Tracking your Will of Iron challenge
You can track your Will of Iron challenge in a number of ways. It’s a virtual event so we expect you to take responsibility for this yourself, which means you can choose a solution that works for you. Whether it’s using fitness apps, GPS watch, counting lengths or plotting your route on a map the old fashioned way – it’s up to you.
Remember, we trust you!
Once you’ve completed your challenge we ask you to submit your final times on our website. This is so we can give you a virtual high five and make sure you get your finishers certificate.
We have also been lucky enough to partner with DisciplineXgames. This technology allows you to use existing fitness apps to track your Will of Iron challenge.
