How do I get the app?

Reaching Rio is a 'web' app (not a native app that you have to download from an app store). Visit http://reachingrio.org on your mobile or tablet and select "Save icon to your home screen". 

I don't have 5 on my team, can I still race?

Absolutely! We had some teams with only 3-4 members last year. You'll just have to do more activities to get to Rio. Remember if you are a sole trader or work for a small company you can add team members from other organisations to help you reach 5.

Can I log Gardening, Shopping and Housework as activities?

If you do heavy gardening that you consider a legitimate workout you can log it under Gardening (heavy).

Neither shopping or housework are appropriate activities to log.
