When can I run or ride for the event?

How do I record and submit my activity data?

Data submission: You can submit your activity data directly on our website or HDOR app after logging in to your account with your credentials. You will need to submit your activity distance, time as well as an 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 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 activity data from multiple apps. If you are using any of the apps supporting automatic import, please make sure to enable the automatic data import for the app of your choice using the Connected Apps section either on HDOR website or mobile app.

Multiple activities in day: Are allowed, and each have to be submitted separately.

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.

Can I run/ride the race distance multiple times?

Participants are free to attempt the registered run/ride distance multiple times during the event duration. The best recorded time will be considered for final results.

Do I need to run/ride the exact race distance?

Participants must ensure that they run the minimum distance for the registered event distance. For example, for running 5 km, participants must have at least 5 km recorded as part of their activity link.

It is advisable to run a little extra (0.5 km for 5 km run to up to a km for Marathon) to ensure that the distance your app or device saves is at least equal to event distance (apps occasionally reduce distance when saving, or when exporting data from one app to another, example from Garmin Connect app to Strava).

For all participants, we will extrapolate the recorded distance to the actual race distance (reduce/increase the finish time proportionally to make it equivalent to the event distance). So if you run more, we will adjust your finish time accordingly.

Any runs reported of distance less that the registered distance will not be considered. Event organizers will not be responsible for any GPS app or device issues for the participants device.

All runs are to be done as per a person’s own capability without the use of any other vehicle or aid which may help with their finish times, just like in any physical event.

All rides to be done in non-powered bi-cycles only without any external aid.

When will my Strava activity data be imported?

Your activity will be available on our website within an hour of your activity 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 data manually via app or website.

How do I qualify as a finisher?

To qualify as a finisher, you are required to submit your activity data on our website in the form of a public GPS activity link (as per your race distance) from apps like Strava, Garmin Connect, Runkeeper, etc, or public link to your finish timing at any organized marathon race.

It is not necessary for you to take part in an organized race to submit your run data. A self-supported run/ride which meets the above data submission criteria is enough.

Can my run/ride be disqualified?

Event organizers can reject any entry which has suspect GPS data (straight line outside normal run route, unrealistic high pace like sub 3 min/km pace at any time during run, etc)

Event organizers have the right to take any decisions for disqualifying a participant if the participant is considered to have taken any external help in running the distance (like using a cycle or any other vehicle), using a powered vehicle for rides or any external aid, or cheated in any way.

Should I submit elapsed or moving time?

When submitting activity data for the event manually on our website or via the mobile app, you must submit the elapsed time data for your run. Moving time will not be considered.

When we import data from other apps like Strava, we similarly consider elapsed time for a participants finish time.

Cancellation and refunds information?

No refunds or cancellations are allowed for this event.
