Challenge Suggestions


Currently we only have 4 BestRun recurring challenges:

• 10-miles/week
• 25-miles/week
• Most Miles in a Month
• Fastest 3K each week

What other challenges might you be interested in?

We can do races (fastest time for a defined distance), other "most miles" challenges, other "fastest run" challenges, or other types of distance goals.

I think it would be pretty cool to hold an "official" BestRun online 3K, 5K, or 10K at some point. Perhaps we could hold events of that type once or twice a month?

I'd really be into it, but what are your thoughts?

Re: Challenge Suggestions


If there is interest in "official races" I'd probably set them up for the beginning of August and mid-August.

I'm still a newbie runner, and wouldn't expect to place in the top three, but I'd definitely enjoy the challenge.

Re: Challenge Suggestions


Ok, judging by the responses so far, we are definitely going to do it. I may want to do a limited "beta test" on the race before the actual race to make sure our run data can be uploaded and recorded on the correct date.

Nike+ didn't update my run data from Saturday to the challenges that began on Saturday.

Perhaps we could use our current standings in the current challenges to determine "classes" or "race groups". I would like the races to be fairly balanced, in that I wouldn't want our fastest and slowest runners competing directly against one another.

Not sure yet, but we still have a few days to work out the details.

Re: Challenge Suggestions


I think this is a great idea.

Races and challenges certainly work for me as a motivational aid!
