A virtual running event is a race that you can do in any location you choose - at the gym, at home on the treadmill or out by yourself around the block. You can run at your own pace, when you want to and how you want to.

There are a few easy ways to provide evidence that you’ve completed the challenge:

  • Using any one of the popular running apps will allow you to screenshot your achieved distance
  • If you’ve completed the distance on a treadmill you can manually record the activity on your app and screenshot this (Remember - You’re only cheating yourself if you add extra distance!)
  • A photo of your distance of a treadmill or smartwatch/fitness tracker
  • For longer challenges, you can log your runs in a spreadsheet

Evidence can be submitted in your FAR account.

You can complete a Plan B virtual running race Distance Challenge in as many runs as you need to within the time period.

If you’re running a Plan B Race Challenge you’ll need to complete the event in one go.

For some listed events you’ll need to finish the challenge in one run to qualify as a winner or in the hall of fame.
