Once you are registered you would be mailed your e-BIB. We usually provide a registration link in the Event’s marketing collateral.
Which all apps & wearables are you compatible with?
Ideally all the apps which can share public URL of the activity are preferred for timing validations. However, We are comfortable with running apps like Strava & Map-my-Run. We also integrate with wearable watches like Garmin, Fitbit, Google Fit & Mi Fit, in order to give you a verified timing on your certificate.
Is any support provided by you during the event?
No. Since this is a virtual event. Participants have to manage their own support.
What do I do in case of a medical emergency?
Keep emergency numbers in your route handy.
Do I need to wear my BIB during running?
Wearing a BIB during the event is not mandatory. However, participants are requested to kindly save their BIB numbers. This will make it easier to address your support queries.
What if I take a pause? Do you consider run-time or the elapsed time?
We take run time for the certificate. Pauses while running or the run time are not considered.
What will happen if I run a distance short of my declared distance?
Your certificate will mention the distance travelled & the time taken. However, if there are any leader-boards or prizes you will be disqualified for that.
What will happen if I exceed the distance than my declared distance? Will it not affect my fitness score?
No, the algorithm takes care of excess distances.
How do I upload my activity?

If you are using any of the approved tracking apps like Strava or Map-my-Run, then provide the URL of your activity. If you are using any other running app, then you can enter your details manually & load the screenshot of your run displaying distance & timing details so that your run can be validated.
What if I don’t have any app or wearable?
If the event organizer allows then, login to your account on our website or follow the link sent to you by us on mail and enter your timing manually. However, in that case we will not give a “validated timing certificate”.

What is validated race timing?
A validated race time is one which is furnished by the app (like Strava). A manually uploaded timing with a backup from the screen shot is also considered as a validated timing.
