A team can be as little as 1 runners or as big as your imagination.
You will register as an individual. During the registration process, you can select which team you want to be added to or create your own.
There are 2 types of teams:
- Open teams: presented by our main sponsor Runners on Fire. If you do not have a team you can be part of one of these teams. There are teams of 10 and 20 runners.
- Private teams: These teams can be set up by any participant and they set a password. You need the password for that specific team to be able to join.
Each team will have access to a unique URL where they can add their daily kilometers and see a spreadsheet of their progress, and special links to the landmarks they will see along the route.
Q: Do I need a GPS watch/tracker, or Strava? Will I need to show my watch or device for proof of running?
A: You can use one if you wish, but you don’t need one, and you can’t link to the log in site with it. You are on the Honor System. There are no additional awards given for running faster. Sometimes this isn’t practical. Don’t worry! if you miss a day, just add it to the next day(s).
ENTER ONLY ONE TIME FOR A GIVEN DATE: IF YOU RUN MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY make sure your entry is the TOTAL of the miles you covered for the day. For example, Jim “runs” 4 km in the morning and enters the mileage in the system, then does 3km later in the day. Jim should enter 7km for the day.
There will be an overall results page that will be updated daily.
