You can log distances using two methods
- Manually – Either on the web or via our iPhone and Andriod apps. Select your exercise type, add a distance and boom, you’re done.
- Automatically – Via the range of apps and devices that we connect with. Currently these are – Fitbit, Strava, Map My Run, Map My Ride, Map My Walk, Runkeeper.
We do have a number of ways that we can detect cheaters, however we do realise that no matter what we do or how we structure it people are always going to be able to cheat if that’s what they want to do. E.g. Put their Fitbit on their dog!
There are no prizes for first place.
If someone wants to cheat then they are only really cheating themselves and wasting their money.
The amount of time it will take you or your team to complete this journey depends on your fitness level, exercise type and team size. Use our handy calculator on each challenge page to work out what it’s going to take!
