How does this actually work?
Xperiathon is the world’s first marathon that takes place all over the place. A regular full or half marathon in all aspects except one, you run wherever you choose and you do it alone.
The race is open to everyone with Endomondo, MapMyFitness or RunKeeper installed on their smart-phone.
Four easy steps
1. Sign up by entering your e-mail in the box above. Then wait for further instructions. Meanwhile you can start thinking of what app you will be using during the race and what distance you want to run.
2. You will get an e-mail from us telling you to register. This is where you’ll tell us what app you’ll be using, and most importantly what distance you’ll be running.
3. Make sure you’re ready for the run, both physically and mentally. We don’t want you to get hurt.
4. Saturday the 26th of November 12.00 CET. Activate your app and run!
It’s this easy
After registering on Xperiathon.com you use the run tracking app of your choice (RunKeeper, Endomondo, MapMyFitness) on the day of the Xperiathon race. When you have covered the distance (half or full marathon) you end your run and tap save. This will send your run data to your run tracking service and we will get it from there. This will be the way you enter the contest.
The first man and woman to finish the Xperiathon Half Marathon will get a trip to Gothenburg with two nights stay and an entry to GoteborgsVarvet Half Marathon 2012.
For the first man and woman of the Xperiathon Full Marathon the prize will also be a trip, but to New York with two nights stay and an entry to the New York Marathon 2012.
Both GoteborgsVarvet Half Marathon and the New York Marathon have been sold out for a long time, so we’re really glad to have these prizes.
The ten runners up in each distance will win the phone Sony Ericsson Xperia™ active.
