Spirit of Belron Round The World Challenge
Move on the App
While we cannot come together physically this year, Belron employees, friends, family and business partners will join forces and form a virtual global community to raise funds for Afrika Tikkun.
To take part, we are asking for a small donation, which will go directly to help the communities in South Africa.
Everyone aged 13 and over is welcome to register. For kids, parents will have an option to log kilometres for their youngsters!
Click on the "Sign Up Now" button above to participate by making a donation to Afrika Tikkun. You will receive a link by email to create your atlasGO account
Download the atlasGO app on your mobile device either from the App Store, Google Play or by visiting atlasgo.org/download. Login with the same credentials you used when you created your account and you are in the Challenge!
If you need help to get into your Challenge, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for participating in the Spirit of Belron Round the World Challenge on the atlasGo app. You will be able to track your kilometres, post sweaty selfies and share virtual high-fives with your community.
The Spirit of Belron Challenge event is also about raising vital funds for our global charity partner, Afrika Tikkun.
Belron employees have been swimming, cycling and running for Afrika Tikkun for 19 years and in that time have raised just over €11m.
Last year, we raised €1.5 million for Afrika Tikkun.

After submitting your activity on the GO screen, click on the share button. You will be able to either take a picture or choose one from your library. You can also add a comment if you like and share your picture on other social media channels outside of atlasGO. As soon as you have shared your photo it will appear on the feed.
We don't allow importing steps as the challenge promotes conscious workouts such as runs. Importing daily steps that also include all the steps you take at home is therefore not enabled.
For all activities, the application puts an upper cap to make sure our users don't put an unrealistic number by mistake, as an example 200 kilometers biked instead of 20 kilometers biked. The cap is set for a period of 24 hours and if you think you weren't able to add all your activities because of a cap, you can always reach out to email@example.com and ask them to add your additional activity.
Click on the bottom navigation bar on the ‘team’ button. It is the icon that looks like a heart. That’s your team chat. You can write in there to communicate with your teammates. If you would like to disable notifications for the team chat you can edit by clicking on the three little dots next to the team icon.
The easiest way to find and follow a friend is to use the search function on top of the feed. You can also click on their profile on the feed above each post or while visiting the leaderboard to follow your friend. On the leaderboards, check out the “Following” leaderboard to see how you are doing compared to your peers.
On the bottom of the navigation bar, click on your profile (button on the right). To make any edits to your profile name or add a photo click on the three little dots at the top right of your screen. You will also find your stats, activities and shares on the profile page.
Depending on many external factors, tracking can be inaccurate sometimes. Here are a couple of ways you can improve accuracy:
Make sure you are outside. We can not track your activity indoors. It is difficult to catch the right satellite signal indoors. For the optimal accuracy please add your activity manually if you are running on a treadmill or if you are walking in a building. You can do this by clicking on the “+” sign on the GO screen.
Make sure you activate localisation. We can not track your activity if tracking is not activated. Please allow tracking by going to your settings.
Fully charge your battery. When your phone is on low battery or if you use the battery saving option tracking services will be less accurate.
Please update the app. We continuously work on improving accuracy. You might be on an old app version. A full refresh is the best way to avoid issues. Delete atlasGO and download again.
For best results with GPS tracking iOS:
1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.
2. Toggle Location Services “On” for atlasGO in iPhone settings (Settings->Privacy->Location Services) and make sure location services are turned on specifically for atlasGO.
3. Turn Airplane mode ‘Off’ and WiFi ‘On’ in iPhone settings
4. Open the app, making sure you have a direct line to the sky. Then click ‘go’ and watch the kilometres increase as you’re enjoying your activity.
5. If it is cloudy, or there are trees or tall buildings around, you may experience GPS disruptions. Many GPS issues occur in certain locations that may not have a strong signal.
6. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you.
For best results with GPS tracking Android:
1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.
2. Reset network and location warnings in settings, and reboot device.
3. Make sure your phone’s battery saving mode is turned off as that can affect GPS.
4. If none of the above work, please delete & reinstall the app to see if this helps.
5. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact email@example.com so we can help you.
IF ALL OF THESE TIPS AND TRICKS DON’T HELP YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO LOG YOUR ACTIVITIES AND DISTANCE MANUALLY
Yes you can but please be aware that our GPS tracking requires you to have an internet connection at the end of a fitness session so consider potential roaming costs whilst tracking your activity.
Please update the app to the latest iOS or Android version to make sure it runs smoothly.
