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 – this is the main purpose of our event.
Which activities are accounted for?
Walking (power-walking or hiking), running (outside or on the treadmill), cycling (outside or indoor), swimming (outside or indoor) and nautical sports (kayak, canoe, rowing, stand-up paddling, etc); 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?
Yes, for the “Everest” challenge.
If I register after January 1st, 2022, would the mileage I did since the New Year be counted?
Yes. You can add it manually into your account.
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, 2022. 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 and Garmin Connect users can authorize us to automatically import their activities into our platform.
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. Team members enroll individually (on the “national” routes) and could join a team from their account. Mileage added by each member (regardless of their sport/s) will automatically be added up to the Team total. Teams use the global route and a separate Progress table.
Are there any special prizes for the first finishers?
No. Please see The Spirit of this Event for details.
When I’ll receive my Finisher Belt Buckle or Medal?
In the first half of January 2023.
I don’t reside in Romania, may I take part?
Yes, you are welcome to walk, run, cycle, swim, row or paddle your way trough our beautiful country and to get to know it.
I finished only one distance option from my Duathlon package / only two from my Triathlon package. Am I a Finisher of those options? No. Participants enrolled in Duathlon or Triathlon packages become Finishers upon successfully completing all distance options they signed up for.
