Virtual Runner LIVE 2019







Virtual Runner LIVE – Sign Up For A 2K, 5K or 10K in Nottingham!

After the success and brilliant feedback on our Winter event, we are now bringing you the chance to run with us in the Summer!

Virtual Runner LIVE returns to the Embankment but on the other side of the river to add a different feel to our event. We have teamed up with Cycle Live to make it a full weekend of Sport! So join us on Saturday afternoon of 22nd June and then you then have the option to cycle with the Great Notts Bike riders on Sunday 23rd June.

Like our Winter event, you can take part in a 2K, 5K or 10K race. And for the brave, hardcore runners out there you can take on all 3! If you take on the challenge of all three you will receive 3 different medals and a bonus goodie.

We’re also very pleased to be working alongside the School of Calisthenics team who will be doing your warm up and their community will be joining you on the run too.

Our runs are usually virtual, meaning you can do them wherever you like, whenever you like, but we’re using this live event to get the Virtual Running community together and meet as many of you as possible!

Which Race Length Should I Choose?

The 2K race is ideal for children and for new starters – essentially for those who enjoy our fun run races! It’s open to all, so if you’re a more advanced runner, feel free to use it to keep your legs moving and earn that extra medal. The Virtual Running community is really supportive and helpful, and if this is yours or your child’s first running event, it’s guaranteed to be a great and friendly introduction!



The 5k is a great introduction to running races for new runners, but whether this is your first race, or you’re working towards a PB, all are welcome! Our Nottingham 10K is that extra bit challenging, making a great final step before your journey towards the half marathon or marathon.

Feel free to enter all three and complete a total of 17k, which will earn your three unique bespoke medals!

All abilities are welcome, from walkers through to sub-20 minute 5k runners, and children are welcome too. Whichever race you enter, all runners receive a medal upon finishing!

Below are the routes, please note these are provisional and subject to approval. The 10k is two laps, but each lap is slightly different.
