100K IN MAY FAQ’S

No, how you make your way to 100km is up to you, we’re suggesting running, jogging, walking or cycling but you could scoot, skateboard or even unicycle. Use your imagination and most importantly have fun!

No, the goal is to do the 100km over the month of May. It is up to you how you take on this challenge; you can start with smaller distances and work your way up or stick to the same distance each day. It’s up to you.

There’s a couple options, many smart phones now include a steps tracker or you can use free apps such as Strava to record your daily distance. We will also send everyone that registers a pack which includes a page to print and write down your daily totals.  Don’t forget to post in the Facebook Group too and let us know how you’re doing!

As part of this challenge, you will be asked to set up a 100K in May Fundraiser on Facebook for The Door. This is the best place to post your distances weekly or after every run depending on your preference. These pages are linked to The Door and we’ll be able to see your progress.

Visit  https://www.facebook.com/fund/TheDoorStroud/ and wait for the pop-up to set up a page. Be sure to add 100K in May or #KeepTheDoorOpen  in your page title so we can easily find you and make double sure the end date is set to 1st June 2020.

Yes of course! We know not everyone does every type or even any social media. If you would like to take part but don’t have access to Facebook call Anne on 01453 756745 and she will be able to help.

Of course! Don’t let us stand in your way, setting a goal of 100km and then exceeding that goal would be fantastic! (Don’t overdo it though!)

Once you have joined the Facebook Group you will find a link to register your personal 100k in May challenge. This will take you to a short form. Once you have completed this form our team will be in touch by email with a 100K in May sponsorship pack.

A page to print out for recording your daily distances, details of how the money you are raising will be helping vulnerable young people and their families and a wonderful letter from our Directors
