The Strava Mile: Run your best mile in June and share your story with Strava #MyMile
If you forgot to put it on the calendar, June 7 is Global Running Day, and as we are mostly a day ahead of every one here in Fiji, we are doing ours on Thrusday 8th to be running at same time as every one else 🙂
Take the Challenge with Strava #MyMile
Tell the story of your run with #MyMile on Strava. The perfect lines of the local track, a group selfie of you and your mile crew, your big ice cream reward for your equally big effort – #MyMile is how Strava athletes are sharing the personality of their run.
The Strava Mile: Run your best mile in June and share your story with #MyMile
All you need for this one is guts. Just about any runner can get through a mile. But it takes courage to toe the line and go for a new PR. For a few minutes, you’ll have to believe in yourself with total certainty. You’ll be determined and relentless. You’ll be a badass on the run at top speed. It’s going to burn while you try, but feel amazing when you’re done.
Whatever your time – that’s between you and your mile. The Strava Mile is about bringing all kinds of runners together to celebrate a big, bold effort and smash a few (million) PRs, and we want you in.
It’s free. It’s simple. It’s for anyone with the guts to try. Join us.
How it Works
It’s pretty simple: Of course we want to see a PR effort, but you don’t have to score a PR time – giving it your best shot and using #MyMile in your activity title is all you need to do to enter.
You can use the Strava app or a compatible GPS device. We suggest going to a place with great reception and running a little over a mile. As much as we wish they could, GPS satellites can’t always track you perfectly, and we don’t want a spotty signal or distance rounding error to spoil your big effort.
Tell the story of your run with #MyMile. The perfect lines of the local track, a group selfie of you and your mile crew, your big ice cream reward for your equally big effort – #MyMile is how Strava athletes are sharing the personality of their run. Check out some of our favorites and share your own.
It’s easy to share from Strava to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter – just tap the share button from the activity detail page of your mile attempt. We’ll be keeping an eye out for #MyMile stories and awarding limited edition Strava socks from The Athletic for creative posts.
