With Challenge Hound, you can create distance challenges, elevation challenges, duration challenges (log a specified amount of time), activity count challenges (log a specified number of activities), and ranking challenges (log as much as possible to climb the ranks).
Challenge Hound supports individual challenges, as well as team challenges. In individual challenges, each participant completes the full challenge goal. In team challenges, the team's activities are aggregated to complete the challenge goal together.

Virtual Races

With Challenge Hound you can create virtual races. Participants can join a virtual race challenge, then manually enter times, or use Strava to track the run. If Strava is used, Challenge Hound will automatically enter the participants best effort. For example, if a participant joins a 5k race and runs more than 5k, Challenge Hound will only import the fastest 5k segment from that run. If a participant runs the 5k more than once during the challenge duration, Challenge Hound will only post the fastest time to the race results. Challenge Hound supports the following running race types:
  • 400 Meter Sprint
  • Half Mile
  • One Kilometer
  • One Mile
  • Two Mile
  • Five Kilometer (5k)
  • Ten Kilometer (10k)
  • Fifteen Kilometer (15k)
  • Ten Mile
  • Twenty Kilometer (20k)
  • Half Marathon
  • Thirty Kilometer (30k)
  • Marathon
  • Fifty Kilometer (50k)

Map Based Virtual Challenges

Add an interactive map to any Challenge Hound distance challenge and track the challenge progress along a virtual route. With team challenges, a single team icon will progress along the map route. With individual challenges, each participant will progress along the route.
