“Run Romania!” is a virtual event with real kilometres, which promotes an active lifestyle and the overcoming of one’s own limitations, meant for anyone from absolute beginners to experienced athletes.
This is a Community of Mutual Support, rather than a competitive race, which offers participants an extra-motivation to remain active, by playing one or multiple sports, frequently, during the whole year 2021, as well as interesting information about the places they “go trough” on their way to the Finish line.
Participants don’t meet at a real Start line, but each does his/her regular workouts in their place of residence (when and where they like) and gradually uploads the real-life mileage into their account, thus advancing on the virtual map towards the Finish line. Kilometres covered in real-life races are also eligible to upload.
There are 4 different sports to choose from: walking, running, biking, swimming, and various distance options for each sport:
- Walking: way (983 km), way and return (1966 km);
- Running: way (983 km), way and return (1966 km), round trip (3.004 km);
- Biking: round trip (3.004 km), round trip and return (6.008 km);
- Swimming: 100 km, 250 km or 500 km.
People who are super-active could also combine any two or three sports, for any distance options; for these multiple options, there are discount packages.
The event is offered during the whole year 2021: the official Start is on January 1st, and the Finish on December 31st, 2021. Enrollments remain open until August 31st, 2021.
All participants who successfully complete the distance option(s) they enrolled for until December 31st by 23:59 at the latest gain the Finisher Status and will be presented with the event personalized Belt Buckle or Medal, according to the option they expressed during registration.
“Run Romania!” is a challenge, for sure, but one which is totally achievable with grit, consistency and determination! It matters less how fast one gets to the Finish line, and far more to successfully get there: to find the strength, discipline and determination to persevere to the end!
