WHAT COUNTS AND HOW DO I SUBMIT MY RESULTS?
Once the event starts (0000 on 1st January) you can submit results via a page which we will link here in due course.
The easiest way to do it is to link your strava account and the results table will automatically update each time you log a run.
Alternatively you can enter your distance manually using the submit results form, which we will link here in due course.
Whichever method you choose, the system will then keep a log of your cumulative distance and update your position on the map.
You can run anywhere, anytime. Outside on road, trail, on the treadmill, round your garden, anywhere you like.
This is an honour based system. If you have a GPX file, link to strava or other training platform then you are welcome to enter that alongside your manual time entry, but this is totally optional.
CAN I SWITCH DISTANCE/ SLAM AFTER I'VE STARTED?
Yes you can, you can head back into your entry and change your distance at any time.
HOW DO I ENTER THE BOLT ONS/ 5 EVENTS WITHIN THE OVERALL EVENT?
Every runner is automatically entered to all 5 of the Bolt On events. As each one approaches, we will share links on how to submit results for that specific Bolt On. Once you enter a result for that Bolt On Event, you will be recognised on the results pages.
DO I HAVE TO DO ALL OR NONE OF THE BOLT ON'S?
You can do 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 or none of the Bolt On's. It is completely up to you and doesn't affect your overall slam distance.
ARE THERE ANY RULES?
The primary objective of this event is to bring our amazing community together once again. As a result we won't be verifying and checking all results that come in, rather trusting everyone to input their overall disstance for completion honestly. if there are any obvious errors, we will get in touch to advise and help you correct them.
Those who are under 18 years of age must have parental consent to enter.
HOW OFTEN DOES THE LEADERBOARD/ RESULTS TABLE UPDATE?
As a minimum, the results will refresh roughly every hour.
WHAT WILL THE RESULTS LOOK LIKE?
There is a live results table as well as an interactive map showing how far you have travelled in your respective race, virtually, against our real courses. This will go live closer to the event start.
WHERE CAN I RUN? IS A TREADMILL OK?
You can run anywhere, anytime. Outside on road, trail, on the treadmill, anywhere you like.
CAN I SUBMIT MORE THAN ONCE?
Yes it will simply overwrite the initial result. Example: If you made a mistake you can simply go back and enter a new result.
You must submit all results by 2359 on 10th April 2022.
DO I HAVE TO RUN OR CAN I WALK?
You can run or walk, doesn't matter which. But as above please make your session a run or walk to actively achieve your target, don't add any daily step counts to your total.
Under 18s may sign up to the Bike/ Scooter category and can compete on those.
I DON'T HAVE A WATCH HOW DO I RECORD MY DISTANCE?
You don't have to use a watch or GPS device if you don't want to. This is a community event and is an honour based system so simply put in what you achieved to your best judgement. You can use google maps or a similar open mapping system to work out roughly how far you travelled.
DO I HAVE TO WEAR MY BIB NUMBER FOR EACH RUN?
You don't have to wear your bib each time you run, but it would be great for the community sharing if you did and even more so if you run past other people out running the event. The hashtag to use on social media is #centurioncommunity.
WHEN WILL MY AWARDS BE SENT OUT?
We will post your award out to you as soon as the event finishes. If you finish earlier than the 10th April you will still need to wait for your medal or buckle, as many people will subsequently decide to change up a distance. Please give us at least 2 weeks from the end of the event, to get the awards out to you, but of course we will go as fast we can. International orders might take longer.
WHEN IS THE LAST DAY TO ENTER?
You can enter any time up until the end of the 10th April. Runs you have already completed can count towards your event even though you were not entered.
CAN I ENTER MORE THAN ONE EVENT?
Yes, if you want to run more than one distance you can enter multiple distances via race director/ the enter button.
CAN I RUN WITH MY DOG/ IS THERE A CANICROSS CATEGORY?
Yes - Simply select 'yes' during registration to 'running with a dog?' and you will appear in your age group but also the canicross category. The dogs do not get posted out champions awards, but you can reward them with your love!
Please do not enter your dog in the race directly/ of it's own accord as it will appear against humans in the results. Which means a young child may miss out on a prize as it has been beaten by a dog / adult :)
I AM BASED OUTSIDE OF THE UK, CAN I STILL TAKE PART?
Yes! The event is open to everybody no matter your location. We hope to see many international runners taking part.
WHEN WILL MY BIB NUMBER BE AVAILABLE TO ME?
Bibs are not posted out, they are available to you once you enter. Within a short time of receiving your entry, you will appear on the entrants page here. Click on your race number to see your bib number and you can print it from there.
