The Spirit of Ultramalaivasi Virtual Ultramarathon – FAQs
About the Spirit of Ultramalaivasi Virtual Ultramarathon (2)
A virtual run is a running challenge you enter where you are expected to meet a target e.g completing OOTYULTRA 2021 – The Spirit of #Ultramalaivasi Virtual run 30k distance
Virtual races are very similar to OOTYULTRA real event – you enter a race and when you finish, apart from accomplishing the goal, you get a medal, goodies, and bragging rights :). However, the OOTYULTRA 2021 virtual race will be different from the real in a few different ways:
“2020 has sure been a challenging and unpredictable year for all. Lockdowns, not being able to travel to see our family and friends, businesses closing down, and – yes – races being canceled! Yet, these setbacks can’t bring the runner’s in us down. We will continue moving!” – Olesja Ossipenko, GavaTea, the Title Sponsor of OOTYULTRA 2021
The Spirit of #Ultramalaivasi Virtual Run, our new event, will be conducted between the 1st to 4th of April, 2021, in place of OOTYULTRA!
The COVID-19 pandemic has literally shut down all sporting events and the 3rd edition of the OOTYULTRA was postponed and eventually canceled. Conducting the regular OOTYULTRA marathon in April 2021 is not feasible at this time.
The prime idea behind this virtual run is to unite the OOTYULTRA running fans across the world through the spirit of running and at the same time provide greater value through the product & services engagement opportunities to the sponsors and partners.
The virtual event will offer 15k, 30k, 60k & 90k distances.
The registrations for this event will begin from the 1st of Jan, 2021.
