Safety of all participants

ALERTATHON 2020 is a virtual run & ride event. Running and cycling could be very exciting; however, they also pose several medical risks. Our primary goal is to provide a most memorable, safe, and beautiful event participation experience for all the runners & riders across all age groups. Therefore, we request every participant to carefully follow and understand the event rules, exercise-related medical warnings, and risks to enjoy the experience comfortably and safely.

Proper walking, running, or riding etiquette is expected at all times, including maintaining awareness of your surroundings, following road traffic rules, wearing helmets, especially during the COVID-19 and lockdown times, and the instructions provided to you by the event director.

You are aware that any walking, running, or cycling can be physically demanding and dangerous to body and health. You take full responsibility for participating in the ALERTATHON event and do not hold the ALERT NGO or any of its members or entities responsible for any injury or accident.

If the participant is a minor, he/she must always be accompanied by a parent or a guardian.

T-Shirts & Medals delivery

Medals and T-Shirts delivery option is available only for those living in India. Due to the COVID-19 & lock-down limitations, shipping of your medal / T-Shirt may be delayed, and we request you to anticipate a delay up to one month after completion of the event window

Only one courier package will be sent to the Co-ordinator of Groups ordering for T-Shirts or Medal. 

HDOR virtual platform usage

By contributing to ALERT’s cause and joining the Save Lives Virtual Event, you also agree to the rules published by the HDOR virtual platform for reporting your virtual walk/run/ride details.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct

The ALERTATHON 2020 participants may not engage in any verbal, written, or actual misconduct that is abusive, harassing, insulting, or offensive, even if it does not fall within the prohibitions that are outlined in Rules of Event.

Regular data reporting

ALERTATHON 2020 participants will try to ensure that they are regular at submitting their daily run/walk/ride data so that the event leaderboards are up to date on a daily basis. They should always be mindful of the event submission window (between 9-Sep to 13-Sep) to ensure that they do not have missed data in the system, since submitting data post the above-mentioned window (inclusive of the actual walk/run/ride data) is not allowed. Participants will also not blame the event organizers in case they fail to submit their running data in a timely manner.

Honesty with data reporting

All the ALERTATHON 2020 participants will submit all walk/run/ride data accurately and honestly. They must not copy another participant’s data, and report is as theirs, even if they had run with the other runner but did not have any valid data proof. Using another person’s GPS data is not acceptable for the participants to show as their data.
