You cannot choose which run will be taken into account in this race. Your first activity matching the goal of this race will complete the progression bar.
Please make sure that your warm-up has a shorter distance than all the sessions of our race. You can also permanently remove this session once synchronized on your Dashboard by clicking on it > Delete activity (you will lose all points and associated credits).
Here is everything to know about our SCSM challenge or VR rules:
Tip: If an activity is synchronized by mistake, and it prevents another valid activity from being taken into account, you can delete it by clicking on it. Attention, this action is irreversible.
You need to be registered before your first sessions.
Only activities begin after the start and before the end of a VR will count towards your final result. Our SCSM VR will usually go from 5:00 AM (GMT+8) on Friday to 11:59 PM (GMT+8) on Sunday. Make sure to check the start and end time on the SCSM VR page. Our Challenges will usually go from Monday starting 00:01 AM (GMT +8) – Friday ending 11:59 PM (GMT +8).
Our platform is compatible with most activity tracking devices and apps such Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Fitbit, Nike+, Runkeeper, MapMyRun, etc. Once logged in, you can connect your account from your Dashboard > Manage my apps.
Please connect only one app to prevent your activities from coming into conflict with each other. Your distances manually entered or GPX imported do not enable you to complete our challenges.
You must connect your app before your first session. When you connect a new app on our platform, only your next activities will be synchronized on our platform. We do not recover your previous runs.
Activities manually entered will not be taken into account by the platform.
The distance of your sessions practiced outside must be validated by a GPS app or watch. We are compatible with GPS watches or apps. Be sure your GPS is activated
Tip: If you have an Apple Watch, you can install and use Nike+, Runkeeper or MapMyRun that are compatible applications the SCSM Virtual Running Club platform.
If you use a connected treadmill such as Elite, Wahoo or Tacx (with a distance and speed sensor), you can sync it (with ANT+ or Bluetooth) to a compatible device or app then connect it to SCSM Virtual Running Club.
Warning: Your trainer has absolutely to be connected, with a distance and speed sensor to send us information we are able to take into account for challenges and Virtual Races. Otherwise, we would have activities without this needed information.
Most connected trainers are compatible with your watch (Garmin, Polar, Suunto).
Some others have some specificities:
Please fill in your weight and height correctly into your settings and use a heart rate monitor as we can carry out performance checks. SCSM will proceed controls on the performances of the runners.
If you already have a tracker connected but your activities are not automatically synchronized to SCSM Virtual Running Club, disconnect and reconnect your tracker from your account.
You can change your tracker app but please connect only one tracker at a time. Avoid that your activities arrive in duplicate on SCSM Virtual Running Club because they could then be in conflict and not taken into account.
When you connect a new app on SCSM Virtual Running Club, only your next activities will be synchronized on our platform. We do not recover your previous runs.
Please connect only one app to prevent your activities from coming into conflict with each other. Your distances manually entered or GPX imported do not enable you to complete our challenges.
You must connect your app before your first session. Please connect only one app to prevent your activities from coming into conflict with each other. If you have more than one app connected to your account, activities may be sent twice. One of them will be detected as not valid and will appear in grey.
When you connect a new app on SCSM Virtual Running Club, only your next activities will be synchronized on our platform. We do not recover your previous runs. Your distances manually entered or GPX imported do not enable you to complete our challenges and SCSM VR.
Only activities automatically synced with a duration AND a distance are valid. If your activity has no distance, it will not be taken into account for the race. So the distance of your sessions on a treadmill, stationary bike or home trainer counts in our challenges and SCSM VR only if a device records this data with a distance and speed sensor. (GPS doesn’t apply if you are practicing indoor). You, therefore, must connect them via one of our compatible apps such as Garmin, Suunto, Polar, etc.
An activity can sometimes take a few minutes or hours to be displayed on your Dashboard. Please contact our support only if you do not see this run or ride a couple of hours after.
For treadmill or home trainer activities, make sure you register correctly your height and weight and use a heart rate monitor. All activities may be randomly checked.
We do not have an app: SCSM Virtual Club is only available on sgmarathonvc.com, which is accessible via all web browsers.
