Strava makes tracking your next activity easy. Record your runs, rides and more, and see your performance stats on Strava as soon as you're done.
The YMCA of Central Kentucky recently created a Club on Strava, which includes a weekly leaderboard, filtered activity, discussion forum and group events – complete with routes and details. These can be recurring weekly rides or runs with the option to RSVP “I’m in” so you can know who to expect.
- Link up and share workouts with other YMCA of Central Kentucky members by joining our club.
- 5K Fridays – complete a run or walk of at least 3.1 miles each Friday + other fun weekly challenges.
- Opportunities to connect mind and body through regular meditations to do once per week during activities.
- Encourage each other by offering ‘kudos’ or words of encouragement to club members as they complete activities.
