Virtual Races – 2020 

What are Virtual Races, With events being cancelled left right and centre, it is only natural that people’s motivation to train and exercise will be seriously brought into question.
What we are offering is some fun events that people can participate in without the dangers associated with mass gatherings and ensure you keep within the social distancing guidelines by virtual races.

Just remember running, swimming and cycling is far more to many than just a bit of exercise, they also play an important part in our mental wellbeing for so many different reasons. If Virtual Races help to keep some of us a little more focussed – Job Done!!

And we are extremely lucky to have rugby legend Shane Williams himself sign up to take part. Like many of you Shane had a big year of competing planned out and his own Bike Ride Tour de Shane has been hit as well. So although its only a bit of fun, its always nice to pit yourself against someone like Shane!

Who needs people!!

How it works

We will set dates and distances for people to complete and we will upload these to our website with a leader board. It does not matter where you are located in the world you can take part. Now we appreciate some routes are easier than others so to try and level (no pun) the playing field we will put in a minimum elevation that has to be achieved. Every two weeks we will add different challenges.

The Logistics 

Cost to Enter – You can do the virtual event for free and we will post your results to the leader board – if you want a specially designed Virtual Run T-shirt, it will be £15 and we will post it to you.
