When do registrations end?

Event registrations end on Jan 25th, 2020 at 5:00 pm IST.

Can I register for multiple distances?

Yes, participants may register for a single distance event or multiple events. For example a participant may register for 5 km and half marathon races.

How do I login to my account?

Participants need to login to the HDOR website using their communicated login credentials.

When can I run for the event?

The event starts on Jan 19th and ends on Jan 26th, 2020. Participants must complete the runs for their registered distance between these dates.

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, time as well as an activity link if the run distance exceeds 3 km.

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 should ensure that all your activity links are public so that other event participants and event admin can view your activity data.

Manual entries: Actitivies without any data proof, not recorded using any mobile app or GPS device may only be submitted for our Challenge Series events, subject to a maximum distance of 3 km for a day. This can be done using our website or app after logging in. No manual entry will be considered for any Virtual Run Series events.

Running apps to use: For any data submission for distance exceeding 3 km, 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.

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.

Multiple runs in day: Are allowed, and each have to be submitted separately. They will be counted towards your mileage for any of the annual distance based challenges.

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 runs for one event: For a run to be considered towards 5 km, 10 km, half marathon and marathon challenge events, it should be done in one go and recorded as a single run 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 challenge event. For other distance challenges there are no such restrictions.

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.

What distance do I need to run?

Registered for 3k : 3+ km to less than 5 km

Registered for 5k : 5+ km to less than 10 km

Registered for 10k : 10+ km to less than 21 km

Registered for Half Marathon : 21+ km to less than 26 km

Registered for Republic Day 26k: 26+ km to less than 42 km

Registered for Marathon : 42+ km

Can I run the race distance multiple times?

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

Do I need to run 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.

When will my Strava run 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.

How do I qualify as a finisher?

To qualify as a finisher, you are required to submit your run 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, Endomondo, 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) or cheated in any way.

Should I submit elapsed or moving time?

When submitting run data for a virtual run series 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.
