Virtual racing to get you running in 2017…and to keep you running!

posted in: virtual running races | 0

Need motivation to start running in 2017? Well look no further!

Or maybe you just haven’t managed to get out there for a run lately and you need an achievable goal?

How about a virtual race?

This is such a brilliant idea because it means that you can run the race on or around the suggested neon-1date(s) anywhere in the world, at any pace, in any old pair of trainers or tatty t-shirt, with a group of friends, your dog, your children or alone!

Then register your result with me and receive a medal.

There are none of the usual irritants of racing that can include the long queues for the loo, traffic jams en route and the time it can take to travel to the race venue, or too many runners, bottlenecks during the race, cut-off times and rules (you can wear your headphones!) And you can relax because you won’t feel intimidated by other more experienced runners, and let’s face it we’ve all experienced that.

Virtual Racing allows you to be who you are and to run your own race, on your own terms, anywhere in the world!

What better way to keep fit and healthy and motivated in 2017?

I’m just trying out some virtual races at the moment to see how they go – but why not kick off with the Harri’s Running Team New Year Resolution 5k or 10k? Or both! Take a look at my webpage for suggested dates (these aren’t set in stone, you can choose a different date if you prefer but I’ve set dates so that you have time to train) and you’ll also find out what  you need to do (visit: Harri’s Virtual Races) to enter the race – it only costs £12, payable by Paypal (20% will go to charity) and then I’ll post your medal out to you when you’ve proved to me that you’ve completed the distance.

Doesn’t matter whether you run the whole way, walk some, jog a bit, have a sit down…Whatever works for you. Or you can set the clock and go hell for leather!

And tell your friends because they might like to join you.

You might also like to join our closed Facebook group page Harri’s Virtual Races Facebook page or I’ll join you when you sign up – you can write about your goals, tell me and your fellow runners about your training, post some pictures, ask for advice, and then when you’ve completed your race post your garmin/strava/running/walking apps/Fitbit or Vivosmart data, or just a photo showing me that you’ve done it,  I will send you your first medal of the year! And if you’re local, who knows I might even run it with you, if you’d like me to.

Soon I plan to produce funky bespoke medals and maybe even some embarrassingly themed races –  here’s one medal I have my eye on (below) imagesso continue following and watching so that you can keep running and make 2017 the year you start collecting fabulous bling and staying fit, healthy and strong by running the Harri’s Running Team Virtual Races!
