Virtual Run—What’s that?!
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.
Unlike a regular run, a Virtual Run means you can run anywhere, and whenever you want between 1st & 4th April. Just ensure you are running in a safe place—whether you are running solo or with friends.
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.
In a real race, your start and finish time will be recorded with the help of the RFID tags attached to your BIB. But in a virtual run, you are expected to record your running data using a GPS watch or using a running tracking application on your GPS enabled phone like Strava, MapMyRun, or Garmin. So don’t forget to connect it to the HDOR platform.
- Qualification & cut off timings:
There is no qualification time required to participate the virtual run. OOTYULTRA 2021 will not have any cut off time to finish. To earn your custom finisher medal, you must record and report (on our official virtual platform) your distance category in ONE SINGLE ATTEMPT.
- Multiple distance categories:
You can choose more than one category for registration. A flat discount of Rs. 350 is applied to each category that you choose. All the category runs must be separately completed and you can not combine them in one single run attempt. For example: If you choose to run 15k & 30k, you must report 2 different activities within the 4 days event window (27th March to 4th April 2021). Only one goodie bag with 1 T-Shirt will be sent to your address. The individual category medals will be sent to you upon verification of the running records on our HDOR virtual platform.
- Receiving goodies:
We will start shipping the goodie bags from 27th of April onwards. Do note, only those who run in a single attempt will be eligible to receive the medal. We will rely on the data reporting by HDOR to verify the run details. Kindly ensure the HDOR platform tracks your run data.
- Using last year’s Refund credit code:
If you had registered for OOTYULTRA 2020, you would have received a ‘Refund Credit’ code on your email ID. Use it in the ‘Discount Code’ section while registering and enjoy a discounted rate of Rs 350. This is only available for OOTYULTRA 2021 registrations. It will not be valid for next year’s run.
