The Coronavirus crisis has led to the cancellation or postponement of almost all endurance events. One clear way forward is to stage a virtual event. We've built a tool to enable organizers to do it cheaply and easily. Here we explain how it works and why organizers should consider the Virtual Event option.
A virtual event is an event where, instead of running the same course at the same time, your runners complete the event remotely. Runners take on the prescribed distance in their own time and place, and record themselves using a running app or GPS watch, in order to submit their results online.
There are broadly two reasons to stage a virtual event:
We won't charge you anything to transfer across runners who had previously signed up for a cancelled/postponed event. We're offering this as a free service to help organizers at this difficult time.
For any new sign-ups we bring you, we charge a flat 20% of the ticket price. There is no upfront charge.
Once you've decided to go ahead with a Virtual Event, just take a few short steps:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org asking to use our Virtual Events tool. We'll create your new virtual event page in no time, and share it with you. Your virtual event page is where runners can sign up and then submit their results after the event.
