Good morning #TeamFitness we have a big week ahead of us. Here are the Rules for the upcoming #NatalieChallenge. The challenge has started today and we already have a handful of runners who have clocked in today’s distance. The WhatsApp group has grown and it now has 40 members. If you would like to read on the previous challenge please click on this here.
As you already know we will be running predetermined distances for 5 days;
Friday 6 km
Here is how we will be scoring the challenge to determine a winner.
We will use a simple points system based on how you place in a day. Depending on the number of runners. Say if we have 20 runners; 1st place gets 20 points, 2nd place gets 19 and so on until 20th place who gets 1 point. If you do not run you will be awarded 0 points.
As the days progress points will be added in a log system and most points is awarded 1st place and so on.
2. Bonus points
Over the course of the challenge bonus points will be awarded as follows;
3. Completion bonus
5 points will be awarded for completing the challenge (5 days) to everyone who does.
4. Improvement bonus
5 points will be awarded to the 3 individuals with the most improved paces measured as the biggest difference between your first day pace (min/km) versus your fastest pace thereafter.
5. Continuous Improvement bonus
10 points will be awarded to any individual who improves their pace on each day. As in they go faster everyday for days 2, 3, 4 & 5.
6. Daily climber
From day 2 to 5, the individual with the biggest climb measured as difference between previous day ranking and current day ranking (overall points log) will be awarded 3 bonus points. Where there is a tie all individuals receive 3 bonus points.
7. #RunWithFitnessBae Bonus
Any individual who posts their run on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #RunWithFitnessBae, #NatalieChallenge and #FitnessBae earns one extra point per day.
8. Fast Finisher bonus
If your last km in a particular run is your fastest km as measured by pace min/km, you are awarded an additional bonus point. One per person per day.
Bonus points will carry the same weight as ordinary points.
Penalties and disqualification
There will be NO penalties leveled on runners nor will people be disqualified or withdraw. Once you’re in you’re in.
Those are your rules everyone. Remember to have fun!
