What is a virtual challenge?  A virtual challenge can done from any location you choose. You can run, jog, walk, cycle, swim, use a wheelchair - whatever you choose and however you choose to complete a distance.  There is no restriction on discipline.  We aim to be as inclusive as impossible. 

You get to complete your own challenge, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you.

Step 1: Sign up for any Race The Distance Challenge

Step 2: Complete it whenever and wherever you want to. As long as you complete the distance, you would have earn't your medal.  We send out your medal to you.

Step 3: Simply submit your result on the individual product to be eligible for the annual Hall Of Fame (the top 3 places in all varying distances). If you have a result that qualifies for the Hall of Fame, we would require a screen shot from an app, or some form of proof.

Step 4: Check to see if you have made it onto our Hall Of Fame at the end of each year, when the results will be sent out via a newsletter.
