Virtual Run = Physical Distancing + Socially Uniting: Trail Running Series goes virtual

We cannot run together through the trails but we can run by ourselves. Share the fun running or walking… virtually. The organizers of the Augusta Adventure Festival have gone virtual.

Run your own course at the same time as everyone else at this virtual run. Use Facebook Live, ZOOM, Strava or Race Map live tracking to compete with the others in a virtual 5k, 10k or 15k.

Your experience at the Virtual Trail Running Series

Most running events are canceled at the moment so you will get to enjoy this virtual run. Whilst the event is competitive it is probably more about engaging with friends and the running community. Challenge your friends even if you cannot be with them physically.

Buy tickets for the virtual run

You can get a single run ticket for 15 AUD and 2 races for 25 AUD. You can also sign up for the Premium version at 55 AUD and get 2 races, the official event t-shirt, Fitbit Phone Armband, 32gi Gel, 2 x HIIT Factory online classes and 30 AUD digital voucher at Footpro. 

Just head to Rapid Ascent’s website to sign up.
