    5K RACE


  • Please choose the Route carefully by following the guidelines below.
    • Choose an open route with clear visibility to the sky, so that your watch can receive GPS signals well, and the recording is proper. Avoid running near tall buildings which can block the GPS signals. Runs with erratic GRS will not be considered for final standings.
    • We recommend an out and back loop, where you start and finish at the same point (distance between start and finish points are less than 300m).
    • Please avoid running in loops smaller than 2km, as the GPS errors can be very high and can disqualify your time.
    • If your Start and Finish points are not the same (distance between start and finish points are more than 300m apart), ensure that elevation drop is not more than 5m for the entire route.
    • This is a road race, running on an athletic track is not allowed.
  • You will have to run with GPS watches that support FIT files such as Garmin, and Polar, and sync the run activities to Strava. You will also have to submit the FIT file for our validation if you win the prize. GPX files are not acceptable as proof.
  • Be honest to yourself and run well. Any tampering with timing data, will have you disqualified from the final standings.
  • You cannot stop the watch during the race, even if you take breaks. Post the race, go to Strava - click on your 5k run activity- click on edit - click on the drop down below run and change it to “Race”
  • Please join the Fast&Up Strava Club, and the Strava December 5K Challenge. We will automatically pick-up your data from the Strava 5k Challenge. This is the only way we can get your timing data. Manual submissions are not allowed.
