Virtual races during pandemic?

Since most, if not all races will be cancelled for a while, why not set up some virtual races in the race calendar for each distance every Sunday?

Results should be for the race distance and not a flying 5k during a 4 miles run etc and include a GPS track. It would give us something to do each weekend for a bit ;)

Quite annoying that I am probably close to PB form for 10k to half marathon and have a lack of opportunities!!

This would be fantastic, and might also be a good Fetch recruiting strategy.

Whilst I suss it out, make yourself some Fetch Miles to compete on:

Could we have the virtual races for future weeks in the plan....I need a bit of training to commit to the half marathon and strangely a virtual race is a motivator.

Fetch has added the virtual races to each weekend now, so we can pick a distance in the future and plan for it. Thanks Fetch. (organising 5 races a week takes some doing!)

Got something to say?
