Solo Events - You can choose a distance to complete in one activity (like a real event), within the event dates, to complete these events.
Challenge Events - You can accumulate as many activities as you want within the event dates to reach your chosen target.
Open Events - These events have no timeframe. You can sign up and complete these any time you want. They can be either single activity or accumulation style. Please check the event info.
Free Events - These are practice events for you that are completely FREE and there will still be a reward!
You need to track your activity with a GPS app. We don't accept pedometers as we create leaderboards for each event and will need a proper distance and time saved.
If you use Strava, you can link your account to RFTW and your activities will sync automatically to your active events. If you use a different app, you can upload your activities by clicking 'Add Run' on our website and inputting the distance/time and image of your activity. We will give this a check before syncing it to your active events.
Please check the FAQs for how the syncing works in more detail.
We have partnered with two fantastic charities for 2021. 10% of your entry fee to RFTW events will be raised and split between these two charities. Please check the Charities page for more information about the charities and how much has been raised so far.
We will also have an individual event for each of our charities in which 25% of your entry fee will be donated to them.
If you work for a charity and wish to partner with RFTW in 2022, please contact us for more information.
