Ready to Try Something New?  Samsung’s Firsts Never Stop Challenge Dares You to Go There

As the temperatures start to normalize — we won’t miss you, triple digits — runners across the country are starting to emerge from the air-conditioned gyms where they spent the last few months slogging out miles on the treadmill.

With cooler weather, less allergens and still fairly long daylight hours, September is the perfect time to start running — or set new running goals. The Samsung Firsts Never Stop – Run Edition challenge provides the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself and potentially achieve things you’ve never done before.

Samsung and Under Armour have collaborated to inspire you to push beyond your comfort zone and take on your own ‘Firsts.’ Join Under Armour’s Kyle Dietz, a former MMA-athlete-turned-trail-runner on a challenge that will celebrate individual running milestones.

Accomplishing something for the first time isn’t done every day, so it’s that much more rewarding to see your hard work pay off and finally conquer your goal. That’s why Samsung wants to reward MapMyFitness users who achieve “first” milestones along their running journey. When you sign up for the Samsung Firsts Never Stop – Run Edition challenge, you’ll receive badges for the first time you log running miles before 9 AM, the first 5K run logged and the first time you clock an average pace less than 10 minutes per mile (you speedster, you).

When you complete all three of these awesome accomplishments for the first time (or if we’re getting technical, for the first time in this challenge), you’ll be entered to win UA run gear, plus the Gear Fit2 Pro, Samsung’s newest fitness tracker. Best of all, the Gear Fit2 Pro offers the MapMyRun and MyFitnessPal apps directly on the device, so you can log workouts, meals and water consumption all from your wrist!


So what are you waiting for? Your first sub-10 minute mile is out there waiting for you!

But first (see what we did there?), you gotta sign up for the challenge! See you on the trail!
