Your Total Score!
Brag about your amazing hill-slaying on social media using the hashtags: #virtualvert and #rockcandyrunning
These examples show that the amount of reps can be a huge factor towards your overall score. But of course, the more vert you are able to gain overall in a run can jack the score up as well. This is why it’s important to get creative with what you have available! Ultimately, the overall vert score is a challenge against yourself and the other runners in the event Strava group, but all participants are eligible to win prizes. Note that you must upload a gps activity (not manual) to the Strava group to participate.
All runners must follow social distancing guidelines. Running with partners other than those you live with is strongly discouraged. Any and all local mandates related to COVID-19 must be followed by all participants. Recommendations by government officials concerning outdoor activities should be researched by and followed by all participants. Do not run on any trails, roads, or other areas that are closed during the event dates, this may result in disqualification. (This is where the creativity comes in!) Regulations concerning COVID-19 vary state to state and are the sole responsibility of each participant to research and follow. Please also utilize safety measures that best apply to the environment you choose to run in (wilderness, traffic, etc). Rock Candy Running is not responsible for choosing or approving an event “course” for participants, and will not provide any supervision during the event. Any risks associated with the chosen course, intense exercise, and/or COVID-19 are assumed entirely by each participant.
Use common sense, be safe, and have fun!
