How does the Challenge work?
The challenge is a run/walk/jog one mile a day challenge. You don’t have to run. You don’t have to jog. You can walk or even crawl the mile but it needs to be a dedicated one mile completed each day. No bikes. No swimming. Treadmills are fine. Log your mileage each day and submit at the end of the challenge.
Is there a dedicated hashtag for the event?
Yes, you can use #streakingwiththecoolkids for all posts related to Instagram or Facebook. This is the official hashtag for all Streaking with the COOL KIDS Challenges. We suggest that you follow this hashtag on your social media accounts if you want to see all the activity of the other members.
Where can I log my daily activity?
If you have a tracker, phone app (like Strava or Nike Running) or any other similar recording device it is easy to record the runs. Fitness apps like Apple Health and wearables like Fitbit, Garmin, and Apple watches are also a great way to track your daily mileage. Just upload a photo or screenshot of the overall miles for the month on your evidence form and that is it! Done!
If you are planning on completing some or all of your miles on a treadmill, or don’t have access to a smartphone or recording device, it’s not a problem either. Just make a note of the miles you have completed in a training log, whether this is on a spreadsheet or hand written – whatever works for you. You can work out the mileage of your route using online maps to calculate how far you’ve run if you’re unsure of the distance. Officially you can submit your activity miles at the end of the challenge. Don’t forget to share with us through social media what you are doing to stay active!
Is there an official Facebook page or group for the event?
Yes, we actually have an official Facebook Group that you can join. It is called the “Streaking with the Cool Kids” Facebook Group.
If I miss a day, can I start over?
You can always start over but unfortunately it will not count toward being an official finisher of the challenge. We have had participants struggle to complete the challenge for several years before finally completing the challenge officially. Victory wouldn’t taste so sweet without adversity.
When will my merchandise be sent?
Participant shirts, hats and other gear will be sent upon receipt of the order. Finisher shirts and hats will begin to be mailed the week of January 18th. Pre-orders will close on January 8th, 2021 with two weeks for creation and receipt of product.
Participants in the “COOL KIDS HOPE 5K/10K Virtual Race” will have their medal and shirt shipped beginning the week of January 25th, 2021.
What if I have further questions about the challenge before or during?
