Hey! Durham Community! Are you ready to test your fitness? 2020 was a challenging year for us all, so let’s make sure we start 2021 off right. For the first time ever, we will be launching a 6 week Durham alumni fitness challenge.

Aim – no matter who you are, where you’re at, whether you’re currently very active or are completely inactive, the aim is for each of us to do a little more to get a little fitter together.
Time – 11 January to 19 February 2021, challenges will be released every Monday and Thursday.

• 2 workouts per week for 6 weeks, starting on Monday 11 January 2021
• Each Monday a new bodyweight challenge will unlock, and every Thursday will be a 3k or 5k run, walk, roll, cycle, cardio or time-based challenge
• Baseline fitness test will take in week 1, and we will test again in the final week to see how far we’ve come
• Required equipment: stopwatch or timer for Monday, and optional smartphone with Strava (recommended) or other distance tracking app for Thursday. Make sure to join the Durham University Alumni Strava Club
• Workout details will be emailed twice a week. Once you complete the work, you can upload your scores/times/reps using the form in the email. Points will be given based on participation and overall ranking.
• Each workout will include a recommended warm-up and pre-workout mobility
