Rules & FAQs
Have fun, keep healthy
The most important goal of the HoneyRun is to have fun, raise funds for the PTFA and support the schools healthy living ethos.
It’s a fundraiser, not the olympics
Please record miles in keeping with the have fun, keep healthy, spirit.
Run / ride / scoot / walk carefully. Obey the Highway Code, wear a helmet and lights where appropriate.
Kilometres, Miles or Steps?
We ask you to record in kilometres as most apps and watches provide this information. Adults - one easy approach is to record only once, daily, your total kilometres, i.e from your Apple Watch or Fitbit. For kids - you can use our pre-mapped routes below.
How do I track my kilometres / routes ?
In keeping with the spirit of the event, we don’t expect all kilometres to be logged with a GPS. We have shared a few popular local routes below to help make calculations easy. You are very welcome to use Garmin, Strava etc, simply estimate from Google Maps or use sites such as MapMyRide. If the event continues in future years, we may add a Strava Club, but for now, please feel free to calculate miles in the most convenient way for your family.
Do kilometres on exercise machines count?
Absolutely! It’s a friendly challenge and we’re all short of time, so feel free to use a treadmill, indoor cycle trainer or the kilometres from your daily walk/ride to work/school.
I have 3 children at the Honeywell. How should I record my kilometres?
As long as you only record each kilometres once, we really don’t mind. Parents can decide which child’s class they allocate their kilometres to, or they can spilt their kilometres between each child’s class.
The dog comes running with me every day. Can I add her kilometres?
That might be stretching the rules a little bit far!
I am having trouble logging a second child’s miles after I have submitted the first batch to the website.
Try a page refresh. That should fix it.
Walking with a buggy? Your kilometres may not be recorded accurately.
Holding on to a buggy with two hands while wearing i.e Apple watch - your distance will not be recorded accurately. See example below. Walk done together while first user held on the buggy while the second user didn't. (Click to image to view)
