Running4Women launch R4W #VirtualRun Race Series

by Press Release
Thursday 18th July 2013

Running4Women, the UK’s No.1 website community for women who enjoy running and leading an active, healthy lifestyle, have announced the launch of their R4W #VirtualRun Race Series, aimed at women around the globe

R4W #VirtualRun Race Series

A brand new concept, the R4W #VirtualRun Race Series is an exciting, motivating and fun addition to every runner’s fitness regime and delivers a unique racing experience. A virtual race is a race that runners sign up to and run a specified, timed distance without being present at an actual race location. Entry to the #VirtualRun Race Series is free and runners can take part in the #virtualrun Summer Race Series from today, with Autumn and Winter Race Series to follow later in the year.

Virtual races open up new racing opportunities and are the perfect alternative for runners who haven’t got the time to join an organised race or who simply haven’t got any races nearby that they are able to travel to easily. Virtual racing allows runners to compete against themselves and other members of the #virtualrun Race Series throughout the year, no matter where in the world they are based, what their ages are, if they are running outdoors, on a treadmill, with friends or alone, or at what time of the day they are going out for their runs.

Joanne Tranter (Manager, Special Events) from Running4Women commented: “We are very excited to launch the #VirtualRun Race Series, a lot of hard work has gone into this project. The virtual race series opens up lots of new opportunities and challenges that can easily be built and incorporated in any runner’s training and race routine.

“Signing up and committing to a race is not always straightforward for women who have to balance the day to day responsibilities of work and family life, and we are proud to give our members a fantastic platform to not only enhance their training and be able to compete against fellow runners but also to make sure that women find it easier to fit a race into their daily routine, stay fit and active and have that all important me-time.

“Entry to the #VirtualRun Race Series is free and participants even receive a race pack with a #virtualrun bib number and a finisher’s certificate, making sure it is the complete race experience. There are also extra prizes up for grabs for the best photos and tweets.”

The #VirtualRun Race Series distances include 1K, 5K and 10K races, and runners must complete all three race distances in order to get an aggregate time on the race series leaderboard and to receive a finisher’s certificate. Runs can be logged from 18th July until midnight (GMT) 31st August 2013. Runners can run where and when they want and complete the race series distances as many times as they like until they are happy with their final time.
