    Just finish a short 1 mile walk into the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area behind my house. Did an 11 mile run yesterday so this was just to get the badge. Oddly I wanted a map but my iPhone didn't map it and this is the 2ed time I had walked this route wanting a map.:( May do it again JUST to get a map.

    I'm going for a walk on the beach shortly. Yesterday, I did a 40 minute walk but it only counted six minutes. I am prepared to use my third party app today!

    nice
    Nice Pictures, they should do the badge for all "holidays/special events" to motivate everyone to get their work out.

    Don't get why it's not available here in Europe. We have celebrated our moms today as well

    OK - for the last time - Go to your Watch App on your phone - go to General, then Language and Region - change from Denmark to USA - power off phone - power back on and check that it's still on USA - go out for the mile walk/run and get your badge - you still have time. Once you have the badge you can change back to Denmark - your welcome:):)

    Half a mile up the beach. Half a mile back. Got my achievement.

    I don't understand though, hope I still only got six minutes of exercise credit.

    Earlier today, I paired one of my watches to another iPhone and went out for the walk to get the Mothers day award. When I paired that same watch back to the iPhone I usually use for my daily walks, it instantly gave me the award on that iPhone as well even though the rings aren't even close to complete. I think it's a bug because that shouldn't have happened. The two iPhones I have used in the past always keep the achievements separate. When I get one on one watch/phone, it never shows on the other and it's the way it should work.

    The problem is not all countries celebrate it on the same day, we had Mother's Day on 26th March here in the U.K.

    Totally agree - we all have (had) mothers - should be a world wide badge.

    We're not American though, so not so many F's are given. Same with the Thanksgiving one, why did we not get a Christmas one, or Boxing Day one to get us off the sofa after eating so much?

    Thank you. She was an amazing woman--there's a hole in the universe without her.

    It's good that Apple is starting to do more of these. Still, I want more. Why have they only added these special occasion challenges? They need to build out the achievements more. Did you just complete your first 5K, marathon, etc? That should have a badge. I also want them to expand the social aspects of the activities more. I want to issue challenges to my friends, see all of their achievements, etc.
