Introducing the Virtual 5k, your chance to run or walk in support of Breast Cancer Month and the Pink Ribbon Foundation UK
Join this October for a free virtual event. Our main aim is to promote a healthy lifestyle and raise awareness for the cause, however, if you would like to donate then you can do so, directly through the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
Throughout the month of October we're encouraging you to run or walk 5km in a single activity. Complete 5km anytime from 4AM Thursday 1st until 11PM Saturday 31st October 2020. It doesn't matter when you sign up, as long as you complete 5km before the end of October.
Don't forget to wear pink and snap a picture! There's a handy photo tool that allows you to add a special Pink Ribbon Filter to your selfies found under 'My Efforts'.
If you'd like to share on socials, please tag @pinkribbonfoundation & @inphota or #PRF5KM on your posts so we can celebrate your achievements.
We also encourage you to make your donations to Pink Ribbon Foundation UK. You can grab your Pink Ribbon Foundation branded T-shirts or totes here

Submission of manual activities
The inphota platform allows submission of activities through many different means - Strava, Garmin, Fitbit - but we understand that sometimes it is preferable to submit the data in another way. To facilitate this we have produced a manual submission form which you can enter details of the activities for the contests that you have registered for.
To access the manual submission form you must be logged into the inphota account that registered for the contest, and have the details to hand. If you registered for the event using guest checkout then it is not possible to use the manual submission form.
Take advantage of quick registration
Quick registration will automatically add an item to your basket with the details that are listed against your inphota profile. This means that to make the most of quick registration you need to ensure that your profile is complete and up-to-date.
Don't worry, you can stil register without completing your profile, in the same way as you would family and friends.
We will be introducing inspire rewards points for a complete profile soon, watch this space!

What are time challenges?
Time challenges provide a way to register for and complete a real-world course at a convenient time.

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.

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