You can find and share or copy activity links from your run or ride mobile app or from the website for the app or GPS watch. You should ensure that all your activity links are public so that other event participants and event admin can view your activity data.

Mobile apps to use: For any data submission participants must run using a supported GPS running app (refer to supported apps article for details), or a GPS watch. Not all apps provide a public activity link and hence may not be used if that is the case.

Automatic activity data import: We support automatic import of your mobile 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 activity 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. You can submit this using the manual entry data submission process.

Two activities for one event: For a run to be considered towards 5 km, 10 km, half marathon and marathon etc events, it should be done in one go and recorded as a single activity. Example recording 7 km and 3 km as two different runs in the day will not count towards a 10 km run as part of the 10 km race.
