How It Works

With the current Coronavirus situation worldwide and with many unable to get out to complete runs, please note that until further notice, any of our events can be covered through other means of exercise. This includes anything that covers distance such as cycling, rowing and step counters through walking. You can mix and match as many different forms of exercise, as long as all of them combined covers the distance of your medal.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us on races@virtualrunningevents.co.uk

1) Choose Your Challenge

Choose your event and purchase your entry, we ship worldwide. If the event is live and open, you have 2 months to complete the distance (unless it is a 3 or 12 month challenge). Make sure you include ALL runners names on the notes so they can receive their ebib. If the event is not open, you will not be able to start earning your evidence or submit it until after the start date – the event will tell you this on our website.

2) Receive Your Personalised E-bib

Once your order is on our system, you will receive your personalised e-bib e-mailed (within 48 hours, excluding weekends).

3) Challenge complete, Claim Your Medal

Although the challenges last 2 months (or more), you can claim your medal as soon as you have run/walked the distance and the event is open. You will be sent your medal as soon as your evidence has been received, you won’t need to wait until the end of the challenge. Please send us your evidence by using our form. If you are using more than one run/walk as evidence, please may we recommend applications such as layout or photocollage, which will allow you to include up to nine photos per attachment. We also accept watch screenshots, a photo of a treadmill or a photo of a spreadsheet/written sheet with the date and distances on.

4) Receive Your Medal

All evidence is processed within a 48 hour period during our working times (*unless otherwise stated on the medal advert*), and then posted 2nd class. Average turnaround for each order will normally be around 3-4 working days. For EU and International orders, please see below our timescales. Once your evidence has been submitted, please sit back, relax and wait for your bespoke medal to be posted to you, you’ve earned it! *Please read our terms and conditions regarding our live event medals. Much like any other event, only medals that have received evidence within the given timescales will be released*

*Children Running Virtual Running Events Races*

We encourage children of ALL ages to be getting out and doing some exercise! Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to strap your expensive watches on their arms……….if you’re ordering any medals for a child, just pop a note on your order to tell us. You can even put their name on the delivery section of the order so the envelope will come addressed to them. No evidence is required for children’s medals, when you’re sure they have completed the task, just drop us an email to know and we’ll send it to them. If you’d like the medal to be sent straight away for you to present to them when they have completed it, please email us to let us know.
