Rules & FAQs

  1. Event registrations will start on Fri Jul 4th and end on Wed Aug 14th, 2019 at 5:00 pm.
  2. Participants may register for a single distance event or multiple events. For example a participant may register for 5 km and half marathon races.
  3. The HDOR Freedom Run event starts on Sat Aug 10th, 2019 and ends on Thu Aug 15th, 2019. Participants may complete runs for their registered distance between the event duration.
  4. Participants must run using a supported GPS running app (refer to supported apps article for details), or a GPS watch.
  5. Participants must submit their run details either manually by providing their public GPS activity link details for the run, or connect their HDOR account with Strava if their run details are available on their Strava account. No data will be accepted without activity link.
  6. All submitted runs must be a single recorded GPS activity. Multiple activities are not allowed to be combined into one activity.
  7. All manually submitted runs must submit the ELAPSED TIME only, and not the moving time. Any run submission with recorded moving time will be rejected. See the image of one such example run entry from Strava which shows both moving time and elapsed time. Only elapsed time must be submitted.
  8. Participants are free to attempt the same distance multiple times between the event duration. The best recorded time will be considered.
  9. Participants must ensure that they run the minimum distance for the registered event distance. For example, for running 5km, participants must have at least 5 km recorded as part of their activity link. It is advisable to run a little extra (0.5 km for 5 km run to up to a km for 73 km Freedom Ultra) to ensure that the distance your app or device saves is the minimum required for event completion (apps occasionally reduce distance when saving, or when exporting data from one app to another, example from Garmin Connect app to Strava). Your final recorded distance as per GPS data must be between the limits mentioned in the below table to be accepted.
    EventMinimum DistanceMaximum DistanceExtrapolated Distance
    5K Run4.9 km5.5 km5 km
    10K Run9.9 km10.5 km10 km
    Half Marathon20.75 km22 km21.097 km
    Marathon41.5 km43 km42.195 km
    73K Freedom Ultra72 kmNo limit73 km
    For all participants, we will extrapolate the recorded distance to the actual race distance (reduce/increase the finish time proportionally to make it equivalent to the event distance).
  10. Your race results will be available on our website within 24 hours of your run data submission or post availability in your Strava account if you have connected your HDOR account to Strava.
  11. Any runs reported of distance less that the registered distance will not be considered. Event organizers will not be responsible for any GPS app or device issues for the participants device.
  12. All runs are to be done as per a person’s own capability without the use of any other vehicle or aid which may help with their finish times, just like in any physical event.
  13. Participants will be completely responsible for their well being and safety during the run. They must make sure they are running in a safe environment and take all precautions to avoid and risk to self on roads/parks or other premises where they plan to run, and will need to arrange their own hydration/nutrition on route.
  14. All winners will be required to provide their original GPS activity link if not run using a phone app. Example, a participant running using a Garmin watch would be required to submit Garmin GPS activity link with the organizing team for proof also. The team may reject the entries if they notice any inconsistencies between the submitted link and the original GPS link.
  15. Event organizers have the right to take any decisions for disqualifying a participant if the participant is considered to have taken any external help in running the distance (like using a cycle or any other vehicle) or cheated in any way.
