Our virtual mission has had lots of interest but not everyone is tech savvy so here’s a few tips to help you get started on your very own 500 mile challenge.
How do I sign up?
How much does it cost?
A one off payment of £15 will be taken on joining the mission, no other fees or costs will be added at any time. Medals will be delivered after you’ve finished your mission.
How do I connect Strava?
Click on My Account and from the drop down menu select My Connections to see the list of apps that can be connected, on some mobiles you may need to view the page in desktop mode to see this option.
Can I do it Solo?
Of course, but you will find the distance more manageable as a team, get in touch if you’d like to be teamed up with other members, or let us know your crew name and we’ll set it up for you, when your crew sign up they will be able to select it from the list.
What if I don’t finish on time?
The time limit can be extended, just send us a message if you think you need longer, though you may be ineligible for some of the prizes.
Can I start this mission at any time?
Yes, prize giving will take into account when you started the race, so don’t worry if everyone else is ahead, you could still finish fastest.
What does the medal look like?
Engraved with the Longships Lighthouse and personalised with your name and crew name, plus they are hand painted with gold to add a little bling.
