FAQ

Q. What is a virtual run?

A. A virtual run is a run that you complete at any time, when it’s convenient for you. You can run outdoors or on the treadmill, it doesn’t matter, as long as you cover the distance.

Q. I don’t run, can I still participate?

A. Of course! Walking is just fine, and your dog will enjoy a walk with you too.

Q. I don’t have a dog but I like the bling! Can I register?

Q. I can’t quite run 5km/10km/half marathon, can I still enter?

A. You can complete your chosen distance all at once, or accumulate that distance over the month so yes, you’re very welcome to enter.

Q. How do I prove I’ve done the distance?

A. There are a number of sites that you can record your distance through. Strava (www.strava.com) is a popular one.

Of course we’d love to see more than just that – feel free to share pictures of where you run and portraits of your four legged running buddy.
