Challenge The Norm 2020 Virtual Triathlon Challenge #TriForFibromyalgia Participants Information

HOW DO I LOG MY RUNNING/WALKING/CYCLING/SWIMMING?

You can log your runs/walking/cycling/swimming in anyway you see fit. There are many great running apps out there such as Strava, Garmin & Runkeeper (have a look on your phones app store!) We just ask that you submit your running evidence by 1pm on the 14th July for the June challenge or by 1pm on the 14th August for the July challenge in order that we can get your medal sent out to you ASAP! 

ARE THERE CERTAIN AMOUNTS I HAVE TO DO OF EACH ACTIVITY?

Quite simply no! You can do any combination of walking, running, swimming and cycling to make up your distance!

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE A FLARE UP?

Yes, we realise it's particularly important with a chronic pain and fatigue condition to allow flexibility, you may sign up feeling great and ready to take on the challenge however you maybe affected by fibromyalgia particularly bad on some days which makes the challenge unachievable for you, particularly during these winter months.

If this happens and you are worried you will be unable to complete the challenge, let us know, we will extend your deadline for a more comfortable challenge for yourself.

Listening to feedback from our first run for Fibromyalgia we've allowed this flexibility as well as decreasing the cost by making the event a medal only one!

WHEN DO I NEED TO SUBMIT MY EVIDENCE BY?

We just ask that you submit your running evidence by 1pm on the 14th March 2020 for the One Month challenge or 14th April for the Two Month challenge in order that we can get your medal sent out to you ASAP! Early submissions are always welcome!
