How it Works

A virtual race is an event that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You get to run your own race, time it yourself and measure your performance against others using a Garmin, Strava or Endomondo tracking APP and uploading the results to your entry. You can also upload a manual time for those who do not have one of the supported tracking APP’s. You will then be able to view your results and ranking against others via the online results platform and receive your completion certificate. This is the perfect opportunity to keep motivated, to enjoy your freedom and test your fitness against others after the lockdown.

Strava & Endomondo

The ideal way to participate in a Virtual Race is to track your run using the Strava or Endomondo account, and link your activity directly to your entry. You can then select your chosen run to update your result in the Virtual Race.
