Welcome to Virtual Running UK, the on-line community for virtual running and racing. Although we are based in the UK, part of the beauty of virtual runs and races is that anyone can take part, wherever they are in the world. All you have to do is register, run at a time and place of your choice and then send in evidence of your results with your unique registration number.
At Virtual Running UK, we offer two types of race that you can take part in: a free monthly race where you get to compete with others and gain points, which will add up to prizes at the end of the year; and medal races where you pay a small fee in return for a participant medal. The results of all races will be published on our results page at the beginning of the following month.
From time to time, we also include some charity fundraisers to help raise money for good causes and support our charity runners. We firmly believe that that any partnership should be 50/50 and will always donate at least 50% of the profits from these races to the named charity.
To register and receive your unique registration number, please read the information below and then register using the Registration Form.
There is a one off fee of £1.50 to register. This is to help towards the costs of running the site for those of you who only wish to take part in our free races.
If you want to take part in one of our medal races, then please don’t fill in this form; sign up directly for your medal instead and we will send you a registration number.
Please use if you only want to take part in our Free Races as refunds will not be provided if you change your mind later.
Once you have completed the form, you will receive a confirmation email from Pay Pal and your Registration Number will be sent out to you within 48 hours.
