From May 8 to 14, the Board of Directors of Latvian Sports Educational Institutions (LSIIDP) challenges all students of Latvian sports schools/clubs and invites them to participate in the remote competition "Walk&Hike&Run in SWIMproject". The main task of the challenge is to accumulate as many kilometers as possible by running, walking or hiking through the STRAVA application. The most dedicated and active participant, who has accumulated the most kilometers, will receive a Garmin Instinct 2 Solar smart watch as a prize. Two more lucky winners of such smart watches will be determined in a draw among participants whose "account" will have at least 15 km during the week. The challenge/remote competition is organized by the LSIIDP in the Erasmus+ project co-funded by the European Union "Sports with Meaning" (SWIM). The goal of the project is the use of digital technologies in the learning and training process, including competitions in professional and professionally oriented sports education.
