You have to run 1 mile (1.6 km) 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 1 mile section of your activity).
You will not show up on the Challenge Leaderboard unless you complete an activity over 1 mile (1.6 km).
To ensure you meet the Challenge goal, we recommend you run a small amount over 1 mile 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 1 miles (1.6 km) 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.
Have fun and be safe. Use common sense when it comes to traffic, weather, or other conditions while taking part in this Challenge.
