ROLL Recovery R8k

Run 8 kilometers, as fast as you can.

Challenge Ended: August 7, 2013
ROLL Recovery and Strava are challenging you to run 8k as fast as you can between August 1st and August 7th.

It's a chance to push yourself, and your pace, to see where you stack up against runners across the world. Just pick a safe stretch of road or trail, record an activity that is at least 8 kilometers long, and see how far you can climb the Leaderboard.

If you are looking for an extra bit of motivation or a chance to earn some bragging rights, try coordinating with some friends to take on this Challenge as a group.

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 8k section of your activity).

Leaderboard Sorting:
We're sorting the Leaderboard based on the average pace of the qualifying activity. This means the faster you run during your activity, the higher you will show up on the Leaderboard.

Other Details:
You have to run at least 8 kilometers in a single run (just like you do in a race), and there is no time limit to complete the activity.
