You must complete your chosen distance in a single run/walk.
If you are already participating in another single run style 'Open' event then this event will only sync once you have finished the previous 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.
Pedometers or treadmill runs 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.
Please note that if you have signed up to multiple Virtual Major Marathon series events, only one will sync at one time.
