Ever thought of running across Africa for charity? WE NEED YOU to help us and Veronique Bourbeau achieve just that by doing what you love most: running.
This event will consist of two challenges: complete 1265.85KM as a team or 100KM individually, all within 48 Hours! Get your friends, brothers, sisters and your family to join in as your participation can actively help supply Safe Drinking Water to aid those in remote African communities.
For more insight, a part of your participation fee will be donated to help Veronique on her world record adventure to run from Alexandria, Egypt, to Cape Town, South Africa. That’s a total of 13000km! During her run, Veronique will be making stops along the way to provide a clean and healthy environment to those in need and help reduce poverty in Africa.

Q5: How to check my progress for the event?
A5: You can check it on the event page for ranking or by the app by following these simple steps:
Q6 : Why does my GPS signal is displayed as weak on the BiiB app?
A6 : GPS signal reception may be weak if you run between high rise buildings or in areas that have lots of tall buildings, it's best to run in an open clear area.
Q7 : Can I use my mileage for another event for this challenge?
A7 : Absolutely, as long as those mileage are synced to our app/system
Q8 : When is the last day to submit the result? Do I need to submit the result daily?
A8 : Result submission is required to be done within 24 hours of the activity and before 23:59 (GMT +8) at the end of the challenge
Q9 : Is it limited to indoor run/walk only?
A9 : No, with the latest announcement, runners are allowed to run outdoor with the social distancing SOP.
*Note: BiiB+ app can only track outdoor run due to GPS limitations.
Q10 : Is walking counted?
A10 : Of course! It does not matter whether you're fast or slow. However, step counter/pedometer tracking are not counted.
Q11 : How does the system track the team mileage and how often is the system updated?
A11 : The system is built to add up all the mileage logged by the team member right after the success sync (LIVE). The mileage display will update as soon as someone in the team has finished a run/walk with successful sync or submission. You can view it either in BiiB+ App, under event (second tab from the left) or via personal running dashboard at getBiiB.com/me.
Q12: What does it mean 'System will not taking overlapping activity into consideration'?
A12: The system will not accept two activites for the same time, there can only be one activity for one specific period of time
Eg: If you submit an activity for 10am till 11am, then your second submission states that the activity is from 10.30am to 11.30am, that is considered overlapping because you are supposed to be running from 10 - 11am and that is already one activity.
