Done! Pledged 4km, which is about what I do in half an hour at the pace I run (a slight stretch actually). It's graduation day for me too. :)

I pledged 5k but I don't know how you track it, I'm on treadmill, how do you put results in etc.

I am happy to be running with you on your victory lap

Hi, I just checked, you need to install the Strava app, then you can manually add the activity (time and distance or pace) the day of the run

Ok I can fit in 3k in spite of arriving house guests so have pledged that. But I can’t find a trace of how to report it! I will record on Strava, but do let us know what to do after that. 👍😄

I’m not sure. I’ve only used the mobile version which is not very straightforward, I’ll try on a desktop version.

It is brilliant to see how many people have joined. I will do my 30 minute run - not sure how far I run as I suspect it varies from run to run, but how wonderful to have a Global Running day and great to see that our wonderful NHS is recognised as inspiring us to put on our running shoes. x

Yes I wanted to put NHS into it as I believe it’s a national treasure, it’s just a shame it can’t cope at the moment and is stretched. 😣

And good luck for your graduation run. It's a massive achievement that is so close for you now. I got out early this morning and did my 5k. Nice amble on a glorious morning. I've uploaded my run to Strava but not sure if I have to do anything else, not being a Strava user. 5k in 30.59 which included a couple of slow downs to find my dog. There are a lot more rabbits around early in the morning!

Reply

Ok that's me done. 5.55km although I did need to take a walk for 2 minutes 30 minutes in.

I've registered the run in Strava but how do I make it count for the team?

Reply

That's me done 5k...
