You must complete your chosen distance in a single run/walk within the dates of the event.
You can run anywhere in the world as long as you can get a GPS signal.
To use the automated syncing, you must use a GPS running app and have it linked with Strava and your RFTW profile.
Your activity must be set as a ‘run’ or 'walk'.
If you do not use Strava, you can use our 'Add Run' feature to upload evidence from your GPS based app.
Treadmill runs are allowed and must be uploaded manually using the 'Add Run' feature.
Pedometers are not allowed.
No cheating - Use of any form of transport other than your own body is not allowed. RFTW will check the results after each event and prizes will not be awarded to runners who are quicker than Olympians.
You cannot change distance category once you have entered the event.
