Some of our events are challenge based, so will require the entry of your activities. This will include distance, time spent, activity type (e.g. walking, running, cycling).
You have the option of either connecting to Strava with our bespoke integration (explained below), or you can enter the activities manually (or both!).
Our platform's activity tracking technology is powered by Strava, which is a FREE digital service accessible through both mobile applications and the web, and for serious users, it offers various advanced features for a monthly fee. With Strava, you’ll use a combination of three devices: a smartphone, computer, or a fitness tracker, the most common form of which is a GPS watch. For smartphone use, you’ll need to have the free Strava app installed. Simply open your device’s app store (the App Store for iPhones and Google Play for Android devices), search for Strava, and download the app. On your computer, it’s even easier: Open your web browser and head to www.strava.com.
Once you’ve reached the www.strava.com home page, on your phone or computer. Next, you’ll need to create your Strava account, where your workout data and public-facing profile will live.
If you’d rather not create an entirely new password you’ll have to store or remember, you can use your Facebook or Google account info. If you’d rather keep things separate, perhaps for privacy or security reasons, you can start the account creation process fresh with your email. Follow the instructions — you’ll have to confirm your email or log in through the Facebook or Google platforms — and you’re in.
Remember, your profile and your account are two separate things, as with all similar online services. Your account encompasses everything on Strava related to you as an individual, while your profile is simply the information (name, photo, location, etc.) that other users will see on the platform.
Strava offers three ways to record an activity: entering the data manually, recording your run/ride/etc. with the Strava app on your phone as you run/ride/etc, or syncing the data recorded by a fitness tracker, likely a GPS watch.
Manual entry: On both platforms, choose the plus sign (upper right on desktop, for example) then select the manual entry option. From there, you can fill in as many details as you know, taken, for example, from a basic watch.
Strava app: Tap the Record tab. You can change any settings you need to, such as toggling auto-pause or audio cues on or off, then hit Start. The GPS on your smartphone will record the data from there, and once you’re done with your workout it will be uploaded to your activities when you hit save.
Fitness tracker: Unfortunately, this basic guide can’t delve into how to use your GPS watch. But assuming it’s one of the many mainstream brands Strava recognises, you can link your Strava account with the device so that activities recorded on it will automatically sync and upload to Strava. On desktop in Strava, you can choose the plus sign, then click Upload activity to upload an individual workout from your device. You’ll then see a list of available brands to connect with your Strava account. This connection will be saved in My Apps in your profile settings.
On the Strava app, head to Settings, then Applications, Services and Devices (or look for “Link Other Services”), then Connect a device to Strava. This will automatically upload your workouts after you save the activity to your watch, making it that much easier for you to keep track of all of your activities on Strava.
What data is stored?
From your Strava activities, we capture the activity statistics, which consists of the activity title, type, distance, time and date. No GPS tracking is logged. This information is then assigned to your Tofauti account and attributed to the event(s) your participating in.
Once logged in, navigate to My Activities, then Add Activity.
Enter an Activity Name, select an Activity Type from the dropdown menu, select the date and time of your activity from the calendar pop-out, enter the Distance and Time Elapsed, then Add Activity
You can also Edit an activity here too.
