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 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.

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.

Treadmill runs: Treadmill runs recorded using GPS watches or apps in indoor mode and for which you have a public activity link which shows distance, time, pace, and splits will be acceptable for submission.

Minimum age limit for participating?

The minimum age for participation is 10 years, there is no upper limit.

Can I run the race distance multiple times?

Participants are free to walk/run multiple times in the 24 hr x 7 days window. The system will pick up the best effort run Or the participant is free to select the entry they wish to submit.

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/Garmin account if you have connected your HDOR account to Strava/Garmin.

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 which meets the above data submission criteria is enough.

Can my run 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 for a run), using a powered vehicle for rides or any external aid, or cheated in any way.

What are the prizes for podium finishers?

Age categories are divided as below, Top three finishers in each race category, gender-wise will receive a trophy

  • Below 18 years
  • 18-35 years
  • 35-60 years
  • 60 years and above
  • Top 3 finishers, gender wise of each category will also be awarded.

    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 or Garmin, we similarly consider elapsed time for participants finish time.

    What happens if I run some extra distance over my registered event distance?

    Suppose you registered for a 5 Km run and you actually ran 8 Km and submitted that activity link with 8 Km distance and corresponding time (either directly or via your activity import from Strava or Garmin), the system will convert that 8 Km to 5 Km by reducing recorded distance and time by the same measure. System will not automatically detect what time you crossed the 5 Km line for such imported entries.

    My name is not visible on the event leaderboard/reports, why?

    So you completed your run or ride and submitted the activity details on hdor.com website or app, but it is still not visible on the event reports page. This can happen when you did not complete your registration after making the payment. See this article to understand how to do that.

    When will I receive my race kit?
