OFFICIAL SMOHIT STEPS CHALLENGE RULES

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO WIN!

PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED TO THE TOP 10 PARTICIPANTS IN THREE CATEGORIES:

      • Beginner – 30,000 to 300,000 Steps
      • Intermediate – 300,001 to 500,000 Steps
      • Advanced – 500,001 Steps and Above
If you won a prize in previous steps challenges, you will need to advance to a higher level this time to be eligible to win prizes again. For example-if you won at the highest level in the Beginner category last time you will need to advance in the Intermediate category to win again (note - you are not required to walk additional steps to compete, only if you wish to earn prizes in the higher category). If you placed 2nd or 3rd in your category, to win a prize in the same category, you will need to walk more steps to advance at least one place (from 2nd to 1st or 3rd to 2nd or 1st). If you have already competed in the Advance Category before, you will not have to beat your personal best to participate in the challenge, only if you wish to earn prizes in the Advanced Category.

YOU MUST BE REGISTERED IN THE CHALLENGE BY MIDNIGHT (adjusted for your time zone) MARCH 14th TO QUALIFY FOR ANY AND ALL PRIZES

STEPS MUST BE REGISTERED USING A TRACKING DEVICE – NO MANUAL ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED

You must sync your steps with your tracking device in Challenge Runner. If you are having synching troubles be sure to visit the Challenge Runner FAQ’S page to see if your device can be fixed manually https://challengerunner.com/support/search

 

*Make sure to keep walking even if you are having syncing problems. Your fitness device will still record your steps even if challenge runner is not reflecting accurate totals.

If your device is still having trouble counting your steps, please contact Challenge Runner by submitting a request through, https://challengerunner.com/Contact

Be sure to reach out to your SMOHIT Team as well so they can be made aware of your concerns:

EVERYONE WHO REGISTERS AND REACHES 30,000 STEPS BY THE END OF WEEK 1 WILL QUALIFY FOR A FREE OFFICIAL SMOHIT STEPS CHALLENGE T-SHIRT!

PLEASE NOTE: In the interest of fair competition, the officials for this challenge reserve the right to disqualify anyone suspected of artificially ‘padding’ step counts. Step totals will be monitored daily and excessive step totals will be reviewed and discussed with the participant. Some trackers pick up excessive arm movements. If you determine this to be the case, you may want to place your tracker in a pocket while you are doing repetitive arm activity. Many tracking devices allow you to specify whether your tracker is placed on your dominant or non-dominant arm. Defining this helps prevent the tracker from counting arm movement as steps.

HAVE FUN…HAPPY STEPPING!
