Frequently Asked Questions

How do I manually upload an activity?

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 contact@runfortheworld.org.

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.

What is the profile level?

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.

Do I have to run?

No, you don’t have to run but you must track your activity as either a 'run' or 'walk' on your GPS app or use a treadmill. 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.

Is a step tracker allowed?

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.

How do I submit my run?

There are two options for submitting runs.

1. You don’t need to! The great thing about RFTW is that it is all automated. As long as you have linked a Strava account to your profile here, your run will automatically get uploaded.

2. You can manually upload evidence of your run/walk from other GPS apps by using our 'Add Run' feature. Just fill out the information about your run, upload a screenshot/image of your GPS based activity and we will check it and sync it for you.

On your profile, you will see the events that you have entered with a little bar at the top stating whether you have completed it yet or not. If yours does not indicate completion within 48 hours or by the end of an event, please email us at contact@runfortheworld.org.
