What is a Virtual Running Race?

A virtual run is similar to a traditional running race, except you can complete it anywhere and at any time you like whether it’s day or night, in your local park or on the treadmill at the gym.

There is not a required location or mandatory start time, so can complete a virtual run when suits you.

Our fun Virtual races can also be completed at your own pace, and are a fantastic way to challenge yourself and achieve your own fitness goals. Stay motivated by sharing your time and distance with the supportive running community and receive a custom-made medal in the post.

How do I start virtual running?

Starting running has never been easier with ACE Races.

First, you need to enter one of our virtual races before completing it anywhere, anytime and at your own pace.

Use any fitness tracker or smartphone app to track yourself, and take a screenshot of your time and distance. If you’re using a treadmill or other gym equipment, you can take a photo of the display when finished.

Send your results to results@ace-races.co.uk and once verified we’ll send you a custom medal to acknowledge your achievement.

How much do Virtual Runs cost to enter?

The majority of our ACE Races virtual running events cost just £15 to enter. You can also treat family and friends who love to run with an ACE Races Gift card. Available in denominations of £15, £30 and £45, the gift card must be redeemed within 12 months from the day of purchase.

Do I have to complete the entire virtual run in one session?

The main goal in any virtual race is to finish, and it isn’t always necessary to run the race distance in just one session. Everybody has a different ability, so whether you prefer to walk or run, you can split the virtual run distance over a few days, weeks or even months.

Many of our virtual half marathon and virtual marathon competitors choose the split the distance into sections they feel more comfortable with. Our cumulative distance challenges are designed with a target distance for each month, and our annual virtual challenges are to be completed over twelve months.

When do I receive my Custom Medal?

Our ACE Races team are able to verify your virtual race results within seven working days of receiving them. Once verified, we’ll send your shiny, custom-made and collectable medal in the post. Look out for the email confirmation when dispatched.
