What is FAR VR?
findarace VR (FAR VR) is a great way to stay motivated, earn a medal and do some good with 100% of the profits going to charity.
What is a virtual race though?
A virtual race is just that. You can complete it whenever and wherever you want. You can do it at the gym, on the roads... anywhere you can run or walk or hike.
How does the charity donation work?
25% of the entry fees will go to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Vaccine Development Fund. If you want to raise any additional money during your running that would be even better. There is also an option for an additional donation during check-out - 100% of this will go to the charity.
What options are there for Plan B Act 2?
We have a few more options available for Act 2 than we had for Plan B. You can either:
1) COMPETE - Challenge someone to a specific distance, a total number of kms or a running streak.
2) COLLABORATE - Invite one or more people to achieve a team goal.
3) SOLO - If you don't fancy either of the above you can just choose a distance or a race challenge on your own.
There are also kids race options for the little ones to get involved.
For more information on each of these please visit the event pages
What’s the difference between a distance challenge and a race distance?
The distance challenges are for a cumulative distance in the time period and a race distance has to be completed in one go. Depending on your goals you can choose which works best for you.
What do I have to do to sign up?
Super easy! Just choose the option that works best for you and enter your details. Once you've signed up we will keep you informed throughout the challenge. All you need to do is complete your challenge before the deadline, and upload your evidence.
For the 'compete' challenge the person who you are challenging will get an email to say they have been challenged. They don't need to do anything more than get started. The winner of the challenge will get the medal, the runner up will get a Plan B pin badge.
For the collaborate options, your team members will get an invitation to sign themselves up to your team. Each signed up team member will get a medal once the challenge has been complete.
What do you mean by race evidence?
To get the medal we need to know you completed the challenge. We can take evidence in many forms; a photo of the distance on your watch/treadmill, a screenshot from any one of the running apps, an excel sheet you use to log your runs. We're the believing type so if you tell us you've done it, we trust you. You'd only be cheating yourself anyway and who would do that???
How do I upload my evidence?
You can upload your evidence using the specific links on the evidence form here. If you have any problems just give us a shout. firstname.lastname@example.org
Where can I get information on the races I’ve entered?
We will send an email with all the information for your race and another to let you know to send over the evidence. If you have any questions at all just get in touch
Who can enter a virtual race?
Everyone! We suggest that anyone under 18 should complete the distance under supervision. By entering a FAR virtual race you agree that any injury or damage caused by completing your race / challenge is your own responsibility. FIND A RACE Ltd accepts no responsibility for any damage or injury occurring during completing a race / challenge. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.
When will I get my medal?
As soon as the time period finishes we will send out a medal to everyone who has completed their race or challenge. It may take up a to a week to receive the medal, hopefully a lot sooner :)
