How Virtual Racing and Virtual Running Works

Virtual racing works just like other types of running events, cycling races and swimming galas.

The only difference is that they can be completed as a run, swim, cycle, cross-train or row challenge, at a location of your choice and completed at your own pace and date within the virtual challenge period.

It is still a race because you complete alongside your virtual racing team mates, an entire virtual community of support who will all encourage you as you complete your virtual run or virtual races that will earn you some awesome bling.

You can complete your virtual running race inside on a treadmill or anywhere outside, where ever you are in the world. 

Your virtual cycle challenges can also be completed outside at your leisure or on a static bike. 

Of course, the swimming virtual challenges must be completed in water, but these virtual racing challenges can be done in a swimming pool or open water, you just need to complete within the challenge timeframe.

So how do you get started?

Simply browse our list of challenges.

We hold regular monthly virtual races that must be completed within a specified month.  We also host ongoing virtual challenges which are virtual runs and races that can be completed within 6 months of race entry.  We even have challenges that see entrants running with their dog.

Then finally, you can challenge yourself to complete a specified distance across the year with our annual challenges, these races have awesome virtual medals as a reward for when you complete the challenge. 

If all that wasn’t great enough, when you sign up to one of our virtual races you are not only helping yourself stay active and hit fitness goals, but you are also helping some amazing charities and causes. We donate money from every virtual challenge to the races nominated challenge. 

But the real cherry on the cake is that when you submit your evidence of completion by deadline we send you the most amazing custom medals as reward for your hard work.
