How to log a time

Once you've registered and connected your chosen device, every time you complete a run it will be added to the leader board, you don't need to submit results every time you run.  Simply record your run as you normally would and it'll be shared with us once you save it. 

This is a challenge that you can 'Run your own way' so runs can be completed either in your home, garden or on a treadmill. We recommend that if running indoors you check your device settings to run with GPS turned off or on an indoor running setting to record distance accurately.
