Can I Run Indoors? How?

Yes, indoor or treadmill running is supported with HDOR! Now you can run indoors whenever the outdoor conditions are not suitable, like rain, local Covid-19 related restrictions, or perhaps you just like your treadmill in the gym or home.

Indoor or Treadmill Run

You can run indoors for any HDOR event using any of the below:

  1. Using supported watch – many GPS/smartwatch like Garmin, Suunto, etc support indoor distance tracking. Key requirement is that once activity is recorded on your watch, it must sync that data to one of the supported apps listed in previous section. So, run using watch – data syncs to supported app – data syncs next to HDOR.
  2. Using Android phone – use the Google Fit app on your android phone to record your indoor runs. Make sure you have setup Google Fit to HDOR sync.
  3. Using Apple iPhone – install the MapMyRun app on your iOS device and record your indoor runs using that. Make sure you have setup MapMyRun to HDOR sync.

Note: Indoor runs will only be synced to HDOR if splits are available for the run in the app on which your indoor run was recorded.

Are more apps supported?

Short answer - Yes. You can submit data using any activity tracking app as long as it meets the following requirements:

  1. It can show time
  2. It can show distance
  3. It can show pace & splits
  4. Activity data is public, i.e. visible to other users of the app.
  5. It has an activity link like https://www.strava.com/activities/2099459999
    which anyone can click and verify the activity stats.

Some other apps which participants have used to submit their activity data on HDOR are Sports Tracker, MapMyWalk, SmashRun, Fitso, etc. You can submit data using any activity tracking app as long as it meets the above requirements.

Apps not supported

Any app which cannot produce a valid public activity link as described in the previous section is not acceptable for data submission on HDOR. Some examples of such apps are Nike Run Club and Runtastic. You can share images of your activity using these apps (something not accepted in HDOR), but these apps do not have any public activity link.

How can my app activity be imported if I don't use Strava or Garmin

The good news is that Strava is now a very popular platform which allows your activity data to be synced from other apps and devices. Our recommendation is that even if you do not directly use Strava, just create a Strava account and enable data sync from the device or app you use to Strava (and connect your HDOR account to Strava). This will give you a seamless experience without the need to submit data everyday.

So, whether you use Garmin watch, Apple watch, some of the Huawei GPS watches, other Android Wear watches, etc, you may be able to get your data to Strava and hence to HDOR. Please read this article to find our if Strava supports data sync from your app or watch.
