The use of public (buses, trains, etc) or private (bikes, taxis, cars, etc) transport is not allowed during the challenge. The challenge may be marked as invalid if we detect that you used some form of transport.

You can:

  • run, but a moderator may need to verify your attempt before you can share it
  • be mindful of other pedestrians, cars and cyclists when completing the challenge

You can't:

  • use public transport (e.g. buses, trains, trams, ferries)
  • use private transport (e.g. cars, taxis, bicycles)

Please avoid trespassing on private property while completing the challenge. There is no need to enter any areas restricted to staff or paying customers as simply standing near those areas will be counted as a visit.
