#ICASWellTogether – ICAS runs* around the world (*and walks, wheels, cycles and swims).
We’re starting a collective wellbeing journey, encouraging ICAS Members and Students of all fitness levels to take time out and combine their local efforts for a virtual trip around the world.
Starting a wellbeing journey
As we all know, life during a pandemic isn’t easy. We also know that it’s important to take time out, step away from our screens and get outside for some fresh air and exercise. That’s why we’ve launched #ICASWellTogether, a collective wellbeing journey for ICAS Members and Students, of all fitness levels, to combine their local efforts for a virtual trip around the world.
Together we can do it
The target distance from CA House in Edinburgh around the world and back again is 40,075km – that’s less than 2km per Member and everything counts, from morning dog walks to lunchbreak outings and weekend epics (coronavirus restrictions permitting, of course).
Join your local Area Network Club
To complete the challenge, we’re using the Strava app and splitting up into ICAS Area Network Clubs, so you can virtually connect with CAs in your area by logging your favourite local walks, runs, cycles, swims and routes.
Strava is free to join and use and works with iPhone, Android and a range of GPS watches and devices. Your activities will be recorded by the app, shared with your Club-mates and count towards the cumulative ICAS total distance travelled.
Share, encourage and inspire
Along with connecting on Strava, you can encourage and inspire your fellow CAs by sharing your hints and tips for keeping active, and photos of everything from small first steps to marathon efforts. Just pick your favourite channel and use the hashtag #ICASWellTogether.
Give something back
Our fundraising option means that you can choose to raise cash for a good cause along the way. We’ve partnered with two charities, the ICAS Foundation, which supports academically talented young people from disadvantaged communities into university, and SCABA, the Scottish Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association.
Follow the links below to join your local ICAS Area Network Club on Strava. If you’re not already using the Strava app, select the option to sign up – it only takes a minute and it’s free to join and to use the app.
Not sure which UK Area Network you belong to? Check the postcodes that apply to each Network in the drop-down lists below.
If there’s not a Club specific to your region, join the one that’s closest or, for inspiration, the one in the area where you’d like to be exercising.
