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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com.
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.
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.
This is for an extra competition. At RFTW, we would like to raise as much money for different charities as possible. We will provide extra prizes for those who accumulate the most money for each event.
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.
No. Step trackers are not an accurate tracker of distance. As much as we would live you to exercise as much as possible, as the distance is not accurate, we can't put a step tracker activity on the same leaderboard as fully tracked activities.
