In a Nutshell
A virtual challenge is a fitness goal that tasks you to run, cycle, walk, swim, step or wheel a certain distance over a specified period of time.
Anyone of any ability can participate and it can be completed at any location, at your own pace, and in however many stints you as you like. It’s a great way of keeping fit and staying motivated to reach your individual fitness goals.
What’s the Difference Between a Virtual Challenge and a Virtual Race?
In virtual races, you compete against the clock and against other participants. You typically run, walk, cycle or swim the set distance and upload your results online to compare your performance against others around the world.
Generally, virtual races are completed in one stint so are limited to a few hours and shorter distances, such as a 5k or 10k distance. These can also be demanding on the participants and are not always suitable for all abilities.
Our virtual challenges give you the entire month to cover your chosen distance! You have the benefit of being able to achieve longer distances by reaching your goal in multiple stints over the month at a time and place that suits you best. For example, our cycling challenges goes as high as 600 miles!
We also cater to all abilities, allowing you to choose a distance that most appeals to you. We recommend one that is challenging, yet achievable in a discipline that suits you best.
