The main difference between step-up and distance challenges is that there is no locked goal for the step-ups. Instead, each step-up challenge has a set of progressing targets, and, as you keep working through the challenge, you also keep hitting new targets.
At the end of the month, you can order a medal with the achieved distance engraved on it (and we are hoping to add additional types of awards in the future).
How can I see my site credits?
How does this affect you if you had joined a monthly challenge before the update?
How does this affect you if you had joined a distance challenge before the update?
Here is an example - you can see current challenge entry fee on the challenge card:
But you can also click through the award options and see corresponding prices:
And, of course, you might choose to go there, try it right away, and you'll probably notice there are not so many different awards except for the medals... This is all somewhat new as of November 2022, so we are working on adding more 😉
This is how we call challenges where there are multiple targets available. As you keep performing challenge activities, you will be unlocking new targets, and you will be able to see them on the challenge page:
(1) This is where you will see your achieved goal (assuming you have hit at least the very first target)
(2) You will see your current progress towards the next goal here
(3) Will show you the next available goal
Don't you worry, in each of our challenges we enough targets for even the most enthusiastic folks!
Your achieved goal will be engraved / printed there
You can go to "My awards" area, then add those medals to the cart, and proceed from there. Each medal / awards has an expiration date (which is currently set to about 75 days after the challenge "end date"). This means you can now combine multiple medals in the same order. Which will normally come with some savings on the shipping rates (although, this will probably make more sense for our EU/Canada/US/worldwide participants)
