Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run on a treadmill?

Yes, we are now allowing treadmill runs to be synced directly from Strava and also allow manual uploads of treadmill runs with the uploaded image of the treadmill stats. Please do not cheat whilst using a treadmill such as hopping on and off as we are trying to motivate you to complete the full distance that you sign up for.

How do I link my Strava account?

If you have not linked your Strava account during registration, you will see an orange bar at the top of your page. Please click the link and follow the instructions. Otherwise, you can go to your Profile Settings - Linked Accounts and click on Connect for Strava.

How do I know when my run has been synced?

If you have linked a Strava account, once you have finished and saved your run, your results should take less than an hour to show up on the website. You can view your result either on the event results table that you signed up for or on your 'My Events' page. Please don't worry if it does not appear immediately, however if it has not appeared within 24 hours, please contact us at contact@runfortheworld.org and we will try to find out why.

If you are uploading your run manually, please allow up to 48 hours for us to check and sync to your events. If you cannot see the added distance on your event after this time, please contact us.

If your run means that you have completed an event, you will receive an email to state that you have completed the event and your medal will be sent out soon after. If you do not receive this email when you think that you should have completed an event, please contact us.

Note: If you are using the automated syncing with Strava and you think an activity has not been added to your event, please do NOT add the run manually until you have contacted us. this may result in your distance being added two times and we are unable to remove distance from your event.

How do I accumulate donations?

In order to accumulate donations from your family and friends, you will have to take note of your unique profile ID code. If you ask them to input this code, when prompted, during their donation, that donation will be added to your amount. You can share your unique profile ID code through social media so it is easy for everybody to help you raise as much money as possible.

Why isn't my event showing as completed?

If you are using the link with Strava: Normally, the link between the running apps is instantaneous, however occasionally it may take some time to link your activity from your chosen app to Strava and then again to RFTW. If the link has not been made within 24 hours due to any technological error, please contact us before uploading your activity manually at contact@runfortheworld.org.

If you have used the 'Add Run' feature: Please allow up to 48 hours for us to check your evidence and put it into the system to be added to your events. If, after 48 hours, your activity is not showing, this could be due to inputting the wrong distance or duration on the form so you can either try again or send us an email to find out.

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 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. Please check the individual event for more details.

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.

If I have missed one of the Wonders of the World Series months, can I still participate?

Yes, all past Wonders of the World events will become available as an Open event for you to complete in your own time. You can find these on the 'Open' events page.
