All runs must be verified by RunBet. Outdoor runs must be tracked and recorded using a supported run tracker app. Garmin Connect, Runkeeper, and Strava are currently supported. Indoor runs must be on a treadmill and be validated by RunBet's Referees as outlined below. Players may combine outdoor and indoor runs during the game (though not within a single run). Other verification methods are not allowed (other running apps, photos of your watch, app screenshots, etc.).
To run outside, players must first have (or create) an account with one of the supported run trackers and give RunBet permission to access run data from it. The distance and duration of runs must be tracked directly by a phone or wearable tracker and may not be altered or entered manually. Players must sync their runs within 24 hours to make sure they count towards the game.
For treadmill verification, players must submit two photos to RunBet's Referees via the RunBet app:
- A photo of the treadmill's readout with a clear display of distance and duration.
- A "sweaty selfie” that clearly shows the player’s face.
Photos must be submitted on the same day as the run. Submissions that do not comply with both requirements above will not be counted. Note that RunBet reviews photo timestamps and other metadata associated with photos.
Use of exercise machines other than a traditional treadmill (e.g. elliptical, stationary bike, stair climber, etc.) is prohibited unless a particular game explicitly states otherwise.
If a player’s phone or wearable activity tracker fails to track distance or duration for any reason, that run will not be counted. RunBet cannot reverse disqualifications arising from uncharged, broken, unsynced, or lost devices.
As part of our anti-cheating policing and general auditing measures, some players may be required to submit additional data from their phone or wearable device, including screenshots and background data. In certain circumstances, players may also be asked to capture or record additional information, such as videos of their indoor runs. In these cases, players will be contacted by RunBet's Referees with specific instructions. Compliance with such requests is mandatory. Non-compliance may result in ejection without a refund.
