Event Rules

Important rule update for 2nd ed.: After 24 hours, and every 12 hours subsequently, the distance to be done in an hour will go up by 1 mile. So, after 24 hours, participants will be required to do 2 miles every hour. After 36 hours, 3 miles every hour. After 48 hours, 4 miles every hour, and so on.

Rule #1: All participants to start their runs within 10 minutes of a particular hour.

Rule #2: Participants must finish their hourly mile distance before the end of the current hour. This hourly mile distance is 1 mile for the first 24 hours, then goes up by a mile each every 12 hours.

Rule #3: Distance run for every mile for an hour should be a minimum of 1 mile or 1.6 km. More is no problem. Less (even by 0.1 km) means your challenge is over. So, you have to run at least 1 mile (1.6 km) for hours 1-24, 2 miles (3.2 km) for hours 25-36, 3 miles (4.8 km) for hours 37-48, and so on.

Rule #4: Your submitted run details must be available on a publicly visible running platform like Strava, Garmin Connect, Endomondo, Runkeeper, Map My Run, etc as a public GPS activity link. Run details for every hour must be submitted on hdor.com before starting next hour run.

Rule #5: The event will be tracked live on Zoom video conferencing app and broadcast live on Facebook/YouTube. Participants will be required to mark their presence online on Zoom for every hour before proceeding with the run (so, within first 10 mins of the hour).

Participants can be asked to turn on live zoom video during their runs when asked by event organizers anytime and will need to comply to continue with their participation.

You can download the Zoom app here.

Rule #6: Indoor runs are NOT allowed for the event.
