How does the Garmin 4Miler Challenge work?

Running at lunch can liven up a slow workday, provide an original topic of discussion around the coffee machine, give you something in common with your desk mates and help you get fit without having to find time outside of work.

With a Garmin Forerunner GPS, you can concentrate on covering your four miles while your sportswatch tells you how fast, how far and even where you are. It’s no more complex than that. Once you’re back at the office, you can even transfer your training stats to Garmin Connect to see how you’re improving and watch your colleagues’ scores roll in.

So ditch your desk, dust off your joggers and get in gear for the Garmin #4miler.

1. Gear up with Garmin Connect

Go to connect.garmin.com and sign up for a free account. This online training community lets you review, relive and replay your runs, track your team’s performance and see at a glance how the whole office is shaping up.

2. Inspire your colleagues

Choose a memorable username and password and share them with everyone taking part. Then you can each save your training data to the same place, watch the results roll in and keep track of your #4miler front runners.

3. Share your results

From logging on to your team leaderboard to publishing the winning times on your company intranet, Garmin Connect offers many ways for you to tell the world who’s winning in your workplace. Export your endeavours to your blog, social network or twitter and race against the best efforts in the office in real-time (Virtual Partner-enabled sportswatch required).
