How do I update and track my kilometres?

Any GPS enabled devices like fitness wristbands or watches will do the trick. We
have linked up with Strava, Fitbit and mapmyfitness to automatically sync with your
fundraising page and add to your kilometres each time you record an activity.
If you’re not already connected with these devices, you can always use your
Smartphone and download Strava, Fitbit or mapmyfitness to get started.
Once installed and your account has been created with your preferred app, login to
your 42K Your Way profile page and head to the 'My Fitness Activity' tab. Here you
can now connect up to your preferred fitness app. Click on the icon of the app you'd
like to connect - this will ask you to login and authorise us to access your fitness
account.
You're now connected!
When using your fitness app, remember to create a new activity through your app
and stop when you're finished each time - this will ensure your kilometres are
recorded onto your 42K Your Way page.
You can also manually add an activity through the 'My Fitness Activity' tab too.

My activity is not showing on my page. What do I do?

1. Ensure that your fitbit, Strava or MapmyFitness app is synced with your 42K
Your Way account
2. Start and Stop each activity from the app
3. Allow 24hours for your activity to appear on the dashboard.
If this is still not appearing you can manually add your km to your dashboard via the My Fitness Activity Tab.
