In a ploy to get people moving during quarantine, the Ministry of Youth and Sports will launch a 30-day sports challenge this August through the Strava app.
Countless ‘workout at home’ videos have kept some of us active in our apartments, while others have melded with the furniture. Whether you want to split up with the couch or prove how buff you got, you might like to know that the Ministry of Youth and Sports is launching a 30-day sports challenge, running from August 1st to August 30th.
Participants need to choose one of the following challenges to complete over the course of the month: Walking (25KM to 30KM), Running (50KM or 100KM), Biking (100KM or 200KM), Kayaking (15KM or 25KM), Motorcycling (1000KM) or Rolling a Wheelchair (25KM or 50KM). They must also pick a second sport of their choice. Progress will be recorded through the Strava app (which must be downloaded before you can participate), where you will be able to upload your personal data at your own pace.
To register, you have to be over 16 years old and need to input your personal data via the registration link, and upload a scanned copy of your national ID. If you’re currently not residing in Egypt or don’t have an Egyptian nationality, you would then need to upload a scanned copy of your passport. Once you download the Strava app (available on the App Store and Google Play), you will need to create a public account, join the group for the challenge at tinyurl.com/challengestrava and wait for an invitation.
