We have two partnered charities for the calendar year of 2021. These are The Third Age Trust (U3A) and Anthony Nolan. The majority of our events will provide donations for our 'Charity Pot' which will be split equally between these two charities.
We will also have four events over the year that will separately raise money for different charities, linked to those events. All money raised in these events will be donated to the chosen charities.
The Third Age Trust is a limited company (number 01759471) and is a registered charity (number 288007) whose registered address is 156 Blackfriars Road London SE1 8EN.
Anthony Nolan is a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (company number 2379280) and a registered charity (number 803716/SC038827) whose registered office is at the Royal Free Hospital Pond Street London NW3 2QG and the trading company Anthony Nolan Trading Limited (company number 02511952) whose registered office is at the Royal Free Hospital Pond Street London NW3 2QG.
We check manual uploads regularly during the day (UK time) so they are usually accepted the same day as your upload. Once it has been accepted, it will then sync within an hour.
If it does not appear on your event after 48 hours, you may have made a mistake on the upload form. The most common mistake is writing the duration incorrectly. Please use the format hh:mm:ss as shown on the form. If you are not sure why your activity has not been added, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have linked your RFTW profile with your Strava account, please DO NOT upload your activity manually as this will mean your distance will be added twice to your event (if you are taking part in an accumulation style event).
If you don't think your run has been synced automatically through Strava, please contact us at email@example.com and we will have a look first before you do a manual upload.
Note: We cannot take activities off your profile/event if they have been added twice.
Desktop version - If logged in, you will see 'Add Run' on the titlebar or on any event page. Click 'Add Run', fill in your activity information and upload a screenshot/image of the activity you are submitting.
Mobile version - Click the blue menu button in the top right of your screen and you will see 'Add Run'. Fill in the information and upload a screenshot/image of the activity you are submitting.
Once submitted, the RFTW team will check for any errors and accept/reject the submission. Please allow up to 48 hours for this in case of a back log of submissions. If you see that your distance has not been added to your event within 48 hours, please contact us to find out why at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RFTW links with directly with Strava so when your run/walk activity is saved onto a Strava account, it will automatically appear on RFTW within 30 minutes or so. Once you have your Strava account linked, there is nothing else for you to do and it will make virtual running so much easier! Just sit back and watch your distance get added to your active events.
You can also upload your runs/walks from other GPS apps manually with our 'Add Run' feature if you don't want to go through Strava. Simply click the 'Add Run' tab and fill in the information about your run and it will sync to your profile within 48 hours.
A virtual running event is a running event in which you sign up for online that can be run anywhere in the world at any time of day. We offer various styles of events that range from having a designated time period for completing your chosen running distance to completely open events that you can choose to complete at any time. You can either use a GPS running app, and more specifically, have a Strava account, to link your runs to RFTW or you can manually upload your activities using our 'Add Run' feature. See the 'How It Works' page for details.
Your profile level depends on how many events you have completed, much like earning XP points on a video game. The more events on RFTW that you sign up for and complete, the higher your level will become.
