New and Improved KM Tracker Category

What is the KM Tracker Category?

Game On Corporate Cup’s KM Tracker category is a new, improved and more flexible version of the participant category where runners and walkers aim to build up as many km’s as possible in the fortnight between rounds! You may choose to run once a fortnight as usual or you can choose to incorporate additional runs in the fortnight, it’s up to you.

Where does the KM Tracker take place?

Anywhere you like! You are not required to be onsite for this category and can build up kms wherever it is most convenient for you.

When does the KM Tracker take place?

Anytime between the fortnightly rounds starting 4th August 2021, day or night!

Targets and incentives

Each round, there are 3 target categories: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Teams are to work together to try and reach the minimum kms to reach their desired target category. Individuals may also try and reach the minimum kms of each category. Each round the minimum kms change for each category. Bronze is the lowest category, Silver is the second highest and Gold as the highest km category. Targets will be posted to the KM Tracker page of the website and will be viewable each round on your profile. The team with the most kms accumulated at the end of Game On Corporate Cup will win the KM Tracker perpetual trophy.

I’ve registered for KM Tracker – what now?

Great to hear! All you need is a device to track the distance you run/walk (you don’t have to pay for anything extra, you can use a Fitbit, smartwatch, pedometer or download a free app to your phone like Strava or Map my run). When you start your run/walk, start your tracker and then stop when you’re finished.

Is there an exact date we need to run from?

If you are registered for the Most Improved or Fastest Category, you run on the dates specified in the Locations tab. If you are registered for the KM Tracker Category you may begin accumulating your kilometres on Wednesday 4 August.

Do I need to use a timing card?

All participants registered for the Most Improved or Fastest categories in the City or Mawson Lakes must have a timing card. All other locations and categories must use a GPS running app. Note: If you are in the Most Improved or Fastest Category you MUST stick to the location and course you register with.

What are the track opening times?

Staff will be on site at 2 locations for 7 fortnights: City: 6am – 6pm Mawson Lakes: 6.30am – 1.30pm This year, if you are competing in Most Improved in Glenelg or Semaphore, you must complete your run on the day indicated in the locations tab.

What is the latest time I can start my run or walk?

City Event: 6.00pm is the last time you can start your run or walk from Karrawirra, Adelaide (next to Lounders Boatshed Cafe). Mawson Lakes 1.30pm is the last time you can start your run or walk. If you are competing in Most Improved in Glenelg or Semaphore, you may start your run at any time as long as it is on the day indicated in the locations tab.

What if I forget my timing tag?

Staff will provide you with a temporary timing card or will assist you with recording your time manually.

Do team members have to race at the same time?

No. In fact we encourage team members to avoid running in groups to allow for social distancing. We recommend running in pairs while keeping a 1.5m distance.

Can team members race at different regions during the event?

Team members may only race at different regions if the team has registered for the KM Tracker Category.

Can I change my distance?

Yes, you can! However, there are some circumstances to consider before doing so:

  1. If you are registered for a shorter distance (i.e. 2.75km) but have been running a longer distance (i.e. 4.5km) and want to keep running the 4.5km, then the process is simple and can be changed easily.
  1. If you are registered for a longer distance (i.e. 7.2km) and have been running at this distance but would like to change to a shorter distance (i.e. 4.5km), your previous times will be deleted.

You will essentially be noted as a DNF (Did Not Finish, 00.00). This means you will receive attendance points, but no base time. Your base time will then be established the next time you run. The reasoning behind this is that, if you were running the 4.5km instead of the 7.2km, your base time from completing 4.5km would be too quick to complete 7.2km, and not allow you to receive maximum points on your future runs. If you have competed at the wrong distance or wish to change, we request that participants contact us as soon as possible so it can be corrected. Please email: rosa-lee@enventive.com.au.

Can I email/phone my run time in?

No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times. If you forget or do not have your card on the day, notify a staff member so that we can manually record your time. No, we cannot take emailed or phoned in times. If you forget or do not have your card on the day, notify a staff member so that we can manually record your time. If you are participating virtually (KM tracker, Glenelg or Semaphore), you need to record your times/distances via the results portal.

I cannot do the run this week, can I get a fill in?

Due to safety reasons you cannot participate in the event for somebody else nor can somebody else participate in the event for you. If you have more than 5 people in your team, missing a run will not affect your score if everyone else participates that round.

What parking options are available?

Please see the Locations tab for parking options.

Where can I store my bag/keys?

In the City and Mawson Lakes, a baggage marquee will be set up with an IN and OUT entrance. Participants can only enter the marquee one at a time and leave their belongs at their own risk. We highly recommended not bringing any belongings with you to the sites. As for your keys, we suggest bringing your car key only and storing it in your ID card lanyard, wearing a bum bag or wearing some shorts that have a zip pocket.

How are points tallied for most improved category?

Teams consist of 5 to 7 participants and each participant will receive a score between 5 and 40 each run. Team points for the round are calculated by adding the 5 best individual scores together. The 5 highest total points from these rounds are then used to determine your final score.

How are points tallied for fastest category?

There are no points tallied for the fastest category. Instead, each round, an average time is calculated from the fastest 5 participants in your team. Your final time for the program will be calculated by the total average times of your best 6 rounds.

How are points tallied for KM tracker category?

There are no points tallied for the KM Tracker. Instead, your aim is to accumulate as many kilometres as possible throughout the program. For each round, the top 5 team members’ kms are totalled for your weekly score. Your final distance/overall score is the total kms from all 7 rounds.

What if I miss a run?

If you miss a week it will only affect your personal result. Please do not run with someone else’s card as this will not reflect their true time and does not help them in future runs.

Will that affect the team score?

It will only affect your personal result assuming 5 other members in your team have competed, and then the overall team tally will not be affected.

If I am looking to qualify for the Fastest Runner categories, how many runs must I complete?

To be eligible in the Fastest Runner categories, you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 6 runs. This differs to individual points, whereby you must complete 6 out of the 7 runs to qualify. An average is then calculated from your best 5 runs, not including the first week.

How do I find my results?

To view 2021 results please log in to your Game On Corporate Cup Profile. On your Home Page you will be able to view your own results, your team member’s results as well as your position on the leaderboard.

What if I lose/damage my timing tag?
