Can you complete 700k within a year or more?
Over a year (average of 2k a day) or less than that if you want..
Using live mapping to follow the path of the lightning bolt across Brazil
We have gone virtual, but in a super cool way...

Run, Cycle, Swim or Walk the length of the longest ever recorded single lightning bolt, 700 kilometres, between now and 2022. As sports events return to action in 2021 and into 2022, log both your training activities and the real life events all towards this ultimate challenge to give yourself a achievable fitness goal for the next year.
As well as manually logging towards your accumulative distance you can connect your popular apps such as Strava or Fitbit to do this automatically - what are you waiting for?
It works out an average of 2k a day, and that's without our FREE extensions!
With an Insanely Cool Medal, optional High Quality Technical T-Shirt, Personalised Certificate and FREE Extensions if you need, we have plenty of rewards packed in to keep you motivated.
Not only that but we have teamed up with My Virtual Mission to provide a choice of TWO live virtual scenic routes to choose from.
The UK route, which takes you from the start at the Olympic Park through the Chiltern Hills, Covent Garden, Chinatown, Big Ben, the O2, London Bridge, Wembley, Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Box Hill, the South Downs, up to the Cotswolds before finishing at the Brecon Beacons.
OR you can complete the actual path of the real life lightning bolt, as it was recorded, across southern Brazil.
Log your activities on your Apple watch, Strava, Fitbit, Nike Run Club or manually. You can easily return to the app to log your activities, upload the proof and rack up your distance towards the 700 kilometre goal.
