Participants guarantee the correctness, completeness and topicality of the (personal) data provided by him or her to INTERSPORT in connection with the participation.
The title of the promotion is THE SOLAR RUN
The promotion will open 00:01 on 21st March 2019 (the “Opening Date”) to 11:59pm on 2nd May 2019 (“the Closing Date”) inclusive. All promotion entries received after the Closing Date are automatically disqualified.
To enter for the chance to win a prize, entrants must register on www.thesolarrun.com. Each kilometer (“KM”) contributed acts as 1 raffle entry for each of the 4 prize buckets. Consumers automatically earn 1KM by registering to the competition. Consumers can contribute more KMs by connecting their Strava running app. Once they have connected Strava, every KM they run that is tracked as a “run” on Strava will be added to their total and entered as a raffle ticket. Every KM they enter acts as an entry to the prize draw for each bucket. For example, if an entrant contributes 50KMs, then they would get 50 entries to the t-shirt prize bucket, 50 entries to the running outfit prize bucket, 50 entries to the running event prize bucket, and 50 entries to the Northern Lights run prize bucket.
There is no limit to the number of KM’s that entrants can contribute per day, or over the competition period. We reserve the right to remove any entrants suspected of contravening rules of entry. Periodic manual checks will take place throughout the live period of the competition where suspicious behaviour is evident (for example for daily contributions of over 100KMs). Checks will also take place prior to the final prize draw.
Participation in the event is free of charge and not dependent on the purchase of a product or receipt of a service of the Promoter. Purchasing a product or receiving a service of the Promoter will have no influence on the chances of winning.
The Promoter reserves the right to review the fulfilment of conditions for participation and require proof, particularly with respect to the age of a participant.
Late or illegible entries will not be accepted.

There is no cash alternative or refund for unused portions of the prize. Also includes ABTA or ATOL protection and a prize trip host. Comprehensive travel insurance is included in the prize for any UK winners; however it does not cover pre-existing medical conditions. For any non-UK winners, an equivalent cash allowance will be provided so adequate cover can be sought.

All prizes will be drawn after the Closing Date. Each prize bucket will be drawn separately. Winners will be drawn using a random value generator. Prize draws will be drawn in prize tier order, starting with the trip to Iceland first, then the adidas run entries, then the adidas running outfits, then the adidas Solar t-shirts. Prize winners will be filtered out of the subsequent buckets. For example, the 6 winners of the trip to Iceland (the first prize bucket that will be drawn) will be removed from the following adidas run entries draw, the adidas running outfits draw, and the adidas Solar t-shirts draw.
