When you enter a virtual challenge, you will go through a screen that displays the distance goal, timeframe, and acceptance rules.
Each Virtual Challenge has its own fixed distance goal, and it can not be changed.
There are 2 sets of options to customize which exercises can be accepted.
1. Allowed Activities
Only walk, run & hike (no manual input) - The challenge only accepts these 3 types of activity and they must be GPS-tracked. Manual input WON'T be accepted. If you are not familiar with GPS tracking, we recommend that you choose "All exercise types" instead.
All exercise types (include manual input) - Choose this if you wish to include manual submission or other exercise types such as bike, wheelchair, kayak, etc.
2. 24x7 Pedometer Activity
The Pacer app automatically tracks your daily steps and converts them to distance, no matter whether you are running, shopping, or doing housework. You can decide if you wish to include these distances in your challenge progress.
Yes - You'll find it convenient as you basically go on with your life and the progress automatically updates.
No - Choose this option if you prefer not to count your daily chores as "real" exercise, and these auto-generated distances won't be added to your challenge progress.
Change the acceptance rules
You can change the rules as your like before the challenge is ended or finished. The change will take effect immediately and is retrospective throughout the entire timeframe.
To change the rules, tap the "cog" at the bottom right (Virtual Adventure Challenges) or tap the "3 dots" at the upper right (other Virtual Challenges), then you will see the option "change rules".
