Join Global Virtual Run 2020
In a time where every physical event is canceled, it is nice to still have the feeling that you can be part of something. Nothing is more annoying than the feeling that all your hard work and effort has been in vain, because the event you were training for is cancelled. Participate in our virtual run and put your training to good use!
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) anywhere. There is no start or finish point, so you can run it from any location you want. Complete a virtual 5 km, 10 km or challenge yourself (and your friends) and complete our virtual half or whole marathon. Join fellow runners around the globe in this challenge.
You don't have to be a pro to participate in this run. There are four different distances for which you can register, so that there is a challenge for everyone. If running is not your thing, it is also possible to walk the distance you registered for. In addition, you can run the distance between October 29th and November 1th, so that you can choose a suitable time yourself.
