Who can I invite to a Nike+ Challenge?
You can invite any of your Nike+ Friends on the list that appears when you tap Select Friends in the Challenge setup screen. To appear on this list, your friends need to be Nike+ Friends with you, and they need to be using the current version of the Nike+ Running App and have their Nike+ Privacy Settings set to Social (Friends) or Public (Everyone).
How does a Nike+ Challenge work?
As soon as you tap Send Invite, the friends you've selected will be sent an email invitation to your Challenge. They'll also receive a notification in their Nike+ Running App.
Your friends can accept the Challenge invitation any time before the Challenge starts. They cannot accept a Challenge invitation after the start date. If no invitees have accepted the Challenge by the start date, the Challenge will be cancelled.
Once the start date has arrived, it's on! All Nike+ mileage counts, including mileage recorded on other Nike+ devices, so long as it's synced to Nikeplus.com before the Challenge end date.
What happens when a Nike+ Challenge ends?
The Challenge is final on the designated end date, at midnight in the time zone of the Challenge creator. At that point, the standings are final. To ensure that you receive credit for all your mileage, make sure you sync all runs before the Challenge ends.
How does the Nike+ Challenge Rematch feature work?
Once you've created one Challenge, it's easy to use the Rematch feature to set up another Challenge with the same invitees. Just tap Rematch under the Challenge name in your Completed Challenges tab.
