The April hill climb challenge is heating up! 60 attempts have been made at the hills on our list so far with two more weeks to go. If the lockdown ends before the challenge will we see people bagging peaks outside their neighbourhood bubbles?

April Part 2

📅 Weekly Challenge

Heat mapping – run every street round your house, even the dead ends.

🏆Monthly challenge

The list of hills including links to Strava Segments is here.

It includes… The Full Makara Climb, Korokoro, Wainuiomata Hill
Aro Valley, Onslow Road, Houghton Valley, Mt Victoria, Miramar climb to prison, Brooklyn to Wind Turbine, The Pylon 4WD in Crofton Downs, Old Wadestown Rd and Ironside Rd

⏱2 minute mission

Foam roll for two minutes. If you do it consistently you’ll be able to do it without crying about it on Strava after a week.

😜Just for fun

We have a very cool colouring competition drawn by Ultra runner and illustrator Dawn Tuffery, download it here.

Spot prizes to be won for anyone who enters!

Make sure you share your efforts with us on Instagram and Facebook 🙂 #Socialdistancerunning or #Activedistancing

⚠️ Please keep all of your runs and walks local, and don’t take any risks. Nobody will be able to get within 2 metres of you to stop your Garmin when you’re incapacitated.

We’ll be running our points system just for our members that rewards both participation and achievement.

Submit your entries here.

Bonus points will be awarded liberally for those who keep the rest of us entertained.

What the emojis mean:

📅Weekly Challenge

Consistency is key to forming great habits. Keep motivated with an easy weekly challenge you can tick off and use it to build towards your goals.

🏆Monthly Challenge

If you are missing the race environment and being able to push yourself, this is the one for you! We’ll mix it up with handicapped time trials, segment grabs and volume based goals.

⏱Two minute mission

Don’t have time to go for a run? You can achieve something in just two minutes of your day. Small challenges to make your day more interesting, and encourage you to try something new.

😜Just for fun

It might be running related, it might not. Do something a bit different to make someone else smile.
