Virtual Races Explained and Five You Can Start Today!

A virtual race is a race that you choose to complete whenever you would like. You can walk, run, or use a treadmill. The beauty of a virtual race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you are, no matter what time of day it is.

While event racing is fun and allows you to run with like-minded people, there aren't live races going on currently, so virtual races give you a great opportunity to still stay active and virtually race with your peers.

Additionally, running your typical organized race often involves traveling, not to mention if you've signed up for a race, you have no control over the weather. If you're not into crowds, then live event racing may not be for you. If you're new to racing, virtual racing is the perfect solution to all those problems.

Yes.Fit is a fun virtual fitness platform that anyone can do. Start with shorter virtual races or manageable fitness workouts and progress to longer races and more strenuous workouts. Whether you are running, walking, or cycling, do it at your own pace and time frame to fit your lifestyle, schedule, and personal goals. You can also earn progress updates and badges for your various achievements along the way. Once you are finished, get rewarded with race medals, coins, and other amazing fitness apparel!

Belugas, Lights, and Bears! Oh My! virtual race is located in the small town of Churchill in northern Manitoba, Canada. This place is known as the “Polar Bear Capital of the World." Hundreds of bears pass through and around the town on their way out to the freezing Hudson Bay ice every fall.

In the summer season, the belugas are the stars of that season, where over 60,000 belugas migrate to the Hudson Bay and nearby rivers to feed and give birth, creating a natural spectacle.

Churchill is also one of the world's premiere viewing destinations for the aurora borealis (northern lights) that dance in the sky some 300 nights each year. So get set for your once in a lifetime virtual tundra experience.
