About

Wolves on the Move is an activity-based group for all members of the Lakehead University Community. Each week a different challenge or contest will be posted to help motivate members of the club to stay active and engage with each other. This club is appropriate for individuals of all skills and abilities, and ages!

Beginning on September 27, participants will receive a weekly email with a challenge or contest.

They will be a part of a community through Strava Clubs where they can meet other Thunderwolves, get motivated, and compete for the Leaderboard Spots!

This program is open to current students, incoming students, staff, faculty, and alumni from either Campus. Sign up by September 25th!

FAQ

A: Yes, in order to fully participate in the community aspect of Wolves on the Move, a Strava Account is necessary. You can create a free Strava Account here: https://www.strava.com/register/free.

Please note it is not necessary to purchase any of the subscriptions associated with Strava to participate in Wolves on the Move

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
