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.
How does the charity donation work?
All profits from the virtual race will go to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. If you want to raise any additional money during your running that would be even better
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.
What do I have to do to sign up?
Super easy! Just choose the distance that you want 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 race before the deadline, upload your evidence and your medal will be sent out in the post.
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 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?
Before the end of the time period we will send an email with a link for you to upload the evidence on findarace.com. Upload your evidence there and 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 :)
