Anyone else get the alert about the Thanksgiving Day challenge badge?
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. 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.
Also I dislike 5K.
Does that mean we'll get a Christmas Day challenge, or Boxing Day one? lol
Did it show up on your Watch/Activity app? I would think it is US only.
Haven't got my watch yet, but maybe see something during December if so I guess...
Just got the alert, looks like you'll find me running on Thanksgiving day
Need to get this special acheivement and those Messages stickers
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
Good thing I already a 5K turkey trot race planned for Thursday morning!
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.
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.
Can I put it on other and just walk on the treadmill for 3.1 miles?
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.

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.
can't find it on mine, S0 3.1, oh well still going to get those circles filled up anyways
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)
