With the continuing lockdown and the increased interest in 'virtual' racing, what's the thoughts / policy on holding virtual club events here on Fetch?

I'm Secretary for UKNR and have just been discussing with our committee some of our upcoming handicap events that we were planning to hold, it being suggested that we consider transferring them to the 'orange site' in a virtual format instead. Obviously with this weeks developments over there this throws a potential spanner in the plan ....

I thought I saw someone make a suggestion that expanding the club pages in some way here may be good timing with any exodus coming this way, but obviously there may be some conflict of interest with FERC.

Just looking for thoughts really ...

It was actually the fake parkruns and virtual weekend that got me thinking.

Obviously I wouldn't be as presumptuous to just add a 'virtual' event at some point in future to the Race Finder for the primary intention of a a few of our Clubbies having a competitive blast against each other. So was just thinking aloud as it were.

@Fetch I've replied to your Fmail about club Ambassadors. It maybe that this is something that could be explored further around those discussions.

OOOOh yes, I was thinking about this last night on my run!
Our local fell league has opened themselves up for virtual competition, in this instance you run the routes on your own and submit your times and they'll compile the results table as normal.

Not sure on ideas on how to make it a practical thing though.
