About 6 months ago, we announced Custom Challenges on Virtual Strides, giving participants the ability to choose ANY distance they want for their virtual race and also the option to choose Biking counting Steps as the mode for their virtual race, instead of being limited to only running and walking. Due to popular demand, we are adding a new way for you to participate in our virtual races starting today: Swimming!
Swimmers now have the option to register for any of our virtual races and choose “Swimming” (under the Custom Challenge distance option) as their mode. When selecting a distance, registrants can select either yards or meters. So for example, you could set your goal to swim 100 yards, 5000 meters, or whatever distance you desire.
