Welcome to the Vertical Marathon, a challenge to climb to the top of the world's tallest building from your own home. 

This aim of this virtual running challenge is to run to the tip of the world's tallest building, a total of 829m of vertical running on the stairs within your own home. 

We want you to stay safe, stay healthy and most importantly stay home so to complete this challenge you have the option to complete the distance in multiple runs as long as they are completed within the event dates of Friday 1st May - Thursday 7th May. We'll be adding up the total amount of elevation gain from each of your runs and adding the total to our live leaderboard. 


How to Participate

1. Register for the event

2. Connect either your Strava Account or your Fitbit account to inphota at https://www.inphota.com/profile/social/

3. Begin running

How to log vertical runs

Once you've registered and connected your chosen device then every time you complete a run it will be added to the leaderboard, you don't need to submit results every time you run. Simply record your run as you normally would and it'll be shared with us once you save it.

We recommend that if running indoors you check your device settings to run with GPS turned off or on an indoor running setting to record distance accurately. 

Please note that the length of your run is not added to the leaderboard, we're looking for the total elevation gain and will be adding up the elevation gain from each of your runs as you work towards the 829m target.

What are time challenges?

Time challenges provide a way to register for and complete a real-world course at a convenient time. By pairing your Strava account you can record your time over the selected course using a mobile phone or connected wearable device. Once the activity has been completed you will be added to the leaderboard and will have the opportunity to attempt the course as many times as you like during the event dates to improve your position.

What are challenges?

Similar to time challenges, inphota challenges allow for completion of an activity without the need for a real-world course, or a pre-arranged gathering. By pairing your Fitbit account you can record your activity when convenient, and it will be counted towards the challenge that you register for. You have the opportunity to attempt the challenge as many times as you like during the challenge period to improve your position.

Prizes and rewards will be fulfilled upon completion of the challenge.

When will I appear?

Our leaderboards for this challenge show the best efforts by people who have registered for this contest, and completed a qualifying activity using their wearable device. For time challenges this must be a device which uploads to Strava, otherwise a Fitbit device.

To be considered for the leaderboard you have to follow several steps:

  1. Sign up for the contest that you're interested in
  2. Connect your Fitbit or Strava account to your inphota account so that we know when you attempt the challenge
  3. Complete a qualifying activity (as many time as you like!)
  4. Upload your workout

That's it! Just use your Fitbit or Strava account as you normally would, and we will automatically download the activity and put you on the leaderboard. Please note that this process can take up to an hour after you complete the upload.

If you're having problems, or you've done an effort that isn't appearing after this time, then please get in touch with our in-site chat system.
