1) Manually – Either on the web or via the iPhone and Android apps once you have
created your account. Instructions on how to do this will be sent after your registration via email. Select your exercise type, add a distance and boom, you’re done. You can add a screenshot of your tracker if you wish but it is not required.
2) Automatically – Via the range of apps and devices that we connect with. Currently the apps support: Apple Watch, Apple Health, Garmin, Fitbit, adidas Running, Map My Run, Map My Ride, Map My Walk, Runkeeper.
You can log most types of distance based exercise such as running, walking, cycling, swimming, rowing etc. For other non distance based exercise such as yoga or cross fit, we have a handy conversion chart that converts time doing these activities into distance equivalents that you can use.
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.
Yes – You can log any distance based exercise that you do. The common ones that we have icons for are:
- Running (indoor and outdoor)
- Cycling (indoor and outdoor)
All others can be logged to the “other” category.
You can also convert other exercises such as sports that you play or going to the gym etc into distances. We can provide information on some ways to do this.

Teams are a fun way to take part in Virtual Fitness Challenges.
**Note that each team member is required to purchase their own entry into the challenge**
Basically you share the distance with the other people in your team.
Your team will have your very own team icon on the map.
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.
You (as in you personally) will also be able to see information about your own achievements and rankings separate from the team.
The distance doesn’t have to be divided evenly among team members. You can team up with guru athletes and people just starting out!
So hustle up your friends or workmates and join the fun!
