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.

Do I need a Strava account?

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.

What is the donations leaderboard for?

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.

What is a virtual running event?

A virtual running event is a running event in which you sign up for online that can be run anywhere in the world at any time of day. We offer various styles of events that range from having a designated time period for completing your chosen running distance to completely open events that you can choose to complete at any time. You can either use a GPS running app, and more specifically, have a Strava account, to link your runs to RFTW or you can manually upload your activities using our 'Add Run' feature. See the 'How It Works' page for details.

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.

How do I view my ranking?

You will be able to see every participant's results once they have completed their run. At the end of the event dates, no more runs will be added so this will be the final results table. You can then use the filters to view by sex, location, age and running distance.

Where is the event?

These are virtual events. You can run anywhere in the world but please make sure you’re safe. Even if you know you are going on a summer holiday, you can still compete in the event by running on the beach or walking through the mountains. You just have to make sure you run the full distance that you sign up for within the designated dates (UK time) if it is a Solo or Challenge event.
