So you like Strava Challenges? We have another for you! If you haven’t already, join the Sir Walter Running Strava club!
The 2023 Tour de Walter is off and running! We’ll announce a new challenge every Monday (or maybe Sunday night), and it will run through the following Saturday at Midnight. All of these are in celebration of the 2023 Sir Walter Miler, which will be held Friday, August 4th, back at Meredith. We’ll talk about these Strava Challenges of upcoming episodes of the Summer of Miles podcast, so make sure and subscribe!
2023 Tour de Walter – Stage 3: Art Museum Mile
What is it? We’re heading over to the Art Museum Park for a Mile in the woods and on the trail that’s mostly shaded! You’re only a few miles from Meredith and Raleigh Brewing in case you want to run from there!
Want to run with friends? Feel free to meet up Tuesdays at 7pm, just like the Pop Up Miles. No official start, so bring your own whistle!
Where is it? At the Museum Park at the North Carolina Museum of Art, which is located at 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607. The start is at the bottom of the hill on the greenway that heads to the bridge over 440.
Where is the start (and where do I run)? If you head down the hill and hang a right, it will start at the bottom where there’s a crossroads (see below).
Where do I finish? At the same place you started right before you hit the street!
When should I run? The segment is mostly shaded, but it’s been hot lately, so plan accordingly.
Where will I see the standings? See below and filter accordingly. And we’ll update the cumulative weekly!
Tag Sir Walter Running in your Strava comments so we know you meant to complete the segement (and weren’t just out for a jog)!
Update your Privacy Settings! If you want your run to register, you must go into your run in Strava after it populates and adjust the privacy settings on that run (to not hide the start and finish).
What do I win? We will have a random drawing for 2 Sir Walter Miler shirts!
What exactly is the Tour de Walter? Yes. This is the first of a 4 segment Challenge called the Tour de Walter, in honor of the Tour de France. Everyone that competes all 4 segments will get a Tour de Walter koozie, and the Male and Female with the lowest overall time will get VIP seating at the 2023 Sir Walter Miler.
