About Virtual Running

Running is an incredibly effective way to lift your mood, get fitter and make you healthier. Running is one of the cheapest and most effective types of exercise. You can run almost anytime, anywhere, and running requires very little equipment.

Running includes power walking, jogging, running and racing – speed really doesn’t matter. Just find what works for you, by building up slowly. Running can be great fun and a great way to meet new friends. You can run with an old friend, make new friends with a beginners running group, go to your local parkrun, or even head to a running club.

Why Is Virtual Running For Me?

Virtual races are one of the hottest trends for runners who are looking to improve their fitness, stay motivated, and have fun at the same time.

Whether your goal is 5k, 10k, marathon or even 1000 miles over the year, the virtual run is a great option for those who want convenience. Virtual challenges offer no pressure, no travel or accommodation expenses, no crowds and flexibility.

Our virtual running events are a great way to keep up motivation, achieve your goals at your own pace and get a great reward for your efforts!

You don’t have to enter a big race to enjoy running – just put on a pair of trainers and get out there.
