Take on the Strava Last Mile Challenge at the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon!
Prepare to be your greatest Bristol, because we’ve got a special challenge for you.
Bristol is well known for its scenic route and vibrant community, but did you know of all of the Great Run events in the UK, it’s Bristol that has the fastest average finishing times? To celebrate your reputation for finishing strong, we’re working with Strava to bring their Last Mile Challenge to the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday 15th September.
The challenge is to make the last mile of your half marathon the fastest of your whole run. Every runner has their own goals, but when the homestretch comes into view, we all dream of the same thing. It’s not about beating the runner next to you – it’s about challenging yourself to finish strong.
If you don’t have a Strava account yet, be sure to register before the big day and track your race to be part of the Last Mile Challenge. Everyone who does this, and everyone whose last mile split is their fastest will receive a special* free trial subscription to Strava Summit. Strava Summit will help you to track your runs, set goals and stay motivated, share your location and connect to other devices.
All successful last mile challenge participants will be entered into a draw with a chance of winning the ultimate runner prize:
Entry into The Great North Run in 2020 (the 40th staging of the event), a Garmin Forerunner 645 Music, £100 voucher for Sports Shoes, and 1 year free subscription to Strava Summit!
The Last Mile segment of the Simplyhealth Great Bristol Half Marathon is already live on Strava so you can try it out now. Remember, your last mile just needs to be faster than your other 12, so if it’s a warm day, or you’re just not feeling it, listen to your body and adjust your target so that’s its right for you.
