When does 2019 edition of 100 Days of Running start?2019-01-19T14:15:07+00:00

The 2019 edition of 100 Days of Running will start on Saturday, Apr 27th, 2019 and finish on Sunday, Aug 4th, 2019.

Where do I need to run to take part in the event?2019-01-19T23:14:34+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 5 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 5 km for a day, no proof needed.

How much do I need to run daily as part of the event?2019-01-12T14:08:15+00:00

You are required to run at least 2 km 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.

I am training for a marathon, should I participate in this event?2019-01-19T23:12:26+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.

What if I miss a day? Can I run twice the next day?2019-01-12T14:08:15+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 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. Next, you will be provided your login details close to the event start date via an email. Past participants will be able to login using the previously registered details if they register for the latest edition using the same email address.

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.

Can I walk or cycle instead of running?2019-01-19T21:56:54+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 use a GPS running app or GPS watch. Will my data be read automatically?2019-01-19T23:32:56+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.

How will you validate the data submitted by runners?2019-01-19T22:53:39+00:00

Distance less than 5 km for any given day will not be validated. For distance more than 5 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.

When can I enter the data for a particular date. Same day? Next day, 10 days later?2019-01-19T23:29:40+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.

How will I be able to see details of my recorded data?2019-01-19T23:27:34+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.

I entered wrong data, how do I fix it?2019-01-19T23:24:19+00:00

You will be able to edit the data for the relevant date again from your participant dashboard, within that 10 day window.

Imported Strava GPS data cannot be edited. You will be required to delete it if there are any Strava issues with that imported data and manually enter correct data within the prescribed time limit.

Is there any restriction regarding submission of distance for daily run?2019-01-19T23:19:46+00:00

Yes. If you are submitting run data for a day, and the distance exceeds 5 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 5 km.

Can I run more than once a day?2019-01-19T22:47:21+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.
