Strava Challenges Grand Prize
Strava is an app for your phone or smartwatch that can be used to track your runs and/or walks. The club uses it as a means to offer each other "kudos" when we complete a workout. Members who participate, following the rules below, will be entered in a Grand Prize Drawing at our Annual Banquet in May 2024. It is not based mostly on having the highest milage but more on consistent participation. See all the rules below.

Strava Challenges Grand Prize Rules
The Strava Challenges Grand Prize for this Race Season run from October 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024 will culminate with a drawing to be held at the Annual Banquet in May 2024. One winner will be drawn for the Running Category and one for the Walking Category.
The actual prizes have yet to be determined, but we expect them to be of some significant value.
Participants must be members in good standing of FRWFL at the time of the drawing and must be members during any month in which they accumulate virtual tickets.
Participants accumulate virtual tickets by actively participating in a Strava Challenge each month. Each month there will be a 50 km Walking Challenge and 100 km Running Challenge. See this month’s Challenges https://www.strava.com/challenges
Members must choose to participate either in the Running Category or The Walking Category. Due to the possibility of injury by a runner, or walker who wishes to start running, members may change categories once during the term of this contest, by notifying the Club President.
Participants will earn one (1) virtual ticket when they complete at least 50% of their challenge and may earn one (1) additional virtual ticket when they complete over 100% of their challenge. (e.g. A walker who complete 25km earns 1 ticket while one who completes 51km earns 2 tickets)
Members may join the contest at any time, but increase their odds in the drawing by joining early.
Although members may use any tracking app that syncs to Strava, only results in Strava will be considered official.
The official Ticket Tally will be viewable on our dedicated Strava Challenges Grand Prize web page
As this is the first instance of this contest the Board reserves the right to alter the rules if necessary.
