How to log your vertical run
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 time taken to achieve an elevation gain of 628m or 2,909 vertical steps.
Entering a contest which has an associated time challenge allows you to attempt each time challenge as many times as you wish without the need to register several times!

Driven by the impact of the COVID-19 world-wide crisis, Gulf for Good’s international charity projects need your support more than ever before.
Our usual source of fundraising from our local training activities and international challenges are under threat, our limited resources are extremely stretched and our operational sponsorship is also at risk.
Your donation will go a long way to help our own sustainability and our 2020 charities that support over 2,000 children in Nepal, Uganda, Peru, Tanzania, and Lebanon by providing the children with the day-to-day essentials: food, clean water, shelter, and clothing.
