We have come full circle with our monthly virtual challenges, in May 2020 we kicked off the first virtual challenge in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and have been organising different challenges each month since. Now in May 2021 we are going to replicate our first challenge and set the bar at 100k to be walked throughout May!!
For all those who take part in our May Walking Challenge we will have a draw for some Siul Eile goodies!!
So what are you waiting sign up for the May Challenge now!! Best of all it is FREE to join
What you need to do is:
If you haven’t walked with Siul Eile before, register for free at https://siuleile.com/register
Download the Strava App and use this to record your walking activities. The app is very simple to use. Press record when you start walking and stop at the end. Then press finish to confirm you are finished and save. You also have the option of adding some photos of your trek before you save it, we have seen a fabulous variety of photos throughout the challenges with hidden gems, wildlife, nature and panoramic views.
Once you have downloaded the app, join our club Siul Eile Strava Club
To find the club you might have to search via the explore button at the bottom of your page. If you can’t find Siul Eile immediately search in the clubs section: Select Siul Eile for club name, Tipperary for Location, in the next tab select Other and finally Club Type select All. Any activity you then do will be attributed to the Siul Eile Strava club. Every km counts so please record all walks.

By selecting the above, people you do not know cannot follow you and see your activities. They must request permission to follow you. Privacy Zones allows you set up a 1km privacy zone around your house. That means the people who you have allowed to follow you, will not see where your activity has started or finished (They will not know where you live!). This can be an important function for most.
