What is a virtual 5K and 10K race?
A virtual 5K or 10K race is simply a 5K or 10K race that be completed at your own pace, individually or as a team, anywhere you like – at home, in the gym or your local footpath – you choose the location. You pay to enter your virtual 5K or 10K race, run the 5K for 10K race then you're sent a virtual 5K or 10K race medal through the post.
There are many people who would love to participate in a physical 5K or 10K race, but are unable to for one reason or another, whether that be through their location or simply a lack of confidence in their physical ability. Virtual 5K, 10K and Half Marathon races also have many benefits, for example, you don't need to deal with traffic, parking, poor weather or unexpected schedule conflicts or injuries that might cause you to miss the 5K or 10K race.
