A Virtual Race or Virtual Challenge is the optimal way for you to easily organize an event for your company, organization, team or charity organization that brings people together remotely from all corners of the world.
What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is an event held remotely, where participants can join in from everywhere and run a set distance or course decided by the event organizer. Participants can choose where and when they want to complete the race (usually in a set time frame of a week or a month), choose their own route or track and afterwards record their results into a global result list. The generated result list connects all racers across the world into a context where their results are compared and listed publicly. Usually some kind of prize for winning or participating is offered. Many Virtual Races contribute to charitable events and are organized by companies for activation and unity of employees.
