It must be completed within the days that the race will take place, from May 16 to June 4. Each participant can divide his effort into as many segments as he wishes and keep proofs from the separate efforts, which in total should add to 44 km and 3,170 meters positive altitude difference, equivalent to 17,611 steps. All files (photos from smart watch, mobile application or from the screen of a treadmill, etc.) should be compressed into one file .zip and uploaded clicking the “Submit results button”, filling in also the participants details and bib number.
Regarding the “100k Challenge” this should be completed within the days that the race will take place, from May 16 to June 4. Each participant can divide his effort into as many segments as he wishes and keep proofs from the separate efforts, which in total should add to 100 km regardless of the positive altitude difference. All files (photos from smart watch, mobile application or from the screen of a treadmill, etc.) should be compressed into one file .zip and uploaded clicking the “Submit results button”, filling in also the participants details and bib number.
The results of each race will be updated every 3 days.
The race will end on Friday 04 June and the final results will be finalized on the next day.

The whole project depends on the honor code of each runner.
After all, the goal is the participation and not the victory!
