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