What is a virtual race?
A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked or crawl if you must, anywhere, any time… You can run or walk on the road, in the veld, on a treadmill, alone or with friends… you decide, where, when, at what pace… You are in control!
Why did we start this? As an athletics club member, it has happened to me before that I entered for a race (which is not so cheap in South Africa anymore) and due to unforeseen circumstances, ended up not participating and losing all that money. Or what is even worse, you participate and end up missing the cut off with 2 seconds, and afterwards have no medal to show for it. Now you can participate, and get the funky medal, in a time, place and pace that is convenient to you!
Virtual races are a great way to stay fit and active all year round. And although you are doing this on your own at your pace, you can still measure yourself against others by checking the leader board. Stay motivated by getting awesome medals for your participation. So come on, what are you waiting for, join the race!
