Runners tasked with best MILE for UA ALL OUT MILE in SABy Staff Writer 6 May 2022 | Categories: news
It’s that time of the year again where runners are asked to push for their best 1.6 km. The second UA ALL OUT MILE in SA is up and running, providing motivation, coaching, and a training plan for runners to run their fastest mile. Teams and individuals alike can take on the 30-day mission to train (with resources) with the ultimate goal to go ALL OUT for a mile just in time for Global Running Day on 5 June.
When registering for the UA All Out Mile (to be done here), participants gain access to training routines and workouts from UA's elite coaches, athletes, and human performance experts.
Registration will also automatically grant participants access to a free 3-month UA MapMyRun MVP membership where they will be able to log miles and access exclusive training plans and video tips throughout their journey to compete, according to Under Armour.
A training period during May leads to the UA All Out Mile competition period, where participants are encouraged to go for gold and run their fastest mile anytime between 1 - 5 June.
Participants’ results will automatically be sourced from UA MapMyRun and appear on the FitRankings leaderboard, where they can see how they stack up against runners from around the world. If you are in the top-3 males and top-3 females in each region, there are Under Armour prizes coming your way.
If you are looking to take part in the UA ALL OUT MILE, there are a few necessary steps.
- Sign up for UA MapMyRun and download the app to your phone if you’ve not done so yet.
- Sign into FitRankings over here.
- Link your UA MapMyRun account to FitRanking here.
- Track your runs using the UA MapMyRun app.
- Go full steam for your best run during 1 - 5 June.
If you own certain Under Armour running shoes, such as the recently released light and pacy UA Flow Velociti Wind 2, you’ll know the shoes will automatically track your run without the need for a smartphone.
“We are thrilled to have launched the Under Armour ALL OUT MILE in SA for the second year running. South Africa has a rich history of hosting some of the world’s most iconic events in the running arena and the response from South Africans to the mile campaign has been tremendous. The local market continues to lead the global campaign with the highest recorded sign-ups since its launch on 21 April. This is a testament to not only the mass appeal of the campaign, but Under Armour’s unwavering commitment to drive our runners in this region, regardless of their fitness level. In an ode to celebrate one of the toughest distances, UA will further equip runners with invaluable training recommendations and tips to help athletes measure their runs and gauge their progress. It’s going to be exciting to watch it unfold and we’re hoping that South African’s continue to light up the leaderboard.” says MD at Under Armour SA Darren Cooke.
