a. What is a virtual run?

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:

  1. You can choose to complete the race whenever you like during the OOTYULTRA 2021 event window between 1-4th April 2021
  2. You can complete the race wherever you like but in a safe place, either by running alone or with your friends.
  3. 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
  4. You must connect your tracking applications to the HDOR virtual platform and view the leaderboard information of individual or groups
