Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run on a treadmill?

We do not accept treadmill runs as they are not an accurate reading from your watch/phone app. We only accept a run/walk activity that has used a GPS signal to track it.

I can't get a GPS signal, will it work?

Unfortunately, Strava automatically thinks you have run on a treadmill if you cannot get a GPS signal. So, if your signal stops during your run or you cannot get any signal at all, please email us at contact@runfortheworld.org and send us a screenshot of your run.

What is the difference between a Solo, Challenge, Open and Free event?

A solo event is a one-off running event in which you have to complete your chosen distance in one run within the time period stated for the event.

A challenge event is an accumulation running event whereby you can run as many times as you want within the time period and all distances get added to your total until you reach your chosen distance. Challenge event rewards will be linked for the duration of the series. The first series is the 'Wonders of the World' from 1 July '19 until 30 June '20.

An open event is can be similar to both solo and challenge events, however you can sign up anytime and complete your chosen distance in as much time as you need as there are no specific dates.

A free event is a practice event in the same style as a solo event, however there is no entry fee. You will also receive a reward for completing your run.

Is there a limit to how many events I can join at once?

No, you can join as many events as you want. If the dates of any Solo and Challenge events overlap, the run that you sync will be counted towards all events. Example - If you enter a month-long Challenge Event (1 - 31 July) and a Solo Event (12-14 July), your run on 13 July will count as your Solo run and be added to your Challenge total.

Open style events sync with their own system in which only one Open event of a single run type and one Open event of an accumulation type will sync at a time, no matter how many Open events you have signed up to. This is to make sure that you get value for your money and to keep you motivated for longer! :)

How do I view my ranking?

You will be able to see every participant's results once they have completed their run. At the end of the event dates, no more runs will be added so this will be the final results table. You can then use the filters to view by sex, location, age and running distance.

Do I have to run?

No, you don’t have to run but you must track your activity as either a 'run' or a 'walk' on your GPS app. You can also walk/hike/skip/jump if you want to. However, you cannot cycle or track your run on a motorbike/car. We will pick out anomalies from the speed of the run and we will not allow that user to get the prize. Remember, you are only cheating yourself.
