You must accumulate your total chosen distance within the time and dates of the event. Please do not leave it to the last minute.
You can run/walk as many times as you want to accumulate all of your chosen distance.
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.
Your activity must be set to 'run', 'walk', 'treadmill' or 'virtual run'.
If you do not use Strava, you can use our 'Add Run' feature to manually upload your run from your GPS based app or treadmill.
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.
