Train for Your Next Virtual Run Event Now

The world may be socially distant for now, but there are still ways to stay healthy, active and connected. With a virtual run event, you can tick each of those boxes! These online races are fantastic alternatives to traditional options, and they offer some truly incredible benefits over their counterparts. To get on track with running in a virtual race of your own, try Virtual Run Canada; where we’ll introduce you to some of the best races out there!

Why Should I Try a Virtual Run?

When it comes to virtual races, there’s so much to love! From staying physically fit to receiving cool race swag, many benefits are the same or similar to traditional racing. However, virtual races allow individuals more freedom and control. If you choose to enter a virtual run event, you can complete it how and where you want, selecting a timeframe that works best for you.

Tips on Finding the Right Race

Another excellent quality of virtual races is their availability. Because there is no one set location to show up at, the available options of races you can enter are almost endless. With so many choices to choose from, it can make finding the right race package difficult! Below is a small list of tips to help you find the virtual run that’s most suited to your preferences.
  • Choosing the Type of Run : One of the first things to consider when trying to find the right race is the type of run itself. If you are somewhat sporty, a 4K might be a good option for a race. Or, if you are up for more of a challenge, you can put yourself to the test with a triathlon! As previously mentioned, your participation in virtual races isn’t only limited to what’s local. So you can find a race format you gain the most excitement from and then enter it easily through our online tools.
  • Choosing the Theme : Every race at Virtual Run Canada has a creative theme attached to it. We’ve got runs involving anything from your favorite sci-fi franchise to “under the sea” themes. Whatever interests you, we probably have it! Plus, when you run a race with us, you’ll receive incredible swag designed around the specific theme. Get a few friends together to run the race of your choice, and you’ll walk away with unique memorabilia you can treasure forever.
  • Choosing a Cause : Most of our races also have a cause or a benefit associated with them. And unlike many local races, who support the same companies year after year, virtual runs are the opposite. You name a charity, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a virtual race supporting it. For help locating a race with a cause you genuinely care about, contact the Virtual Run Canada team today!
