What is a Virtual AdventureRun


In times like these it is very important to stay positive and active to allow you to stay healthy.  Unfortunately, at the moment it is not possible to go and enjoy your favourite activity at your local AdventureRun events, but we want to help you to stay healthy and to continue working on your healthy habits. We have launched Virtual AdventureRun that will give an opportunity to exercise.


Entries are open on www.adventurerun.co.za.


All our Virtual AdventureRuns are pet friendly!

What is a Virtual AdventureRun?  
A Virtual AdventureRun is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog or walk on the road, on a trail, or on the treadmill. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. 


That's the kind of flexibility offered by our Virtual AdventureRuns. Runners who sign up for a Virtual AdventureRun register online and simply choose their own starting line, whether it's a treadmill or a neighbourhood street or your own favourite trail. You enter a predetermined distance on our entry portal and complete the distance at your preferred location, but within the indicated timeframe. Once have completed your virtual run and it has been recorded on a GPS device, you send the proof through to adventurerun.results@gmail.com before the cut-off time. The race date, time and distance will be officially recorded and can then be used for various entities like medical schemas, challenges, etc.  All the results will be recorded on adventurerun.co.za 


How does it work?

You will need to enter the Virtual AdventureRun via our online entry portal (www.adventurerun.co.za).

You can then run your own race on the following days and times:

When you have completed your run, you will need to send us your race results from your GPS fitness tracker to qualify.  This can either be from, for example your Fitbit and Garmin app or even Strava.

Your race results will then be emailed to you and the results will be available on our website as well.
