Data Submission FAQ
Do I need to use a mobile app or GPS watch to participate?
Using a mobile running app or GPS watch is not mandatory, but is strongly recommended
You may submit your daily run data distance and time just by entering that information on the website or mobile app. However, such data submissions without activity proof will not be counted towards public leaderboards and reports for the event. It will however show in your personal run logs and dashboard and will be counted as valid run entry for your event result.
Only runs submitted using appropriate activity link will be considered for public leaderboards and reports, as well as for any rankings.
Only runs submitted using appropriate activity link will be considered for digital achievement scorecard. However, all participants will receive the event finisher certificate.
Which mobile apps can I use to submit proof of my activity?
You may use any mobile fitness app which has following details of your activity available as publicly visible data which rest of the participants should also be able to see (it should not be a private activity)
– activity distance
– activity pace
– activity km or mile splits
– activity map
Also, your fitness app should be able to share all the above info as a public activity link or URL which anyone can click to open and view those details.
Some of the supported apps include Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo, MapMyRun, MapMyRide.
Some apps do not support sharing of public activity data in the form of a link and are hence unsupported. Examples of such apps are Nike Run Club, Runtastic, Apple Health, Fitbit, Amazfit. Some such apps however support export of the activity data to other apps like Strava, in which case you will require setting up such export and then submitting the exported Strava data.
How do I record and submit my run data?
Data submission: You can submit your run data directly on our website or HDOR app after logging in to your account with your credentials. You will need to submit your run distance and time. To be counted for event leaderboard, reports and rankings, you must also submit the run activity link.
Activity Link: Activity link is a URL or website link which has details of your recorded run activity, including date, time, distance, splits, pace, etc (see this for details). You can find and share or copy activity links from your running app or from the website for the app or GPS watch. You must ensure that all your activity links are public so that other event participants and event admin can view and verify your activity data.
Manual entries: Activities without any data proof, not recorded using any mobile app or GPS device are allowed, but will not be considered for any event leaderboard, reports or rankings. A maximum of 20 km distance for a day may be submitted with such a manual entry. As an example, if a participant submits 30 days run data using manual entry and 70 days run data using valid activity links, he/she would be considered to have run all 100 days from results perspective, but only 70 days data would be reflected in event leaderboard, reports and rankings.
Running apps to use: To be eligible for leaderboard, reports and rankings, participants must run using a supported GPS running app (refer to supported apps article for details), or a GPS watch. Not all running apps provide a public activity link and hence may not be used if that is the case. Some of our recommended apps are: Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo, MapMyRun, Garmin Connect, TomTom Sports.
Automatic run data import: We support automatic import of your running app data if you have connected your HDOR account with your Strava account from the Connected Apps section on website. If you do not use Strava app, many apps, GPS watches and websites allow exporting recorded activity to Strava, something you can explore and consider if you do not want to manually submit each run data.
Combining GPS activities using tools: All submitted runs must be a single recorded GPS activity. Multiple activities are not allowed to be combined into one activity using online tools and then submitted.
Public race data submission: You can also submit link to your finish timing from any public organized races (like Mumbai Marathon, etc) which use timing chip and have your event results online on a unique page with a unique URL or link.
Treadmill runs: Treadmill runs recorded using GPS watches or apps and for which you have a public activity link which shows distance, time, pace, and splits will be acceptable for submission.
For step by step data submission process, refer to our website support page.
Can I submit data for past dates?
Older date data submissions are allowed for up to 10 days in the past, including the date of run (except when the event is over, in which case submission has to be completed within 3 days of event finish, i.e. by Aug 5th). Example, Jun 15th run data may be submitted latest by Jun 24th. Data submission beyond these prescribed time limits will not be accepted. It is participant’s responsibility to ensure timely submissions.
The last date for submitting all entries after the event is over is Aug 5th. No submissions will be accepted beyond that.
Similarly, in case of any Strava import issues, the participant is required to bring it to the attention of the support team within the required submission timeframe as above.

When will my Strava activity data be imported?
Your run will be available on our website within an hour of your run data submission or post availability in your Strava account if you have connected your HDOR account to Strava.
If your run data is not available in your account within one hour, please submit the activity link and run data manually via app or website, and contact our support team at email@example.com.
Can I walk instead of run?
We allow participants to mix running and walking. In fact, we recommend running challenge participants to take a couple of rest days as their recovery days by walking the minimum distance required if any as part of any specific event rules (like the requirement to run daily a minimum distance of 2 km for 100 Days of Running event). However, we have setup a minimum pace requirement for your walks. It should be at an average pace of 20 mins/km or faster to be considered for the event.
Can I run/walk multiple times a day?
You can run or walk multiple times a day and submit each activity detail on the website. All those activities will be displayed in your dashboard. However, only the top two highest distance activities of the day will be considered for the purpose of this event when submitted with required activity proof.
In case data is submitted without any activity proof, then only one such entry is accepted for the day
What is the minimum distance I can submit?
For any data submission, the minimum distance eligible to be submitted is 2 km. No distance less than 2 km will be accepted
What is the maximum distance I can submit?
With proper proof of activity in the form of a valid activity link from mobile app or GPS watch, there is no upper distance limit for submission.
However, if submission is without acceptable proof, then a maximum distance of 20 km can be submitted.
