FAQ - Using The Tracker On The App


1) Please make sure you have allowed the app to know your location in your phone settings. If not allowed the timer will work but the app will not track your activity. We are unable to provide exact instructions for every model so please google your phone model and make and how to change location settings.

2) Please do a test run or walk before starting for real on your first time. Do a small 100 metre walk to make sure your phone is tracking your location. If it is then press stop and then back, and then NO to save, then you can start for real.

3) Some older model of phones such as Motorola may not be supported. Also some minor networks such as Giff Gaff are known for GPS issues and this may interfere with our app. 

4)If the app does not work for you we recommend download Strava and using their free option. Then upload screenshots to your challenges. 

See below for instructions on how to use the tracker.

And how many days you have left to complete this 

​To use the MedalMad tracker press the 'GO' button

Do not close the app after starting the tracker - this may cause the tracker not to record accurately, or at all

Please make sure your location settings are on while using the app when using the tracker 

Or the tracker will not record the distance you have done

And will not deduct this from your challenge 

You will see that the time starts recording once 'GO' is pressed 

So get going..! 

Once you have done the distance you want to complete - press the button that now shows STOP (square in the yellow circle) 

​Choose the activity you completed your distance in - the options you have are - 

Running, walking or cycling

Press the submit button at the bottom of the screen
