Virtual running events and races – your complete guide


Virtual races and other running events are a great way to give your training a purpose, providing you with a clear goal to aim for – and if you pick the right one, the promise of a nice medal at the end as well. They work on the same principle as a real-life race (don’t worry, we’re not talking about running with a VR headset). You sign up for a particular challenge, but rather than running alongside other people, you complete the distance alone or with members of your household, then submit your results. You can run outdoors, or on a treadmill.

Although you don’t get the race day vibe you would with a real in-person event, you know that you’re completing the same challenge as hundreds of other people, and the event forces you to hold yourself accountable to your running targets.

If you’re looking for a new challenge, here’s everything you need to know about what to expect, which events you can sign up for, and even how to create your own for your friends to join in.
