Sorry - it's time to say Goodbye

Hello

I’m sorry to say that after almost 8 years it’s time for runsaturday to close L

There are lots of reasons for closing: including hackers, spammers, costs, and time.

I’ve made loads of friends and had lots of fun on this site. I’m sorry it’s now ending L

So… I’m really sorry, but this site will close on 15th December 2016 – so please make sure you find a new hom and copy your data across there before then.

But I don’t want anyone to lose their previous training data…. So what can you do?

Well… there are a couple of ways you can download the raw data from runsaturday – in Garmin’s TCX format or in a custom JSON format:

-        You can download TCX files per year for your account by logging in and then using:

o   2005 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2005

o   2006 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2006

o   2007 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2007

o   2008 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2008

o   2009 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2009

o   2010 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2010

o   2011 - http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2011

o   2012 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2012

o   2013 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2013

o   2014 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2014

o   2015 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2015

o   2016 -http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2016    

-        If these files are too big (too slow to download, then you can work on smaller amounts – by adding the quarter to each line – e.g. &quarter=0 for Jan through Mar, &quarter=1 for Apr through Jun, &quarter=2 for Jul through Sept or &quarter=3 for Oct through Dec. So for the parts of 2015 you can use:

o   http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2015&quarter=0

o   http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2015&quarter=1

o   http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2015&quarter=2

o   http://www.runningfreeonline.com/DesktopModules/SlodgeTempFix/DownloadAll.ashx?year=2015&quarter=3

 

Once you have these files, you can then upload these TCX files to sites including Garmin Connect or to Strava.

Personally, I recommend going through Garmin first – you can then share to Strava afterwards using Strava’s tools, or using tools like Tapiriik (see links on https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216917877-Import-Historical-Data-From-Garmin-Connect)

 

To upload TCX files to Garmin Connect, login to your Garmin Account, then go to https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity-sync and choose Manual Sync – once there you can choose the files for upload.

 

To upload to Strava first note that Strava will only accept activities with GPS points – they don’t accept manually entered activites through TCX L

If this is OK for you, then you can upload files by:

 

If the TCX files don’t contain enough for you (e.g. they don’t contain the text descriptions), then you can get “Json” or XML files from the www addresses on http://www.runningfreeonline.com/About_Us/Developers

These “Json” files contain all the raw data in a custom RunSat format… they are not accepted by any other site yet… but they can be used if you have some software coding skills… If anyone wants this, I do have some example code for an app I tried to write to upload to strava – email me if you want it J

Sorry, but this site will close on 15th December 2016 – so please download any data you need before then.

If you need help with any of this please email me on sorryrunsatisclosing@gmail.com – I’m watching this address to try to help.

Thanks for all your friendship, support and banter during the last 7 years! Hopefully I’ll see you all somewhere for a run, swim or cycle soon J
