There are countless free smartphone apps which you can use to record your runs. Strava is particularly good as it allows you to plan as well as record your run.
We are hosting a DARED club where you can see how the other participants are getting on. If you would to be added to this group or have any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are completing any runs on a treadmill, a photo of the screen on completion will make a record of your efforts. Technical problems are inevitable and GPS devices are not 100% reliable. Records will therefore not need to be submitted and we will be relying on participants’ honesty.
Can I use a treadmill?wp_cir2023-01-30T11:49:37+00:00
Whilst there are benefits to running outside with others, sometimes convenience and weather makes the draw of a treadmill appealing. As long as the distance is covered, the challenge is completed. If a treadmill is used, photos of the screen can be taken at the completion of each run to record progress.
In the same way that you can’t turn up for a marathon with some roller skates, the DARED challenge must be completed on foot. How fast you go is completely up to you. It is however a challenge, so push yourself!
