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.

You can set your own time-frame goal from 1 week to 18 months to complete each challenge. This goal can be easily changed at any time if you want to extend or shorten it.

When can I register for the challenge?

You can start this fitness challenge any time and from any location around the world. Registrations are open now so feel free to sign up and make a start.

We’ve made it as flexible as possible so you can backdate your start date to whatever date you want as long as it’s after the date we launched the challenge.

Can I enter multiple challenges at once?

Yes - You can enter as many challenges as you like and post your distances to each of the challenges.

You can either post all your distances to all of your challenges or you can decide what types of distances go to which challenges. e.g. you might want to send your walking distances to one challenge and your cycling or swimming distances to another challenge. It's completetely up to you.

What types of exercise count?

You can log most types of distance based exercise such as running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing etc. For other non distance based exercise such as yoga or cross fit, we have a handy conversion chart that converts time doing these activities into distance equivalents that you can use..

How do teams work?

Teams are a fun way to take part in The Conqueror Virtual Fitness Challenges.

**Note that each team member is required to purchase their own entry into the challenge. Each team member will receive their own medal at the end**

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

Your team will have their very own team icon on the map.

Each time a team member posts a distance, your team icon will advance along the map.

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.

The distance doesn’t have to be divided evenly among team members. You can team up with guru athletes and people just starting out!

So hustle up your friends or workmates and join the fun!

What is a Challenge Mode?

For certain THE LORD OF THE RINGS Challenges, when starting the journey, you will have the option to choose between Story Mode and Long mode.

Being in the Story Mode you have the opportunity to experience either Frodo's journey in THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenge Series or Aragorn's journey in The Return of the King Virtual Challenge Series, just focusing on the most eventful parts. The Long mode has the same amount of content as Story mode, but with longer distances to suit cyclists.

Do THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges cover the books or the movies?

Both THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenge Series were designed based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS film trilogy.

 

The 5 THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges focus on Frodo’s journey and the 3 The Return of the King Virtual Challenges focus on Aragorn's journey.

What does it mean that THE LORD OF THE RINGS challenges are locked?

The challenges inside Frodo or Aragorn’s journeys must each be completed in sequential order, hence you can start the next challenge in the series only after you complete at least 90% of the previous one.

 

Start either in the Shire by following Frodo’s journey with the 5 THE LORD OF THE RINGS Challenges, or in Rohan, following Aragorn with the 3 The Return of the King Challenges.

 

Only those with the determination and bravery to see the journey through to its end will be able to claim the final medal.

 

You can either acquire one challenge or both THE LORD OF THE RINGS and The Return of the King Series as bundles. You can also acquire the ULTIMATE THE LORD OF THE RINGS BUNDLE which includes both series, with eight challenges in total.

What types of exercise count? Can I log multiple exercise types?

Same with the usual challenges, you can log most types of distance based exercise, such as running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing etc. For other non distance based exercises such as yoga or cross fit, we have a handy conversion chart that converts time doing these activities into distance equivalents.

Do I have to complete THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges, in order to join The Return of the King Virtual Challenges?

No, this is not mandatory. You can start The Return of the King Virtual Challenges even if you have not yet completed any of THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges. You can also progress through each series at the same time.

 

Start either in the Shire by following Frodo’s journey with the 5 THE LORD OF THE RINGS Challenges, or in Rohan, following Aragorn with the 3 The Return of the King challenges.

 

To make it to the end of each series, you must complete their respective challenges in sequential order.

What is the difference between THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges Series and The Return of the King Virtual Challenges Series?

THE LORD OF THE RINGS Challenge Series follows Frodo from the peaceful Shire to barren Mordor through 5 virtual challenges.

 

The Return of the King Challenge Series follows Aragorn from Rohan to Gondor through 3 virtual challenges.

 

Although it doesn't matter what series you start with, you have to complete their challenges in sequential order.

How do I access the challenges once I’ve signed up? Can I use the Join codes purchased for THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges, to enter The Return of the King Virtual Challenges Series?

The best way to enjoy our Conqueror Challenges is through our mobile app "The Conqueror Challenges" which can be downloaded through the App Store or Google Play. You will be asked to create an account on the App. Once you have logged in, you'll click "ENTER JOIN CODE" and enter the join code that was emailed to you when you purchased.

 

THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges Series and The Return of the King Virtual Challenges Series follow two separate journeys. Thus, the join entry codes will be different. For example, if you purchase THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges Bundle of 5 challenges, the entry codes e-mailed to you will only be eligible to unlock this specific journey. The same is applicable for The Return of the King Virtual Challenges. If you purchase the ULTIMATE THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges Bundle of 8, you will receive 5 THE LORD OF THE RINGS Virtual Challenges entry codes and 3 The Return of the King Virtual Challenges entry codes.
