VIRTUAL RUNS WITH MYRUN RESULTS

********** UPDATE 28TH MARCH ***********

Look forward to T Shirt and Medal. Advising you can still order your t shirt and medal for your virtual runs.

We strongly advise to keep to short distances at the moment 1mile, 4K and 5k. It’s imperative that we strictly adhere to the guidelines and at the same time keep active and a clear the mind by getting out of the house for daily exercise.

We are recommended by Government to exercise daily within a 2k zone. Be sensible and only stay out for a short while and not going over the distance. Again Keep it short 1mile to 5k as mentioned above. Use these short distances as your daily virtual runs over the next 2 weeks. After this you can run further distances if the current restrictions are lifted and we are not putting ourselves and the public at risk. We will accept virtual runs over 5k if proof can be verified by treadmill stats or video and images of you running around your garden etc and not out in public spaces. It must be your own private dwelling and main residence.

We hope this will motivate and help maintain good mental health that we all need to get over these extreme times. We need to find the right balance of keeping active, healthy and at the same time Strictly adhering to Government and Health Guidelines. Think of the shirt and medal as some small reward for contributing to battling Covid 19 and adhering to the guidelines.

All of our MyRun Community virtual runs are free. You just pay for your t shirt and medal and add your time to the weekly results. The Mater Hospital are our April Chosen Charity. If you purchase t shirt, medal and make a donation to the Mater Hospital to help their frontline staff and Patients you can also run in any of their listed distances. Again short distances until restrictions lifted and longer distances after that. Our virtual runs will be available for several months.

These conditions do not apply to Northern Ireland and the UK who can participate in longer distances.

****************************************

MyRunResults, like all of you have been effected by the corona virus situation. We hope you are keeping well and safe during these extraordinary times. We ask that you adhere to social distancing and guidance set out by the HSE and government advice. 

We know that running is a big part of your lives and contributes greatly to our mental health & wellbeing. To help you through these strange times we have set up FREE virtual runs.

We have also partnered with Athletics Ireland who are running virtual runs through Stava. We have created paid options with t shirt & medal option for those who like that little bit of extra motivation.  Click HERE for paid options.

Select from a number of distances from 1 mile to Ultra Marathon. See Virtual events calendar and race distances available for each event.

When you finish your run you can add your time to our virtual results page. You can verify your time through any wearable device technology that recorded your run. (Strava, Garmin, Fit bit etc)


Dont have a running watch? These are some good entry level products on the market.

     

Top sellers on amazon.co.uk can be found here


We will host Virtual events on a weekly basis and invite Athletics Clubs and Charities to create their own events.

 

We know this does not create the same feeling and experience we get from an actual race or event environment. However, as we need to run on our own, or in a group with less than 4 at a distance of 2m. It can be difficult to get motivated and keep going. We hope that our interactive virtual runs and new MyRun Community page will help you through the next few weeks.
