Challenge Ended: April 29, 2017
Whether you’re competing or cheering at the Red Hook Crit and 5k, come run with us! All you have to do to complete this challenge is run 5k between April 25th and April 29th. However you cover the distance, finishing the challenge earns you a free pair of limited-edition Strava socks. Look for the Strava sprinter van at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal during the Red Hook Crit on April 29th and a few special locations around NYC before the crit. Find the locations at blog.strava.com/red-hook-crit. We'll reserve free socks for the first 1,500 people who complete the challenge and find us at the Red Hook Crit.
The first 1,500 participants who complete the challenge are eligible to receive a pair
of Strava socks while supplies last. In order to redeem your prize, visit the Strava sprinter van during the Red Hook Crit Brooklyn No. 10 on April 29th. We'll also be in a few special locations in NYC before the Crit. Follow blog.strava.com/red-hook-crit for details on locations. Show us that you’ve completed the challenge, and the socks are yours.
You have to run 5 kilometers in a single run, just like you do in a race.
Your position on the Leaderboard is based on the fastest average pace of any activities that meets (or exceeds) the Challenge goal requirement. The average pace is taken based on elapsed time and includes the entire duration of the qualifying activity (not just the fastest 5 kilometer section of your activity).
You will not show up on the Challenge Leaderboard unless you complete an activity over 5 kilometers.
To ensure you meet the Challenge goal, we recommend you run a small amount over 5 kilometers during your activity (about .5km / .3mi). This will give you a buffer in the event your activity distance is shortened after upload to Strava due to the cleanup of GPS irregularities. You can learn about how distance is calculated for our app by reading this Knowledge Base Article.
There is no time limit to complete the 5 kilometers as long as the elapsed time of the run is under 24 hours.
The Challenge period starts and ends based on each runners local time zone.
Manual entries, treadmill runs or runs marked private will not count towards your Challenge effort.
All activities logged during the Challenge period must be uploaded to Strava no later than three days after the Challenge ends.
