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.

Why participate in the VU Virtual Running Festival?

  • 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.
  • Win some awesome prizes!
