    Past Tense

    Change to past tense without using the first person singular or plural, also avoiding personalizing.

    'Run up the stairs while starting the clock simultaneously.'

    Re: Past Tense

    I'm not a teacher but would suggest as follows:

    "They ran up the stairs having started the clock simultaneously".

    I'm not sure, however, whether you mean multiple clocks or a single one?
