  5. Once your activity is recorded please sync it to Garmin Connect/Suunto App/Coros App.

  6. After you finish your activity please log into your Race Timing Solutions account to upload your daily result.

  7. Daily rankings will be posted on the Facebook Event Group.

  8. Winners will be announced on February 15th on the Facebook Event Group and on Asia Trail Girls social media accounts.
     

 

IMPORTANT RULES:

  1. ​Each team must consist of two members, with a minimum of one female member.

  2. You must reach your daily goal as a team but you can split the distance/elevation as you wish.

  3. There is no minimum daily elevation/distance per person, which means you can run as much or as little as you want to or not at all, as long as your teammate does the rest. (Please remember - this is a team challenge so we do not recommend someone to run it all by themselves!)

  4. Team members are not required to run together, and may choose to run at their own time and convenience.

  5. This is an outdoor challenge. You must run outside and use your GPS watch to record each activity. You can run on the road/trail/outdoor staircase. 

  6. You can only run one time a day. You can only submit one activity per day and can not complete your day’s target with many different running efforts.

  7. Your final time is the elapsed time of your activity - if you take a break this will count towards your final time so please don’t stop your watch throughout the activity.

  8. What goes up must come down - for fairness of the elevation challenge please don’t stop your run when you reach the desired elevation gain on top of a peak/staircase but run back down first and only then stop your watch [elevation gain = elevation loss]. (Tip - to see your elevation loss you can set your watch face so that it displays the elevation gain and loss. That way you will know how much you climbed and how much you descended.)

  9. You can complete your daily challenge anytime during the day/night as long as you start your run before midnight.

  10. If using Strava, each member must set the Strava profile to the public setting during the duration of the challenge.

  11. If your team fails to complete one or more of the daily challenges you will no longer be featured in the ranking but you can still continue in the challenge.
