the Leaderboard.
How it Works:
Your position on the Leaderboard is based on the fastest Average Pace of any activities that meet the Challenge goal requirements. The Average Pace is taken based on Elapsed Time and includes the entire duration of the qualifying activity (not just the fastest 10k section of your activity).
You have to run 10 kilometers in a single run (just like you do in a race).
There is a 90 minute time limit to complete the 10 kilometers.
The Challenge period starts and ends based on each runners local time zone.
Manual entries or treadmill runs will not count towards your Challenge effort.
All activities logged during the Challenge period must be uploaded to Strava no later than June 19th, 2013.
