The Escape Plan

Escape Button

Break free from everyday distractions and commit to a proud September. The Escape Plan is simple, but it ain’t easy: Be active 5 days a week for 4 weeks. You’ll have to trade some screen time for some me time, some URLs for IRLs. That’s ok with us – we want to make tech that gives you a reason to get outside. Now you have 20.

The Escape Plan starts on September 2nd. It’s free to all, and all are welcome. Join now and plan your escape.

The Details

After you join the challenge, focus on your workouts and Strava will take care of the rest. Get moving for at least 15 minutes each day to stay in the game, and every week comes with two optional rest days.

For the first time, any of our 32 activity types will count! So now you can balance your hard days with cross-training adventures or chill yoga sessions. And we know some of you crushers will just be putting the hammer down – same sport, every damn day. That’s cool, too.
