Once you have signed up for the challenge and created your fundraising page, you can choose how to track your distance. The easiest way to measure your distance is by connecting your Strava profile to your fundraising page, you can also use a FitBit or activity monitor to track your distance and manually update your online page or use a print at home sponsor form.
It is important to take care when you do this to ensure your privacy settings aren’t sharing details that you don’t want to share. By default, when you create an account your settings will be public. Please take a look at our recommended settings to keep your location information safe online.
Within ‘Settings’ go to ‘Privacy Controls’ and set all options within ‘Where You Appear’ to ‘Followers’ or ‘No One’.
It is likely your start and end points will be your home or workplace, to avoid sharing your home location you can create ‘Privacy Zones’. Type an address into the box, and choose a radius size. You can add multiple locations to this list.
If you are particularly concerned about sharing your location online, we advise that you do not use Strava for this challenge. Manually update your distance instead, using one of the other methods.
If you aren’t new to Strava, but don’t want to share your past activities, you can edit your past activities.
Manually Update Your Distance
Keep track of your distance using a FitBit, activity monitor apps or a pedometer. Take screenshots of your activities, showing the distance you’ve travelled and share to your fundraising page. Update after each activity or each week to keep your friends, family and supporters updated with your progress!
