How to submit data for multiple runs in a day

Planning to run multiple times a day? Remember, our data submit system can accept only a single entry per day when manually submitting data on the website. So, how do you submit multiple runs then?

Process for Strava users

Make sure your run data is available on Strava and connect your Strava account to your 100 Days of Running account. Our Strava data import system will automatically take care of importing your multiple runs for the day.

Process for non-Strava users

Assuming you are either not using Strava, or you are using some app from which data is not automatically exported to Strava, you need to follow the below process:

Step 1: Download the multiple activity files from your app or app website

Most apps (or the website for the app, like Strava) support download of your run activity. Download the multiple activity files for your runs for a particular day. The downloaded files may be named something like .gpx, .tcx, or .fit file, these being the common formats).

Step 2: Upload your run data to your Strava account

Create a Strava account at strava.com if you already don’t have one. Upload your downloaded activities to your Strava account by clicking on the “+” button on your Strava dashboard page (this button is on the top right of the page), and then click on “Upload activity” and upload each file for your multiple runs for the same day you downloaded earlier.

Step 3: Wait for Strava import to happen

Make sure you have connected your Strava account to 100 Days of Running account. Your activity details for the multiple runs in the day should be automatically imported to your 100 days account within 24 hours.

    I am a single participant and I will run in gym only. Can I take picture of the treadmill ( representing total kms etc) after finishing my run and submit? Please advice.

      Photos are not accepted. However, no proof of your run is required till 20km distance daily. We trust our participants to submit the data correctly. Proof in the form of a public activity link is a must only for distance beyond 20km.

    If im running and cycling on the same day recording on strava, will the activities obstruct syncing directly?….or will it automatically pick the running activity only irrespective of any other sport activity?

      I have the same question as well. Can some one help with answer please?

      This will not be a problem. When we import activities from Strava, we explicitly import running activities only.

    My fitbit surge is connected with strava. What should I do to upload my stats?
    In fitbit surge there are two types of recordings, one is step counter converting to km, other is with the pressing of right side lower button. In case of Interval and speed work, you have to stop recording by pressing right lower button. After this if you go on walking that recording continues and two distance of running come up. Whether the distance recorded through step counter is admissible by taking screen shots. Only data which is recorded with right lower button is uploaded on strava and not that which gets recorded without right lower button.
    Other query is which is the app where the workout is to be uploaded.
    It is quite disgusting. Last years were very easy to upload the workouts.
    With regards

    “2783595162133376.tcx is a duplicate of 100daysrunningchallenge day 4_1”

      You will have to delete your other multiple runs to make that happen. I suggest you do a manual entry for now with any one of the links. We will take care of such scenarios automatically very soon by improving the import process.

    How to download the run data from strava app I am not able to download

    • Tanvir May 3, 2018 at 5:03 pm - Reply

      I think you can ignore this for now. We are looking for automatic import of multiple runs in a day via Strava. That fix should be there in a day or two.

      To download, click on the “wrench” icon near the edit icon, and click on “Export GPX”.

    Dear Team,

    I have registered in 100 days of running challenge. I am using iwatch (series 3) to record the data via Starva. But iwatch option is not available. Also when i click on “connect to Strava” its getting connected to someone else profile.

    Kindly look into the same and let me know what i need to do.

    Hi I ran 15K in the morning and then 10K in the evening on a treadmill, however when I combine the two files it only shows the data for the morning run (tried exporting both .fit and .tcx formats). Links to the runs below

    Hi, In a day if I do multiple activities then only one is automatically imported. however, in others multiple activities are automatically imported. I have done everything what is written but nothing sorted. please suggest.
    I use Garmin which automatically loads multiple activities to starva but from strava to 100 days of running only one is imported.

    • Tanvir July 5, 2018 at 7:08 pm - Reply

      Depends on time of day of the activity, since import is done only once a day. So, it may take two import cycles to import all the activities for a day.

    Are multiple activities in Strava automatically sync with 100daysofrunning site?

    • Tanvir July 5, 2018 at 7:07 pm - Reply

      Yes. May take two import cycles though since import runs only once a day.

    Is it allowed to only walk everyday? Or mix of run/walk is compulsory?
