Event Location: 

The It's Your Move Crew are running back our summer-long challenge to log 100 hours of physical activity but we've added a new wrinkle- not only will we be tracking your progress, we'll also be tracking which faculty or department is leading the way!

If 100 hours is too rich for your blood- don't worry we'll be celebrating those who hit 25, 50 and 75 hours over the course of the summer. 

Once you've signed up, you'll receive a link to our Strava Group. We will provide weekly updates, encouragement and resources to help you hit your goals and you can connect and cheer on your fellow Thunderwolves. 

This program is open to current students, incoming students, staff, faculty, and alumni from either Campus. All students who hit milestones will receive Student Health and Wellness and Campus Rec Swag and the department/faculty who logs the most time/participant will be get a prize as well! Human Resources will have a prize fo the first staff member to hit 100 Hours! 


  1. Sign up before June 1st and join the It's Your Move Strava Group
  2. Log your activities into Strava either manually or by syncing your fitness tracker or smartwatch
  3. We track your progress and notify you when you hit milestones
  4. Get moving! 


Q: Do I need a Strava Account?

A: Yes, in order to fully participate in the community aspect of It's Your Move, a Strava Account is necessary. You can create a free Strava Account here:

Please note it is not necessary to purchase any of the subscriptions associated with Strava to participate in It's Your Move Challenges.

Q: Do I need to use my phone or a GPS Tracking Device?

A: No! A GPS Tracker is not necessary to participate, as you can manually input your runs onto Strava using these instructions if you prefer to run without a GPS tracker or phone.

Q: What kind of activities can I upload to Strava?

If you are using the Strava mobile app to record an activity, you'll notice that the list of activity type options isn't a comprehensive list of all available activity types supported on Strava. At this time, the Strava mobile app cannot record indoor or stationary activities so activity types that aren't typically GPS-based are excluded from the list. 

If you do not see the outdoor activity type you'd like to record, you can always record using one of the currently listed sport types and edit the activity type after uploading. Lastly, you can always upload a manual entry and select any sport types from the list of currently supported activity types.

Once any activity is uploaded or synced to Strava, you can edit the activity to change the sport type to any of the following options:

  • Ride
  • Run
  • Swim
  • Walk
  • Hike
  • Alpine Ski
  • Backcountry Ski
  • Canoe
  • Crossfit
  • E-Bike Ride
  • Elliptical
  • Handcycle
  • Ice Skate
  • Inline Skate
  • Kayak
  • Kitesurf Session
  • Nordic Ski
  • Rock Climb
  • Roller Ski
  • Row
  • Snowboard
  • Snowshoe
  • Stair Stepper
  • Stand Up Paddle
  • Surf
  • Virtual Ride
  • Virtual Run
  • Weight Training
  • Windsurf Session
  • Wheelchair

Please be aware that most of Strava's features are currently only available for our three core activity types, riding, running, and swimming.
