What’s stopping someone from cheating?
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.
How long does it takes to complete the full distance?
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.

Basically you share the distance with the other people in your team.

Your team will also be represented on the leaderboard.
You will also be able to see information about your own personal achievements and rankings separate from the team.
