The COVID-19 pandemic has prevented us from participating in some of our favourite sport and exercise activities. However, it has forced many of us to form new exercise habits; walking and running have become staples for many of us. So why not embrace it and join VU Sport’s Virtual Running Festival.
The Festival will aim to replicate a typical fun run – with the added convenience of being available anywhere, anytime. It will run between Monday 4 October to Friday 15 October, and participants can choose from the following distances:
- 3 km run/walk
- 5 km run
- 10 km run
- Half marathon (21.1km).
There will be a leaderboard for each distance, and participants can complete multiple distances throughout the Festival. Any tracking app can be used — Strava and Nike Run Club are two of our favourites — and to join the leaderboard, participants simply send a screenshot of their run/walk to the Team VU Facebook Group or email us at [email protected].
Please note: Participants can only send one result for each distance.

- Run a distance that suits you, at a time that suits you.
- Provide motivation to run a new distance or beat your personal best.
- Join in and compete with other members of the VU community.
