Q + A

We thought you might have some questions! Hopefully we have answered them below.
Still have more questions? Click here to contact us.

How do I log distances?

You can log distances using two methods

  1. Manually – Either on the web or via our iPhone and Andriod apps. Select your exercise type, add a distance and boom, you’re done.
  2. Automatically – Via the range of apps and devices that we connect with. Currently we support: Apple Watch, Apple Health, Fitbit, Strava, Map My Run, Map My Ride, Map My Walk, Runkeeper.
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 full distance of the Lands End to John O’Groats Virtual Challenge is 1083.8 miles.

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 above to work out what it’s going to take!

The course takes you through a number of iconic locations instead of just going along the highways.

Teams are a fun way to take part in the event.

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

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

Your team will also be represented on the leaderboard.
