How do I submit my daily run data?2019-01-19T23:34:44+00:00

You will first need to register for the event. Registration for past year’s events are not valid for any future event.

To submit your run data, you will need to login on the event website with the provided details and then submit the run data.

We also support automatically importing your run data from your Strava account, if you have connected your Strava account with your 100 Days of Running account. In this case, you are not required to submit daily run data since the system will import your run data daily within 24 hours of the run (not immediately). If there is any issue in your Strava data (missing data due to Strava issues, errors), the participant will be responsible in ensuring that they submit the data manually on the website within the permitted time limits.

Runners who have registered for the 2019 edition of 100 Days of Running will be provided their login details on Apr 1st over email. Once they receive that, they will be able to login to their accounts.

Participants will not be able to login to the account immediately after registering to the 2019 edition.

Where do I need to run to take part in the event?2019-01-28T10:35:52+00:00

Anywhere, as long as you run (or run/walk). You can run indoors on a treadmill. On a road near your home, a park, around your office, it doesn’t matter.

Do however note that if your run distance is more than 10 km, it is mandatory to submit a public GPS activity link from a running app for the same as proof. If you do not have the same, you can submit a maximum distance of 10 km for a day, no proof needed.

I use a GPS running app or GPS watch. Will my data be read automatically?2019-01-25T13:53:49+00:00

We currently only support automatic import of your running data from your Strava account, if you have connected it to your 100 Days of Running account. For any other running apps (like Endomondo, Runkeeper, Garmin Connect, TomTom Sports, etc), you will be required to manually submit the run data via a public GPS activity link of your run (unless you have setup automatic sync of your app run data to your Strava account), which must have the following details of your run:

  • Pace
  • Distance
  • Km/mile splits,
  • Publicly visible to everyone

If your submitted link does not meet these conditions, the data will not be considered valid and will be rejected/removed.

I participated in 2018 edition, is my last year’s registration valid?2019-01-21T21:02:03+00:00

No, you will have to register again for the 2019 edition of 100 Days of Running using the new registration process which will go live on Jan 26th, 2019.

However, if you specify the same email address for registering for the 2019 edition which you used for past edition, you will be able to login and use the previously setup account on the 100 Days of Running website after registering for 2019 edition.

Without registering for 2019 edition, you will not be able to participate in the same, even though your login/account may exist from a past edition of the event.

How much do I need to run daily as part of the event?2019-01-28T10:36:04+00:00

You are required to run at least 2 km (1.25 mile) everyday. You must pay close attention to your body and listen for any signs of problems, and stop if needed. There are no winners in this event for the maximum distance covered. Run a distance which you are comfortable with. Run/walk if you must, that’s okay with us.

How do I register for the event?2019-01-22T11:01:20+00:00

Only online registrations are possible. You can register on the register page starting Jan 26th.

Indian residents can pay through credit card/debit card/netbanking or using multiple wallets like PayU, PayTM, or Ola Money.

Applicants residing outside India can pay using credit card.

Registrations can be done individually, or bulk registrations as a group with some additional benefits for group members (minimum 20 participants required to be eligible for group registration).

What is a public GPS activity link?2019-01-25T13:57:48+00:00

In the 100 Days of Running data submission system, we require participants to submit a public GPS activity link in case the data they are submitting is for a distance which exceeds a certain number of kms, as per rules. So what is it? Read this article to find out.

Can I register all my group members together?2019-01-26T00:30:49+00:00

Yes, bulk registrations for group members is possible, if the group size is 20 participants or more. Registering as a group has additional benefits like getting your group name printed on the event t-shirt (along with the participant name), as well as discounted group registration cost.

To register as a group, the group leader or representative will be required to do the full payment online for the entire group. Once that is done, within 48 hours, the group leader will receive an email from our ticketing partner with a list of coupon codes for each member. The group leader will then be required to share the coupon code with his or her group members. Each group member can then submit their personal details using the individual registration form without being required to do any payment by using that zero cost coupon code.

Group registrations are non-refundable.

Do I get confirmation of the registration post payment of the fees?2019-01-21T20:48:22+00:00

You will receive an email from our ticketing partner, Townscript, with your booking id, and details of your payment.

I am training for a marathon, should I participate in this event?2019-01-28T10:36:11+00:00

Yes, you most definitely can. If you are following a training plan, train as per that plan. On rest days, or on days where you are advised to cross-train, just run/walk the minimum 2 km distance at a very easy pace. This would be like your recovery day.

Doing 100 Days of Running while training for a marathon is the perfect option to build consistency, train regularly, and have a great run on the race day.

When can I enter the data for a particular date. Same day, next day, 10 days later?2019-01-25T13:54:05+00:00

Users must enter the run data for a specific day within 10 days of that date. For example: if the run was on May 10th, then the participant can submit data for that date latest by May 19th, and no later. This allowance is given to handle things like travel, etc, which might lead to delayed entry of data. No exceptions to this rule will be allowed.

If you are involved in work which involves remaining away for long periods where it is not possible to submit data within 10 days, no exception will be given for late data entry.

Can I register manually (offline)2019-01-19T13:03:14+00:00

There are no manual registrations for the event. Only online registrations are allowed.

What if I miss a day? Can I run twice the next day?2019-01-28T10:36:21+00:00

Missing a day would mean you miss that day, and it cannot be compensated by running twice the next day. Don’t stop your 100 days running streak if you do miss a few days here or there due to an unavoidable situation, like injury, or travel. Of course, with injuries, you have to take precaution before restarting, and advice of doctor as necessary.

How will I be able to see details of my recorded data?2019-01-25T13:54:41+00:00

The website will have your participant dashboard page where participants will be able to see all their submitted run details, as well as run data for other participants.

Why are you charging for registrations this year?2019-01-26T14:05:34+00:00

This is required to meet the increasing costs of organizing this event. Some costs may not be visible to a participant, like costs associated with having a team of developers for building the 100 Days of Running platform and improving it year after year. Designers to do the creative work. Support staff to attend to all support requirements from the participants. Costs associated with the infrastructure on which the platform runs and which needs to handle the ever increasing load. And this support is required for an extended period starting from Jan all the way to almost September, a period of 9 months.

All these requirements continue to grow as the number of participants increase, and we have basically reached a point where it would just not be feasible to execute this event without charging participants for the same.

Can I walk or cycle instead of running?2019-01-28T10:36:29+00:00

You can walk on your recovery days, our recommendation is once or twice a week. Participants can also walk instead of run if they are injured or unable to run due to health reasons. You can also mix run and walk on your daily runs.

Cycling, bike, or data representing any activity other than running or walking will not be considered for this event, and the event organizers reserve the right to take appropriate action if the participant submits such data.

I entered wrong data, how do I fix it?2019-01-25T13:54:54+00:00

You will be able to edit the manually filled-in data for the relevant date again, with the right information, within a 10 day window. For example, for a run data for May 5th, you can edit the data latest by May 14th, and no later.

Any auto-imported run-data from your Strava account cannot be edited by the runners. If the runner feels that any one of their auto-imported run-data isn’t correct, the runner will first be required to delete that run-data from the 100 Days of Running account after logging-in and then manually enter correct data within the prescribed time limit. Again, needless to say, you will be able to do this within the 10-days window. For example, if there was issue with your Strava imported data for May 5th, then you can delete and manually reenter the data latest by May 14th, and no later. Do note that all rules related to manual entry will apply, like no entry more than 10 km allowed.

What does the registration fee cover?2019-01-23T11:39:48+00:00

Following items are included with your registration fee:

  1. Entry to the 2019 edition of 100 Days of Running
  2. Participant T-shirt (dry-fit, light fabric, gender specific runners t-shirt. Also available in kids sizes)
  3. Finisher medal (different medals depending on your performance in the event based on number of days run)
  4. Online finisher certificate
  5. Online finisher scorecard (certificate with detailed stats about your performance)

First 1000 participants to register for the event (individual registrations only, group registrations not to be considered for this) will have their name printed on the back of the t-shirt.

Participants registering as a group using group registration form (which is different from the individual registration form) will also have their name and group name printed on the t-shirts, and also benefit from discounted registration costs.

How will you validate the data submitted by runners?2019-01-28T10:36:38+00:00

Distance up to 10 km for any given day will not be validated. For distance more than 10 km, it should have a valid public GPS activity link with all the required details. The data validation effort is community driven. Event participants can flag/report any bad data submitted by another participant via the Reports tab on their participant dashboard, and our team will analyze that and take appropriate action as needed.

Is there any restriction regarding submission of distance for daily run?2019-01-25T13:55:09+00:00

Yes. If you are submitting run data for a day, and the distance exceeds 10 km, then you will be required to specify a public GPS activity link for that run. If you do not use any GPS running app or GPS watch and don’t have a public GPS activity link, you can enter a maximum distance of 10 km.

To make things clear, for every run of more than 10 km, you need to submit an activity link which anybody can open and thus view your run-data, without the need to login to a running app account to view that data (like a Strava, RunKeeper, Endomondo, or MapMyRun account).

What is the minimum/maximum age eligibility for taking part in the event?2019-01-19T13:15:11+00:00

Participants must be at least 7 years of age as of event start date, i.e. Apr 27th, 2019. Parents undertaking is necessary for children under 14 years.

There is no upper age limit for taking part in the event.

If I register under early bird offer will I get the same items like other participants ?2019-01-19T14:19:12+00:00

All the registered participants will receive the same items, except for one difference:

  • First 1000 participants to register for the event (individual registrations only, group registrations not to be considered for this) will have their name printed on the back of the t-shirt
Can I run more than once a day?2019-01-28T10:36:49+00:00

Your day run may be done as a single run or broken into multiple runs, as you prefer, subject to total distance being covered for the day being at least 2 km. You need to make sure that your running data is available on Strava in such a case. Read our multiple runs article for more details on the process.

How to submit older runs beyond 10 day period2019-04-22T16:37:15+00:00

Runs older than 10 days cannot be submitted as per event rules.

Can I transfer/cancel my registration? Will there be any refund?2019-01-21T20:26:48+00:00

How can I submit data for multiple runs in a day?2019-01-25T13:56:44+00:00

If you are running multiple times a day without any GPS watch or running app and do not have a valid public GPS activity link, then you need to just add the distances and times of each run and submit that data manually as a single entry. Of course, as per rules, the maximum distance you can submit this way will be limited to 10 km.

If you use Strava for your runs (or your daily run data is available in Strava via an export from your regular running app or watch), and you have connected your 100 Days of Running account with your Strava account, then our daily Strava run data import process will import your data for multiple runs into your 100 Days of Running account within 24 hours of the run.

If your run data is on another app (not Strava), then you need to follow the below process to make sure it is imported correctly into your 100 Days of Running account. Basically, you will be required to create a Strava account and transfer your run data from your existing running app account to your Strava account (which should be connected to your 100 Days of Running account).

Read this article to understand how to submit data for multiple runs in a day in more detail and the process to do that.

Strava import did not happen for my run within 24 hours, what should I do?2019-01-25T13:56:58+00:00

Automatic Strava import system is a convenience which we bring to our participants so that they are not required to submit their daily run data. At times, due to connectivity issues, or because the participants runs were not made public in their Strava account, or for any other unforeseen issue, the system may not import the participant run data.

It will be participants responsibility to ensure that their data submission is up to date. If the daily Strava import process did not import their runs within 24 hours of the actual run time, participants must submit the run data manually within the 10 day window, inclusive of the date of the run.

I missed to add run data within 10 days, how can I add the run now?2019-01-25T13:57:14+00:00

As per the event rules, the run data for any given date must be submitted by the participant within a 10 day window, inclusive of the date of the run. For example, if the run date was May 21st, then the user must submit the data latest by May 30th.

Any requests for data submission outside the 10 day window will not be entertained.
