    I haven't. But that's cool. And I like the challenge they are offering.

    This STINKS since T-day is the ONE day I was planning a little reprieve and traveling.:eek: Now I may need to start my trip earlier and find a spot to do a little run because I can't have a blank badge littering my Achievements tab. :mad:

    Also I dislike 5K.:rolleyes::(

    Does that mean we'll get a Christmas Day challenge, or Boxing Day one? lol

    Did it show up on your :apple:Watch/Activity app? I would think it is US only.

    I got the notification this morning. Thankfully my gym will be open Thanksgiving morning so I'll be able to get a good workout in before I stuff myself!

    Hopefully enough people will get off their ass and do it so Apple does more of these
    What a great way to get people motivated

    I did not plan to run this Thursday, but I might have to get out there an extra day this week to earn the badge.

    If I complete the run using Nike running club on Apple watch will I earn the achievement/badge?

    Why do you dislike the 5K? I run a 10-12K every other day, so a 5K is an easy badge for me. :D

    Too short of a distance for a run. If I'm going to all the trouble of putting my shoes on and getting through the worst mile (the first) why stop at 3. ;)

    No, you should use Indoor Walk. Why would you even want to use Other for a treadmill walk?

    It should trigger the award. I used the NIKE Running app and I received the award for my first run within the Activity app.
    --- Post Merged, Nov 21, 2016 ---
    I want to know if I can split activities and receive the award. If I go to the gym and workout, and do elliptical and a run or a run and a bike, will it count. Or does the challenge have to be with just 1 activity.

    I still haven't received anything on my watch or phone. Is this exclusive to AW2 owners?

    Edit: never mind. I got the badge on the activity app but didn't get any notifications. Hmm

    Because if I use anything other than "other" I don't get credit for my exercise. Even if I do 3mph at a 7 deg incline I still get 10 minutes of credit for an hour's worth of work.

    Saw it yesterday, was planning on a 5k run anyway so why not get the award for doing it.

    Mine showed up at 6:00 am this morning on my AW SO running WOS3.1. The screenshot I posted above is from my Watch, but it is also listed on my achievements page.

    This is really neat. I'm hoping they do more things like this.

    This is my very first message to this forum-- please forgive me acting like a total newbie! ;o) I really, really could use some help. I'd love to accomplish this unique badge for Thanksgiving! Would someone kindly tell me how to find this particular announcement? For the life of me, I cannot find any notification anywhere on my watch (AW02) nor my iPhone Activity App. I do confess a wee bit of ignorance, so please educate me how to find (and perhaps activate) this badge so that I may be able to earn it on Thanksgiving Day. Thanks so much in advance! ;o)
