    Are you participating in the Thanksgiving Day Activity challenge?

    Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and with the promise of a plethora of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and uncomfortable family dinner conversation (caught ya off guard with that one, didn't I? STAY ON YOUR TOES. THANKSGIVING IS A BATTLEFIELD OF TABLE POLITICS AND AWKWARD TOPICAL SMALL TALK), you're more than guaranteed to eat to much and potentially hate yourself afterwards.

    Apple has recognized that Thanksgiving isn't normally the time most people want to get up and work out, so for those who
    Activity Challenge:
    This Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, earn a special achievement by completing a walk, run or wheelchair workout of at least 5K (3.1 mi). Once you complete your 5k, you'll get a super special medal and the knowledge of knowing that you're better than 84% of other people who stuffed their face with, well, stuffing.

    CONTEST: Because iMore loves some good ol' fashioned competition, we've decided to up the ante a bit and offer 5 $50 Apple gift cards (or iMore Store gift cards for our international readers!) to 5 awesome people who participated in the Thanksgiving Day Activity challenge!

    All you have to do is Tweet us, post on this thread, or tag us on Instagram to prove that you actually completed the challenge and you'll be automatically entered in a raffle to win one of 5 $50 gift cards. Pretty awesome, hey?

    I did my run this morning. Don't have an Apple Watch but I did bring along my iPhone and used the Nike+ Run Club app to track my run which is also synced to the Health app. I don't know where to look for this achievement. Help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Finished my run initially and the app I used (mapmyrun) recorded the workout in the health app but I didn't get credit for the challenge. So I had to use the workout app on the watch and run again. So over 6 miles today, lol

    Had to do it twice too. NRC didn't trigger the achievement. So 10K in the snow.
    Now the IOS app gives an error when I try to upload the photo. Tweet completed. Good luck everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

    Anyone else having issues with the thanksgiving badge? I completed a 3.1 mile indoor walk and didn't get the badge, I'll have to do it again later tonight then, or just keep it running all day.

    EDIT: Second attempt got it
