ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

What is the Healthy Harold Hundred?

Healthy Harold Hundred is an event that challenges you to move 5km a day for 20 days this May. How should you move? Any way you like! Walk, run, ride, swim… how you do your 5kms is totally up to you. Think 100kms isn’t challenging enough? There’s a 200km course with your name on it. Still not enough? See how you go with the 300km course!

Why should I take part in the Healthy Harold Hundred?

Because it’s good for you, and it’s good for others! By taking part in challenge, you’ll be increasing your physical activity to improve your own health and wellbeing - especially important after a very challenging time for us all recently. You’ll also be helping others by asking your friends and family to sponsor you with a donation towards Life Education Queensland’s respectful relationships programs to stamp out bullying and violence.

When is the Healthy Harold Hundred?

The challenge kicks off on Wednesday, 5 May 2021 and runs for 20 days until Monday, 24 May 2021. If you can’t participate on these dates, that’s okay - while we do encourage you to stick to this time so that you can share the experience others, you can really take part in the challenge at any time.

SIGNING UP

How do I register?

Registering to take the Healthy Harold Hundred challenge is simple.

Click here to register interest for 2022 and follow the prompts to get started!

Can I register more than one person under the same email?

In order to complete registration, participants require a unique email address.

We understand that not all kids have an email address so parents can easily register their children and manage their fundraising pages. All emails to children automatically get sent to the parent's account.

Think about work and personal emails that you may be able to use to register participants who don’t have their own accounts. 

If you are school looking to regsiter your students, or you still come up short, get in touch with our team for assistance by contacting us today.

Can kids register?

Yes! We encourage families to get involved. Children over 6 years can participate with your parents or school groups.

For health and safety reasons, children must be registered by their parents and have their fundraising pages managed by their parents too.

Children must always be moving under adult supervision.

Does it cost anything to take part?

Nope! It’s free to take part in the Healthy Harold Hundred. We do ask that you commit to fundraising for Life Education Queensland though, as it’s through these vital donations that real change can happen to stamp out bullying and violence. During your registration, you’ll be asked to set a fundraising target and consider donating to your own profile to kick things off (though this is completely optional).

Participants who do this usually go on to raise more money, so showing your friends how it’s done with a donation to your own page is a sure-fire way to make the most of your fundraising. If you’re stuck for other ideas, no problem! We’re here to help. We’ll send lots of helpful tips and tricks along the way. There are also loads of useful resources here to get you started.

Can my workplace get involved?

They sure can. Colleagues can be great team members, and also great supporters to boost your fundraising. The Healthy Harold Hundred is a fantastic challenge for workplaces to get involved in - advocating for extra physical activity to improve our own health and wellbeing, while raising money for an incredibly worthy cause.

Can I take part if I don't live in Australia?

Absolutely! The more the merrier.

How do I create a team?

TAKING PART

Do I have to cover 5km a day? What if I missed a day?

So long as you reach your target kilometers by the end of the challenge, how you get there is up to you! You may be able to do the same distance each day, or you may do a few more some days and have a day off later.

What if I want to do more than 100km?

Good for you! There are also 200km and 300km courses available. And if you want to do more than that, go for it! Maybe you could aim to do a couple of ‘laps’ of your chosen course. You can check out the course options here.

I'm not sure if I can reach 100kms - can I still take part?

Yep! Grab some mates, sign up as a team, and complete 100kms between you. To find out how to create or join a team, have a look at the FAQs in the section above.

Is there an alternative to moving 100kms?

Absolutely, we would still love for you to take part. If you are unable to do the distance for whatever reason, you can pick an alternative activity or distance that suits your abilities. We don’t really mind how you take part - the main thing is that you do take part.

I have already signed up, how do I access my fundraising page?

Please login to your fundraising page using the username and password you entered when you first registered.

Whoops! I've forgotten my login details.

Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone. Please get in touch with the Healthy Harold Hundred team and we'll get that sorted for you.

Can I get involved on social media?

Please do! We have set up a dedicated Healthy Harold Hundred Facebook page and Instagram page, and we’d love to hear from you on there. You can also share your fundraising page on your own socials by first logging in to your fundraising page, then selecting from the social icons you'd like to share to at the top of your page. Don't forget the hashtag! #healthyharoldhundred

Can I input my kilometres another way if I don't want to use an activity tracking app?

Yes! Simply login to your fundraising dashboard, select the 'My Fitness Activity' tab from your dashboard, then update your activity manually.

Are there any other rules I need to know?

Throughout the challenge it is important for all participants to follow current COVID-19 restrictions and instructions from Government. 

Your health and safety always comes first! Click here to see the latest COVID-19 directives and updates. 

Will my fitness app start tracking my activity straight away?

Fitness activity tracking will only be enabled at the start of the challenge on May 5. If you connect your app to your Healthy Harold Hundred profile prior to the event no kilometres will be logged until the challenge has officially commenced!

How do I update the distance I have covered during the challenge?

Your profile page includes your personal distance tally so you can track your distance towards your target. This is a great way to keep your friends updated on your workouts!

If you track your workouts with Fitbit, MapMyFitness or Strava your distances will automatically add to your tally.

Follow these steps to track your KMs automatically:

1. Download the FitbitStrava or MapMyFitness app and set up your account

2. Log in to your Healthy Harold Hundred account.

3. Under the heading ‘Connect your preferred Fitness app’, click your chosen app.

4. Follow the prompts to connect your account

5. When you next work out, select ‘start your workout’ in the app on your phone. Once you end your workout, save your workout and your distance will be published to the tally on your page the following day.

If you have synced your app already but it is not working, please log in and re-connect it.

When using Fitbit, you must ‘start’ an activity and save it. Your daily steps will not automatically add to your page. If you are having issues, try syncing through BOTH your Fitbit and the Fitbit app on your smartphone.

When using MapMyFitness, you must ‘start’ your workout, ‘stop’ your workout and then ‘SAVE’ your workout.

Your tally will be updated each day with the previous day’s distances.

Remember, you can manually add your kilometres to the tally in your My Fitness Activity tab of your profile after registering. This is a great option if you’re using a pedometer or a different method of tracking your distances.

Follow these steps to manually add your KMs:

1. Log in to your account and select ‘My Fitness Activity’

2. Under ‘Add activity’, enter the date and distance

3. The number of KMs will now appear on your fundraising page!

FUNDRAISING

Where do the funds go?

All funds raised will support the continued work of Life Education Queensland in delivering vital respectful relationships programs to school-aged children across the state. The experienced educators from Life Education travel to regional, rural and remote communities as well as metro centres to ensure that all children have access to the right education to stamp out bullying and violence, short and long term. 

Funds raised will allow us to get to even more Queensland schools in disadvantaged areas to deliver our respectful relationships programs.

How will I raise funds?

The golden rule of fundraising is: if you don’t ask, you won’t get. So the first step is to make sure that you are actually asking people to support you! We understand it’s not always easy to ask others for money, so we have compiled loads of fundraising tips and tricks you can check out here as well as heaps of ready-to-share fundraising resources. Once you get going, it becomes easier and easier, so the best thing to do is start today.

Not at all! You can start fundraising as soon as you’re signed up. Check out some helpful tips and tricks to get you started.

Are donations tax-deductible?
