Do I have to be active daily?
No, you could organize yourself as you consider best in order to reach the Finish in due time; it is ideal to equally distribute your activities during the whole year and to stick to the schedule.
Which activities are accounted for?
Walking (power-walking or hiking), running (outside or on the treadmill), biking (outside or indoor) and swimming (outside or indoor); where you like it, when you like it (of course, respecting all legal requirements). Both regular training and competitions. Distances covered during regular, daily activities (such as walking inside the house or running errands or walking to work, etc) are not counted. Participants should only report activities meant specifically as training sessions or races.
I did a mountain run with a lot of elevation gain. Are the vertical meters going to be taken into account and converted into a equivalent distance on flat land?
No, we only account strictly the distance showed by your device. There is also the option to add your elevation gain, with an informative role only.
If I register after January 1st, 2021, would the kilometres I did since the New Year be counted?
No. Your mileage will be counted from the date of your confirmation as a participant.
May I transfer to another distance option?
All participants have the right to one moving request for a different distance option within the same sport, until June 30th, 2021. The move is free of charge, but once done it becomes definitive an it is the sole responsibility of the participant to fully complete it by the end of the year in order to be awarded the Finisher Status.
May I transfer to another sport?
Transfer requests between sports are not allowed; a participant could enroll later on for a different sport, if s/he wishes so, by registering and covering the registration fee for the respective option.
How do I submit my mileage?
For every activity you do, please use the Mileage Report Form (available by signing in into your account). It is advisable to do it frequently, and don’t let past activities pile up before registering them; it would be easier both for you and for us. Strava users can automatically export their activities into our platform; we work on Garmin Connect integration as well.
Which precision is used when submitting distances?
Two decimals. They’re automatically taken into account when summing up for your total.
Could me and my friends take part as a Team?
Yes (functionality under development). All team members will receive the access details and mileage added by each member will automatically be added up to the Team total. Teams will be presented with different challenges, routes and Progress tables as those of the individual participants.
Are there any special prizes for the first finishers?
No. Please see The Spirit of this Event for details.
When and how I’ll receive my Finisher Belt Buckle or Medal?
After December 31st, 2021, in the Finishers Ceremony or by mail.
I don’t reside in Romania, may I take part?
Yes, you are welcome to walk, run, bike or swim our beautiful country and to get to know its natural beauties and its people.
